CINCINNATI (AP) Providence coach Ed Cooley knows how to beat Xavier, but he'd never done it at the Cintas Center. Finally, he could leave town with a good feeling.
Isaiah Jackson scored 13 points , and Providence got its first Big East road win Wednesday night, holding on for a 64-62 victory over Xavier.
The Friars (12-7, 2-4) were one of only four teams to beat the Musketeers last season, doing it on the Friars' home court and again in the semifinals of the league tournament at Madison Square Garden. They were 0-7 at the Cintas Center heading into their rematch.
