(Neb.)- Xavier Advances To Big East Semis, Beats Creighton 63-61
NEW YORK (AP) — Zach Hankins scored 22 points, including the go-ahead tip-in with 21 seconds left, and Kyle Castlin blocked Creighton's last shot in the closing seconds to give Xavier a 63-61 victory Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Big East Tournament.
After Ty-Shon Alexander's jumper tied it for fifth-seeded Creighton at 61 with 51 seconds left, Hankins tapped in a third-chance shot for Xavier to take a two-point lead. That set up Creighton to take the last shot, and Castlin got a hand on Alexander's 3 with four seconds left.
Alexander led the Bluejays with 21 points and Martin Krampelj added 14.
