Either Xavier or Creighton will reach the championship game of the Big East tournament in its first year in the conference.
Xavier's raucous home court almost made up for the absence of the Musketeers' starting center against No. 6 Villanova.
Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points and No. 6 Villanova clinched the outright Big East championship for the first time in 32 years by holding off Xavier 77-70 on Thursday night.
By the time No. 9 Creighton got into the game, it was too late. Xavier simply had more of everything in a long-awaited rematch.
With the best game of his career, Justin Martin helped Xavier get the better of a much-anticipated rematch.
Wichita State will carry its pursuit of perfection into the Missouri Valley tournament.
Georgetown (16-11, 7-8 Big East) snapped a two-game losing streak as Markel Starks had 22 points and four assists, guiding an efficient offense. The Hoyas shot 52 percent from the floor, had 14 assists and committed just three turnovers.
Looking for a spark with his team's NCAA Tournament hopes fading, Georgetown coach John Thompson inserted Jabril Trawick into the starting lineup for the first time in more than six weeks on Saturday.
Markel Starks scored 22 points and the Georgetown Hoyas avoided another second half letdown against Xavier with a much-needed 74-52 win.
Xavier point guard Dee Davis played well at both ends of the floor on Wednesday night, helping the Musketeers move back into sole possession of third place in the Big East Conference.
Xavier coach Chris Mack needed only one straightforward statistic to explain his team's loss at Marquette.
Semaj Christon waited for it.
Providence, one of the hottest teams in the Big East, won its fifth straight conference game for the first time in a decade on Saturday, defeating Xavier 81-72.
Semaj Christon was relentless in his attack, a blur as he blew past defenders, and Xavier looked like a team that had no interest in keeping this one close.
Xavier overcame a 17-point deficit in the final 15 minutes on Wednesday night to beat Georgetown 80-67 and remain unbeaten at home.
