CINCINNATI (AP) - Justin Martin scored 16 points and set the tone with several gritty plays on Wednesday night, sparking Xavier to a 79-66 victory over Fordham and keeping the Musketeers unbeaten at home in Atlantic 10 play.
Semaj Christon scored 19 points, and Xavier (14-9, 7-3) had five players in double figures while remaining perfect at home in A-10 games. Xavier is 52-1 in A-10 games at the Cintas Center since the 2007-08 season.
The Musketeers have won their last 11 games against the Rams (6-19, 2-8), and lead the series 23-3.
Mandell Thomas scored 23 points for Fordham, which has lost five in a row and eight of its last nine games while missing one of its top players.
The Rams played their seventh straight game without senior forward Chris Gaston, an A-10 preseason first-team choice. He's been bothered by an injured knee.
