CINCINNATI (AP) -Jordan Crawford scored 15 of his career-high 24 points in the first half as Xavier's outside shooters took advantage of Bowling Green's zone defense, and the Musketeers showed their scoring balance while pulling away to a 101-57 victory on Tuesday night.
Xavier (2-0) shot 64.8 percent (35-for-54) from the field in its most lopsided victory in two years. It was the Musketeers' biggest offensive game since a 108-70 win over Virginia on Jan. 3, 2008.
Scott Thomas scored 13 points for Bowling Green (1-1), the Mid-American Conference's defending regular season champions.
Crawford sat out last season after transferring from Indiana. The sophomore guard has quickly emerged as the Musketeers' best all-around scoring threat, leading an offense that had five players in double figures each of the first two games.
