Lexington: Furious Finish at Rupp

By - March 15, 2007

Back and forth here during the final stages.

Drew Lavender slashed into the lane and connected on a teardrop jumper at the 1:58 mark to tie the score at 73-73. Then Cummard turned the ball over for BYU and Lavender connected on another floater to give Xavier a 75-73 lead.

Cummard redeemed himself with a reverse lay-up that knotted the score again at 75 apiece. But Josh Duncan's driving lay-in at the 31.8 mark re-opened Xavier's two-point edge.

BYU was forced to foul when the Cougars couldn't come up with an equalizer and Lavender's two free throws sealed the victory.

More to come from the post-game pressers plus a full recap of the day in Lexington and a preview of tomorrow's action in Columbus. (Sleep when you're dead!)
