Three-pointers saved Xavier. Missed free throws doomed West Virginia. B.J. Raymond made two 3-pointers in the last 1:18 of overtime
and the Musketeers advanced to the West Region final with a 79-75
victory over coach Bob Huggins' Mountaineers. Josh Duncan's 30 led
the Musketeers.

Joe Alexander scored 18 and had 10 rebounds for the
Mountaineers, who finish 26-and-11. West Virginia missed four of
six free throws in overtime. Alexander missed one with 14.2 seconds
left in regulation that would've given his team a 65-64 lead.

Third-seeded Xavier will try for its first Final Four appearance
when it plays the winner of the UCLA-Western Kentucky game in the
regional final on Saturday.
