    RICHMOND, Va. -- Kendall Anthony led five Richmond players in double figures with 16 points to beat Xavier 73-71 Saturday night in an Atlantic 10 Conference showdown.

    Alonzo Nelson-Ododa and Darien Brothers scored 13 points apiece, Cedrick Lindsay added 12 and Greg Robbins had 10 for Richmond (14-9, 4-4).

    It was a tightly contested match consisting of 15 lead changes, nine ties and neither team having more than a single-digit advantage in the second half.

    Lindsay made two free throws for Richmond to cut its deficit to 59-58 with 4:14 left and then Robbins' 3-pointer at the 3:30 mark put the Spiders ahead for good.

    Xavier (12-9, 5-3) cut the lead to one, 68-67, behind Dee Davis' 3-pointer with 10 seconds left, but Richmond made 5 of 6 free throws the rest of the way to hold off the Musketeers.

    Travis Taylor led Xavier with 24 points and eight rebounds.
