    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Stanley Burrell scored 11 of his 17 points during a 17-4 Xavier run midway through the second half, leading the Musketeers to a 63-51 win over Richmond on Wednesday night.

    The Spiders took their last lead of the game, 37-36, on Peter Thomas' layup with 14:19 remaining. A jumper by Justin Cage gave the Musketeers a 38-37 lead with 14:07 left to go and ignited the 17-4 run, which ended on Burrell's layup to put Xavier ahead 53-41. The Spiders could get no closer than nine the rest of the way.

    After Richmond (11-11, 4-5 Atlantic 10 Conference) scored the first seven points of the game, Xavier had a 19-9 run to take a 19-16 lead with 8:05 remaining in the first half. Richmond came back to take a 28-27 halftime lead. The first half had seven ties and 10 lead changes.

    Xavier (14-6, 5-4) was led by Brian Thornton's 20 points. Cage added 10.

    Oumar Sylla led the Spiders with 12 points and Gaston Moliva added 10.

    The Musketeers hit 14 of 23 field goal attempts in the second half while holding Richmond to 6 of 19. They outrebounded the Spiders by nine in the second half.
