M. basketball keeping it close

Update, 10:02 p.m….Damian Hollis stepped out of bounds with 37.6 seconds remaining and the turnover gave the Musketeers the final momentum as Xavier came away with a 74-66 win. Despite the loss, the Colonials gave a great effort and never gave up, something that they’ve had difficulty not doing this season. Maureece Rice led all scorers with 22 points.
The men’s basketball team trails No. 20 Xavier by six but is refusing to let the Musketeers run away with the game the same way it did last year. The squad just hit three three-pointers in less than two minutes. This game could come down to the final minutes.
