Love has 17, Xavier beats Duquesne 86-50
CINCINNATI (AP)—Jason Love scored 17 points off an array of one-hand shots near the basket, and Kenny Frease had his first career double-double Thursday night, leading Xavier to an 86-50 victory over Duquesne that extended the Musketeers’ run of home-court success.
The Musketeers (14-6, 6-1 Atlantic 10) have won their last 20 games at the Cintas Center, their longest streak since the arena opened for the 2000-01 season and the fifth-longest active streak in Division I.
Xavier also has won its last 28 Atlantic 10 games at home, six shy of matching Temple’s conference record.
Love, the Musketeers’ lone senior, went 8 of 9 from the field and got nine rebounds. Frease had 13 points and 12 rebounds. Jordan Crawford added 17 points.
Duquesne (10-10, 1-5) was led by Melquan Bolding’s 14 points.
