X-Men Get It Done In Overtime

Three-pointers saved Xavier. Missed free throws doomed West Virginia.

B.J. Raymond made two 3-pointers in the last 1:18 of overtime and the Musketeers advanced to the West Region final with a 79-75 victory over coach Bob Huggins' Mountaineers. Josh Duncan's 30 led the Musketeers.

Joe Alexander scored 18 and had 10 rebounds for the Mountaineers, who finish 26-and-11. West Virginia missed four of six free throws in overtime. Alexander missed one with 14.2 seconds left in regulation that would've given his team a 65-64 lead.

Third-seeded Xavier will try for its first Final Four appearance when it plays the winner of the UCLA-Western Kentucky game in the regional final on Saturday.
