CINCINNATI -- Using its balance to full advantage, No. 10 Xavier made quick work of a team that had a tough time making it into town.
• The Musketeers won their ninth straight game and improved to 6-0 in the Atlantic 10, their best conference start since winning their first nine league games in the 2001-02 season.
• Xavier allowed the 49ers to hit just 30.9 percent of their shots, the 14th opponent in 20 games this season held under 40 percent shooting and the third-lowest field-goal percentage allowed by the Musketeers this season.
• Charlotte remained winless in six all-time meetings with Xavier.
• The 49ers fell to 0-4 in A-10 road games this season and have lost five straight road games overall.
