INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - J.P Macura scored 13 points while Remy Abell and Edmond Sumner had 12 each to lead No. 5 Xavier to a 74-57 rout over Butler on Saturday.
The Musketeers (22-3, 10-3) won for the sixth time in seven games and retained sole possession of second place in the Big East.
Butler (17-8, 6-7) was led by Kelan Martin with 15 points and Andrew Chrabascz added 11 as its three-game winning streak ended.
Xavier rebounded from shooting a season-low 30 percent in Tuesday's loss at Creighton by making 56.9 percent on the road.
After trailing 21-13 midway through the first half, the Musketeers turned the game with four 3-pointers and a three-point play in a 27-6 run that gave them a 40-27 lead.
Butler cut the deficit to 47-39 early in the second half - which later became a seven-point deficit after a replay review gave Kellen Dunham a 3.
The Bulldogs couldn't get closer.
