Trevon Bluiett leads No. 6 Xavier over St. John's 90-83
CINCINNATI (AP) Trevon Bluiett had his fifth double-double of the season, and No. 6 Xavier overcame poor shooting and beat St. John's 90-83 on Wednesday night, the Red Storm's 13th straight loss.
Bluiett had 15 points and 13 rebounds as Xavier (20-2, 8-2 Big East) got its 20th win faster than any team in school history.
St. John's (7-16, 0-10) hasn't won since Dec. 13. The Red Storm's 13-game losing streak matches Delaware for the longest active one in Division I, according to STATS.
Bluiett was only 4 of 14 from the field, typical of Xavier's night. The Musketeers struggled to make shots consistently and led by no more than seven points until the closing minutes. Myles Davis scored all of his 16 points in the second half.
Felix Balamou had a career-high 20 for St. John's, which scored the second-most points against Xavier this season.
