Creighton hands Xavier third straight loss

Marcus Foster had a team-high 15 points as the 7th-ranked Bluejays outlasted No. 22 Xavier 72-67 on the road. The Musketeers were coming off of losses vs. No. 1 Villanova and No. 13 Butler. Box score

Incredibly impressive win for Creighton, winning at Xavier with Maurice Watson on the bench after injuring his knee. Losing Watson long time could be problematic but Bluejays showed character and depth of team with this win. That confidence could pay huge dividends if Watson is out.

Xavier just had four chances to take lead against Creighton, three within about three feet of the rim. Wow

Maurice Watson down again after re-entering the game. Holding his left knee. Screaming in pain. Bad news.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Maurice Watson just limped onto the court. Tough kid.

Scary moment for Creighton's Maurice Watson Jr., who was carried off the court with a left leg injury. Trainers icing his left knee now. He's in a lot of pain. Would be huge loss for the Bluejays.

Xavier fights back but loses to Butler. Worse, Edmond Sumner leaves game after re injuring his shoulder. Big East excellence at top continues.
