CINCINNATI (Ticker) -- David West was scoreless in the second half of Xavier's last game and had nearly the same impact in this one.
Jeff Myers scored 18 points and Richmond took advantage of a quiet night by West to end the 22nd-ranked Musketeers' 17-game home winning streak with a 67-59 victory in the Atlantic 10 Conference opener for both schools.
West did not score in the final 20 minutes of Saturday's 65-58 loss at Alabama and fouled out with 10 points in this one. He made two free throws with 4:35 left to give Xavier (9-4) a 56-52 lead, but those were his final points of the game.
"They took me out of my game early," West said. "If I don't play well, we're not going to win. Coach kept calling my number, but I just couldn't get it going."
A follow shot by freshman Jermaine Bucknor started an 11-0 run by Richmond (7-5). Jamaal Scott split a pair from the line and made a layup with 2:20 left to give the Spiders a 57-56 advantage.
Bucknor forced a steal near half-court and fed Tony Dobbins for a 59-56 lead. After the Musketeers committed another turnover, Eric Zwayer hit 1-of-2 at the line for a four-point cushion.
Xavier went to West, who had his shot blocked and committed a foul. He also was hit with a technical and Richmond made 3-of-4 at the line to complete its spurt and make it 63-56 with 49 seconds to go.
"I'm proud of our kids," Richmond coach Jerry Wainwright said. "I think we hung in there. It's a big win for our program."
Richmond avenged a pair of losses to Xavier last season, including a 73-60 defeat in the championship game of the Atlantic 10 tournament.
Romain Sato scored 15 of his 20 points in the first half for Xavier, but West was plagued by fouls and poor shooting throughout. He made just 3-of-15 shots and threw a towel in frustration after picking up his second foul with six minutes to go in the first half.
Scott was the only other Spider in double figures with 11 points off the bench. Richmond did it with defense, limiting Xavier to a paltry 21 percent (8-of-28) from the floor in the second half.
The Musketeers had just one basket in the final nine minutes of the game.
This was Xavier's second straight game with Keith Jackson starting in place of point guard Lionel Chalmers, who is out up to six weeks with a broken foot. Jackson fouled out with eight points and four assists.
"A major factor in this game was Lionel Chalmers," Wainwright said. "Certainly, the wear and tear of the number of minutes that the Xavier kids had to play (was a factor)."
Xavier scored the final six points of the first half for a 37-28 advantage. The Musketeers got a 3-pointer by Dedrick Finn and a basket by Anthony Myles for a 42-28 lead with 19 minutes to go.
"I thought we were in good shape up nine at the half with David having sat the last (six) minutes of the half," Musketeers coach Thad Matta said. "For whatever reason, we did not play good basketball."
The Spiders patiently fought back and used a 15-4 burst to get within 48-47 on a 3-pointer by Myers with just over 12 minutes remaining. Myers had two of his five 3-pointers in the run.
"We stopped playing defense," West said. "They just came in here and beat us."
West led all players with 18 rebounds as Xavier held a 48-37 edge on the glass.
