    PITTSBURGH -- Tu Holloway had 20 points and Dante Jackson tied a career-high with 19 as Xavier beat Duquesne 71-63 on Sunday in a game with first place in the Atlantic 10 Conference on the line.

    Jackson, a senior guard, made 7 of 9 field goals, including four 3-pointers, to help Xavier overcome a slow start by leading scorer Holloway and the fact second-leading scorer Mark Lyons fouled out with 11 1/2 minutes to play.

    The Musketeers (18-6, 9-1), who controlled the final 11 minutes of the game, have won 10 of 11 and put themselves in good position to win their fifth consecutive regular-season Atlantic 10 Championship.

    B.J. Monteiro had 17 points for Duquesne (16-7, 8-2), which has lost two consecutive games after a school-record 8-0 start in conference play.
