XU Hoops: Xavier Keeps Rolling, Beats ‘Nova

Xavier chose a good time to play its best basketball, by winning four games in a row, and beating Villanova at home 66-54 Sunday. Naji Marshall had 17 points for the Musketeers (15-13, 7-8, 102nd). Marshall was a major catalyst in the 17-0 run XU had in the second half that broke the game wide open. Phil Booth had 14 points for the Wildcats (20-8, 11-4, 30th), but 12 of those came in the first half. This win is only the second time Xavier has beaten Villanova in 13 past meetings. The Muskies’ will play at St. John’s (20-8, 8-7, 36th) Thursday night at 6:30 PM. TV: FS1 Radio: 700 WLW
