CINCINNATI (AP) -Josh Duncan scored 16 points, and five Xavier players reached double figures Saturday night in a 90-59 victory over Southeast Missouri State.
The game was part of the Chicago Invitational Challenge, played at local sites for the first two rounds.
Xavier (1-0) opened with a 10-point run and led by as many as 22 in the first half. Duncan led the way, going 6-for-7 from the field overall. The senior forward also had eight rebounds and blocked a pair of shots.
Duncan missed three games last season with a sprained ankle and was hobbled after his return.
Derrick Brown made his first career start and added 15 points, and B.J. Raymond had 15 off the bench. Stanley Burrell added 14 points, and C.J. Anderson scored 13. Point guard Drew Lavender had nine points and five assists in 26 minutes.
Southeast Missouri State (0-1), which was picked to finish fifth in the Ohio Valley Conference, was led by Roderick Pearson's 13 points.
Xavier dominated in rebounds 54-36 and forced 20 turnovers, leading to easy baskets.
The Musketeers held a moment of silence before the game for former coach Skip Prosser, who died in July of an apparent heart attack. Prosser was an assistant to Pete Gillen before becoming Xavier's head coach for seven seasons. He left for Wake Forest after the 2000-01 season.
Prosser maintained a home in Cincinnati after he left Xavier. A memorial service was held at Xavier's Cintas Center in August, and he was buried in Cincinnati.
