Charlotte falls to Xavier in day's second A-10 upset

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Josh Duncan broke a tie with a pair of free throws and Stanley Burrell added three more down the stretch as Xavier upset Charlotte 59-55 on Thursday in the Atlantic 10 tournament quarterfinals.

Justin Doellman led the 10th-seeded Musketeers with 14 points. Justin Cage scored 13 and Burrell added 10 for Xavier (19-10).

Leemire Goldwire scored 15 of his game-high 19 points in the second half for second-seeded Charlotte (18-13). De'Angelo Alexander added 12 for the 49ers.

Goldwire scored eight straight points for the 49ers to give Charlotte a 50-49 lead with 3:59 left in the game. That capped a 14-5 Charlotte run and wiped out Xavier's largest lead, 44-36, which the Musketeers had reached on Cage's 3-pointer with 10:04 left.

Charlotte shot 7-for-28 on 3-pointers and 10-for-18 from the foul line.

Xavier will play Fordham in Friday's semifinals.
