Tra Holder scored 40 points and Xavier couldn’t stop Arizona State’s unorthodox line-up, suffering their first loss of the season in the championship of the Continental Tires Las Vegas Invitational.

Holder made 14 of 22 shots, including five three-pointers, as the Sun Devils outscored Xavier by 18 points in the second half to win 102-86.

Arizona State played a three-guard line-up, and sometimes four, and were able to break down Xavier’s defense with dribble penetration and outside shots. The Sun Devils made thirteen three-pointers for the game.

J.P. Macura led Xavier with 23 points. Trevon Bluiett was held under 20 points for the first time this season – he finished with 11.

The loss drops Xavier to 5-1 on the season. XU returns to Cintas Center Tuesday night for a game against Baylor.
