WASHINGTON (AP) - Romain Sato scored 23 points to lead Xavier in a 71-63 Atlantic 10 victory over George Washington on Thursday.
Chris Monroe led George Washington with 32 points.
The Musketeers (12-3, 4-0) won their seventh straight despite a below-average performance from leading scorer David West. The 6-9 forward was limited to just two points in the first half and finished with 12 before fouling out with 4:36 remaining.
Xavier scored the first 10 points of the game and never trailed. George Washington (10-6, 3-2) struggled all night from the field and shot just 35 percent. The Colonials were never able to cut the Musketeers' lead below six points.
Xavier looked most vulnerable when West was called for his fifth foul after charging into Jaason Smith of the Colonials. However, the Musketeers responded by scoring a 3-pointer from Sato and a baseline jump shot from Kevin Frey to maintain a safe lead.
Frey finished the game with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
Xavier led at the half, 33-25, despite committing 12 of its season-high 22
turnovers in the first half. The Musketeers entered the game averaging only 13
turnovers a game.
