Creighton beats No. 13 Xavier behind balanced scoring effort

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) After one of its roughest first-half shooting performances of the season, No. 13 Xavier recovered in the second half against Creighton.

Problem was, the Bluejays also got better in the final 20 minutes, and rolled to an 84-67 home victory Saturday.

Xavier (17-5, 9-2 Big East) entered the game with the nation's fifth-best field-goal shooting percentage (.503), but fell off after the first five minutes and shot just 38.7% in the first half.
