No. 23 Xavier beats Charlotte 68-48 for A-10 title

CINCINNATI (AP) - Senior guard Dante Jackson scored 18 points Wednesday night, and No. 23 Xavier beat Charlotte 68-48 to secure at least a share of its fifth straight Atlantic 10 regular-season title, tying the league record.

During its 16 seasons in the A-10, Xavier (23-6, 14-1) has won outright or shared nine regular-season titles and four tournament championships.

Jamel McLean had 11 points and 13 rebounds as Xavier's seniors took the lead on a night in their honor. Xavier completed its fifth straight undefeated A-10 season at home. The Musketeers have won a league-record 40 consecutive home games.

Derrio Green and Chris Braswell had 14 points each for Charlotte (10-19, 2-13), which gave the Musketeers their only league loss.
