Villanova ends Xavier's perfect season

More than a week after Xavier needed a 15-2 second half run to beat Wake Forest in the Skip Prosser Classic, the Musketeers fell for the first time this season, losing 95-64 in their Big East opener at No. 16 Villanova on Saturday.

Xavier had no answer for Villanova's sharp shooting early, led by senior Ryan Arcidiacono (27 points on 10-for-19 shooting, including seven 3-pointers).
