Xavier Musketeers get smothered at home by Seton Hall, fall to 8-2

Xavier had a week to feel the sting of its first loss of the season and it led to an utterly rotten result for the Musketeers on Wednesday night in a lopsided 85-68 loss to Seton Hall at Cintas Center.

Head coach Travis Steele's opening statement to his post-game press conference depicted an accurate version of how the night went. 

"Seton Hall's a really good team but we got out-toughed right from the beginning," said Steele. "They were clearly the tougher, more physical team for 40 minutes. One can say, well first 13 minutes it was a tie ball game ... but we set the wrong tone. They dominated the glass. They drove the ball on us. They posted us. They dominated the paint. They bullied us on the defensive end as well, made our catches really tough, were physical on the ball. Didn't handle that well.
