Romain Sato kept Xavier (26-6) afloat early, scoring 16 of the Musketeers’ first 18 points. West, a second-team All- American, scored only one bas ket the first 17 minutes, but once he found his shot, he scored 10 straight to tie the game at 40.

West had 18 points and eight rebounds. “We challenged Dave at half time and he answered the call,” Matta said. Ebi Ere had 20 points, including baskets immediately answering the Xavier’s first two ties, and seven rebounds.

After moving the match inside, the teams played on three courts instead of six which forced the match to last well over four hours. The Hurricanes were forced to concede the final two matches because of travel arrangements.
