No. 13 Xavier looks to remain atop the Big East standings and complete a season sweep of Creighton when it visits the Bluejays on Saturday in Omaha, Neb.
The Musketeers (17-4, 9-1) are coming off an 82-79 win at No. 19 UConn on Wednesday, while Creighton (12-8, 6-3) cruised to a 104-76 win over visiting St. John's that day.
Xavier nearly squandered a 17-point lead in the second half against the Huskies, who pulled to within 78-77 with 2:40 left. Souley Boum hit two late free throws to secure the Musketeers' 13th win in their past 14 games.
