XU Hoops: Marquette over Xavier 70-52

Marquette took care of Xavier handily by 18 points at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. The Golden Eagles improved to 12-3 (RTR Power Rk: 30) and the Musketeers fell to 9-7 (100). Xavier’s tough schedule, younger players, and new coaching staff are all taking their toll this season. XU will play in the Cintas Center versus Georgetown (11-4, 84) Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. TV: FS1 Radio: 700 WLW
