CINCINNATI (AP) — Matt Stainbrook scored a season-high 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Xavier Musketeers rolled to a 68-53 non-conference win over Wake Forest on Saturday.

James Farr added 13 points and Semaj Christon finished with 12 for the Musketeers, who led by as many as 22 points while holding the Demon Deacons to their lowest point total of the season. Wake Forest set the previous low in a 59-51 win over North Carolina-Greensboro in its last game on December 21.

Codi Miller-McIntyre led the Demon Deacons with 11 points and Coron Williams added 10 — all in the first half.

Stainbrook's double-double was his third of the season. Before a crowd of 10,064, the Musketeers finished their non-conference schedule with a 10-3 record, their best since going 11-2 in the 2008-2009 season.
