Throw it down!

Xavier got off to a hot start, but Pittsburgh freshman Guillermo Diaz Graham threw down a one-handed alley-oop slam.


Xavier guard Colby Jones got in on the action with a big-time 3 that helped the Musketeers extend their lead early.

Just like that, Xavier had built its lead to 10 points, 28-18, midway though the first half.

So smooth

Jones dropped a beautiful touch pass to Jerome Hunter for an easy lay-in, extending the Musketeers’ lead to 55-40.
