No. 23 Xavier 68, Charlotte 48: Senior guard Dante Jackson scored 18 points, and the host Musketeers (23-6, 14-1 Atlantic 10) secured at least a share of their fifth straight regular-season title, tying the league record.
During its 16 seasons in the A-10, Xavier has won outright or shared nine regular-season titles and four tournament championships.
Charlotte (10-19, 2-13) was the only team to hand Xavier a league loss this season, 66-62 on Feb. 2.

North Carolina took the lead midway through the second half and was up 67-60 on Kendall Marshall's three-pointer with 3:59 left. Florida State rallied to take a 70-69 lead with 18 seconds left on two free throws by Derwin Kitchen, who led the Seminoles (20-9, 10-5) with 13 points.
The Tar Heels can clinch the top seed in next week's ACC Tournament with a win over No. 4 Duke on Saturday.
Brigham Young: School officials confirmed starting forward Brandon Davies wasn't involved in anything criminal that resulted in his dismissal from the team.
University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said an honor code review is under way to determine whether the BYU sophomore will be allowed to remain in school, as well as his status with the team next season.
BYU's honor code requires students to live a chaste and virtuous life, be honest, abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse, and attend church regularly.
Kansas: Point guard Tyshawn Taylor's suspension has been lifted after two games.
The junior was in uniform Wednesday night when the second-ranked Jayhawks played host to No. 24 Texas A&M in their final home game of the season.
Iowa State: Coach Fred Hoiberg added to an impressive list of transfers, announcing that former Michigan State guard Korie Lucious will join the Cyclones.
Iowa State said Lucious, a junior point guard who was suspended by Spartans Coach Tom Izzo earlier this season for conduct detrimental to the program, had signed a financial aid agreement with the school.
Lucious will redshirt next year and use his final year of eligibility in 2012-13.
Lucious, who hails from Milwaukee, helped the Spartans reach the Final Four the past two seasons. He averaged 6.5 points and just over four assists in 18 games this year before butting heads with Izzo.
Lucious averaged 9.2 points in five games during the 2010 NCAA tournament and played in 11 tourney games overall. That kind of postseason experience will be welcomed at Iowa State, which hasn't made the NCAAs since 2005.
Thomas More: Senior shooting guard Aaron Miller of Henry Clay High School was named to the All-Presidents' Athletic Conference first team.

Kansas State 71, No. 5 Texas A&M 67: Brittany Chambers scored 35 points, including seven three-pointers, to lift host Kansas State in an upset.
