CINCINNATI (AP) - Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 26 points in Xavier's up-tempo offense, and Jason Love had his second straight double-double Saturday, leading the Musketeers to a 105-65 victory over Sacred Heart.

Crawford has emerged as Xavier (3-0) pushes the pace under first-year coach Chris Mack. The sophomore, who sat out last season after transferring from Indiana, has 50 points in the last two games.

Xavier has topped 100 points in consecutive games for the first time since 2007-08. It's the seventh set of back-to-back 100s in school history.

Love, the only senior on the team, had a career-high 15 rebounds and 14 points. Jamel McLean added a career-high 13 rebounds.

Sacred Heart (2-2) was led by Corey Hassan's (Merrimack, NH) 22 points, while senior Ryan Litke (Windsor, CT) had 12.

The loss was the second straight for the Pioneers, who head to Penn State to take on the Nittany Lions on Wednesday.
