CINCINNATTI, OHIO (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Marquette men's basketball team gave up 80 points for the first time this season, as Xavier beat the Golden Eagles 86-to-79 last night in Cincinnati.

The Musketeers never trailed in the second half, as they improved to 11-and-0 at home.  Marquette came back from 12 points down to tie the game with just under eight minutes left, but Semaj Christon hit a pair of three-pointers to put the Musketeers in front for good.  Xavier capped off its victory by making seven free throws in the final 44 seconds.

 Christon scored a career-high 28 points, as Xavier improved to 3-and-0 in the Big East and 13-and-3 overall.  The Musketeers controlled the boards 39-to-20.  They made 32-of-41 from the free-throw line -- and they didn't look tired, after six players were forced out of their dorm rooms early yesterday morning due to a broken water pipe.

 Marquette hit a season-high 11 shots from beyond-the-arc.  Davante Gardner led the Eagles with 19, as they dropped to 1-and-2 in conference play and 9-and-7 overall.  They'll host Seton Hall tomorrow.
