No. 7 Creighton rallies for 72-67 win over No. 22 Xavier

CINCINNATI (AP) ��� Cole Huff got a pivotal rebound and made a pair of free throws with 16.7 seconds left, and No. 7 Creighton wasted an 11-point lead before rallying for a 72-67 win over Xavier on Monday that gave the Bluejays the best start in their history.

Creighton (18-1, 5-1 Big East) scored the final six points after Xavier (13-5, 3-3) pulled ahead 67-66. The Bluejays have won five straight since an 80-70 home loss to No. 1 Villanova on Dec. 31.

Creighton suffered a significant setback when point guard Maurice Watson Jr. - the national leader with 8.8 assists per game - hurt his left knee when he hit the court hard after scoring on a layup in the first half. He was on crutches for the second half.
