Recap: Xavier vs. Massachusetts

Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Terrell Vinson paced all scorers with 20 points as the Massachusetts Minutemen notched an impressive road victory over the Xavier Musketeers, 77-72, in Atlantic 10 Conference action at the Cintas Center.

Freddie Riley netted 18 points on 6-of-10 from 3-point range for UMass (18-9, 8-6 A-10), which has won back-to-back games on the heels of a three-game losing streak. Trey Davis chipped in 12 points and six assists off the bench.

Xavier (16-12, 8-6) had four players in double figures on the afternoon, led by Semaj Christon with 17 points to go along with six assists. Isaiah Philmore scored 14 points, Travis Taylor logged 10 points and eight rebounds, while Brad Redford registered 13 points off the bench for the Musketeers, who lost their second straight conference home game after winning an incredible 52 of their previous 53 at the Cintas Center against A-10 opponents.

Xavier led by as many as nine in the first half but went into intermission with just a one-point lead, 35-34. It shot only 35.5 percent from the field in the opening stanza, but it made 11-of-18 from the foul line.

UMass snapped a 53-53 tie with an 8-1 run midway through the second half. The Musketeers brought their deficit to three following a Jeff Robinson jumper with under four minutes to play, but they would get no closer down the stretch.

Xavier was far from impressive from the line (19-of-29), but UMass was even worse at 10-of-20.
