Xavier Muskateers Take Down the Miami RedHawks

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Xavier spreads out the scoring in a win over Miami.

It was the 100th meeting of Xavier and Miami, and the Musketeers played like they were more than familiar with the visiting RedHawks. Xavier pulled out a 77-51 victory over Miami.



Four different Musketeers scored in double figures, and another finished with nine points. Dee Davis led all scorers with 15 points and poured in three three-point buckets. Semaj Christon added an additional 13 points with eight dimes. James Barr added a double-double, with both 11 points and rebounds.

The Musketeer bigs made the difference in the game, as they helped to outpace their opponent in boards, 42-25. Miami last led in the contest with 10:12 remaining in the first half, when they went up 18-17 following a Will Sullivan trey. Xavier responded on the next possession when Dee Davis knocked down one of his 3-pointers to put the Musketeers back up two, with a lead they would not relinquish.

Miami shot 37.7 percent from the field in the loss as Geovonie McKnight led 'Hawks scorers with 10.  Will Felder chipped in eight.

Miami is now 0-3 and next plays host to Wilmington College on Saturday at 3 p.m.
