No. 21 Xavier eyes 4-0 start vs. visiting Missouri St.

It was the kind of game Xavier didn't always win last season.

Tuesday night's 63-58 overtime decision over Missouri was the type of game that often didn't go the Musketeers' way in 2018-19. With first-year coach Travis Steele learning about his players and vice versa, Xavier had trouble finishing off tight games against decent teams most of last season.

In winning eight of their last 11 games, the Musketeers finally learned how to close the deal. They beat NCAA or NIT teams in every victory, including a 12-point thumping of Big East champion Villanova. And they have carried that momentum into a new season, along with a No. 21 ranking in this week's Associated Press poll.
