Tu Holloway, Mark Lyons and Dezmine Wells were all unavailable for Xavier's tilt yesterday with Oral Roberts. Without the three starters, the Musketeers suffered an embarassing 64-42 loss to the Golden Eagles, their first of the season and their lowest point total in 11 years. The three starters were sidelined due to a brawl that took place in their game against rival Cincinnati. The return of star PG Holloway should help in Xavier's next game, but Lyons and Wells still will be sidelined as Xavier takes on scrappy Long Beach State on Thursday.

The Texas Longhorns had a solid home victory over tough Atlantic-10 opponent Temple, winning 77-65. Junior guard J'Covan Brown scored 23 points to lead the team and they got another solid performance out of freshman PG Myck Kabongo. The 6'1 lightning fast Canadian import was seen as one of the top PG's in last years HS Class, but struggled with turnovers and poor shooting to begin the season. In Texas' last few games, however, Kabongo has been living up to expectations as a talented floor general. He had 18 points as the Longhorns are now 8-2.

Virginia Beats Oregon at Matt Knight Arena

Despite taking a lead into the half, the Oregon Ducks could not hold off the Virginia Cavaliers as they lost, 67-54. The loss was indeed reminiscent of the Ducks loss to the Cavaliers last season in Virginia, though this time hurt a bit more being at home. Mike Scott continues his strong senior season for coach Tony Bennett's Cavs as he finished with a game high 17 points and 13 rebounds.
