The Xavier Musketeers, who are ranked sixth in the nation, survived a big effort from St. John's, as they eked out a 73-68 win on Tuesday night at Carnesecca Arena.
This was a big bounce-back for St. John's after they lost at Butler, 70-45 on Saturday, but they are still winless in the Big East at 0-11, and are now 10-13 overall. They host Duke on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
