The Monday afternoon game will kick off the Maui Invitational. The first game of the day will feature the Auburn Tigers out of the SEC and the Xavier Musketeers out of the Big East.
This game will be the fifth meeting all-time between the Tigers and the Musketeers. Xavier leads the series three games to one, with their last win over Auburn coming in 2015.
The Tigers have started the season strong, winning their first three games by an average margin of 38.7 points. Their best win so far came against the ranked Washington Huskies. They now find themselves sitting at ninth in the country, with a chance to pick up wins over several quality teams if they go far in this preseason tournament.
Because of their blowout wins, the Tigers are averaging 97.3 points per game. As a team they have six players averaging at least eleven points per game, so they have done a magnificent job to balance their scoring. Another standout stat is they are averaging 47.3 rebounds per game. If they can dominate the boards, they will get past the first round with not much issue.
While it is true two of the three opponents that Auburn has faced stood no chance, they did play very good defense against a ranked Washington team. Overall they are allowing their opponent to shoot 38.2% and will need to continue this trend if they are going to remain undefeated.
Xavier won their first two games, however they were not as dominate as they should have been. This showed when they lost to the Wisconsin Badgers in their third game 68-77. Look for the Musketeers to step up their game when they face a ranked Auburn team.
The Musketeers are shooting the ball incredibly well to start the season. As a team they shoot 48.1% from the field. However, their three point percentage dips dramatically down to 32%. To win this game, the Musketeers will likely need to find their shot from deep range to keep up with the Tigers’ offense.
The main issue for the Musketeers has been their ability to close out shooters. they allow opponents to shoot 44.1% from the field and 46.1% from beyond the three point line. They will certainly need to hold Auburn below these numbers if they are going to win this game.
