    Central Michigan men fall to Xavier


    Cincinnati — Xavier hit 6 of its first 7 3-pointers to take a huge early lead on Wednesday to hand the Central Michigan Chippewas a 78-45 loss at the Musketeers’ Cintas Center.

    The matchup was the conclusion of a seven-game road trip that featured some of the top teams in the country.

    Xavier was the latest in a lineup of big-time programs – Missouri, DePaul, Gonzaga and Kentucky – that the Chippewas (1-6) have battled to open the season. Those five opponents are now a combined 29-6.

    Xavier (6-1) took a commanding 23-3 lead to start the game and the Chippewas trailed, 41-25 at halftime, but were outscored 14-4 to open the second half as the Musketeers built a 26-point lead, 55-29.

    Oscar Lopez Jr. scored 11 points and Brian Taylor added nine to lead the Chippewas, and Ralph Bissainthe had eight rebounds as CMU outrebounded the Musketeers, 36-31, but committed a season-high 21 turnovers and went 3-for-18 from 3.

    CMU women come up short at Cincinnati

    Guard Molly Davis’ 20 points, six assists and three steals wasn’t enough for the Central Michigan women’s basketball squad, as they fell short on the road at Cincinnati, 59-54.
