Offensive issues plague Xavier basketball in a loss to No. 12 Villanova

A standing-room-only crowd packed into Cintas Center Saturday afternoon and the 10,647 fans got to see Villanova – ranked No. 12 in the Associated Press poll – do exactly what the Wildcats have become known for since the Big East Conference realigned.

Villanova dictated and controlled how everything went and never allowed Xavier anything that resembled real momentum.

The Musketeers, behind one of their worst offensive showings of the season, lost 64-55, a season-low total for points scored in a game this season.
