Harris leads No. 6 Xavier over GW 67-41

Amber Harris scored 23 points, and No. 6 Xavier completed another perfect Atlantic 10 season at home by beating George Washington 67-41 on Wednesday night, setting up a first-place showdown with co-leader Temple.

The Musketeers (24-2, 13-0) won their 30th consecutive A-10 game. They play at Temple on Sunday for the regular-season championship. The Owls beat Saint Joseph's 52-49 to improve to 13-0 in the conference.

Harris, who returned for another season rather than turn pro, repeatedly made pull-up jumpers over a defense geared to take away the inside. She also had 10 rebounds as part of her 15th double-double. Tyeasha Moss added 12 points, going 4 of 8 from behind the 3-point arc.

Tiana Myers had 11 points for George Washington (8-19, 3-10), which was down to seven healthy players. Leading scorer Danni Jackson (10.3 points) suffered a concussion in the Colonials' last game and didn't play.
