ORU Tops #8 Xavier, 64-42

Posted: Updated:

ORU walked into Xavier's Cintas Center, and laid one on the eighth-ranked team in the country.  Playing without three of its best players, Xavier couldn't hang with the Golden Eagles, who raced to a 64-42 win.

Dominique Morrison lead the way for ORU, scoring 19 points.  Warren Niles added 15 points and seven assists, while Steven Roundtree chipped in with 12 points.

Xavier was lead by Travis Taylor, who scored 11.  The Musketeers really missed those three suspended players on offense, who account for 40% of Xavier's scoring.  The team shot just under 33% for the game.

"Full-strength it might have been a different game, but they weren't here to play so we don't know," Morrison said. "We can't control what happened last week. We could only control what happened on the court today."

Xavier lost for only the second time in the last 46 games at the Cintas Center. It was the Musketeers' worst loss at Cintas, which opened for the 2000-01 season, and their worst home loss overall since an 80-49 defeat to La Salle on Jan. 23, 2000, at Cincinnati Gardens.

ORU comes home for its next game, a Thursday night clash with the Big 12's Texas Tech Red Raiders.  Tip-off from the Mabee center is at 7:05 p.m.
