X Drops Third Straight in Razor Thin Defeat by Creighton
The No. 22 Xavier Musketeers three-game gauntlet ended in its third straight defeat on Monday afternoon as the visiting No. 7 Creighton Bluejays held on to knock off X, 72-67, before a raucous sold-out crowd at Cintas Center as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Big East Marathon. The Muskies were led by Rashid Gaston who scored 12 points and a career-high 17 rebounds in the losing effort. The Musketeers look to returning to the winning column on Sunday as they play host to the Georgetown Hoyas. Game time is set for 2:00 pm.
