CINCINNATI (AP) -- Erving Walker scored 18 points, and Florida ended Xavier's 30-game home winning streak by beating the Musketeers 71-67 on Friday.
The Gators (10-3) broke open a back-and-forth game by going on a 13-1 run early in the second half, then holding on with 13-of-16 shooting from the free-throw line in the closing minutes.
Xavier (8-4) went more than two years without losing at the Cintas Center, the longest home-court winning streak in school history and the second-longest in Division I, trailing Kansas' 66-game streak. Twice this season, the Musketeers went overtime and kept it going.
Terrell Holloway scored 26 for Xavier, which went 10 minutes without a field goal in the second half, fell behind by 15 points and made a late rally but couldn't get closer than three.
