After upsetting the No. 2 seeded St. Louis on Saturday, 71-64, the Xavier Musketeers are having major problems with the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in Sunday's Atlantic-10 championship game. The Musketeers trail by 13, 37-24, after 20 minutes of play.
Despite getting a good half from guard Tu Holloway (11 points on 4-for-6 shooting) the Musketeers shot just 36-percent as a team and were an oh-for on three-point tries (0-for-7). On the other side, St. Bonaventure is shooting at a 48-percent clip from the field and 46-percent on threes (5-for-11).
The Bonnies are being led by their senior forward, who has led them all season; he has 12 points and five rebounds.
These two teams played during the regular season on January 14 and the Musketeers won by 13, so the Bonnies are issuing payback when it counts the most with an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament is on the line.
