It’s a first round match up in the Big East Tournament on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. The DePaul Blue Demons take on the Xavier Musketeers.
This is the third match up of the year between the two teams. Xavier won the first two match ups including the last game for both teams by a final score of 79-65.
DePaul Blue Demons
The DePaul Blue Demons have had a very disappointing season. Not many people had high expectations coming into the season for the Blue Demons but most expected them to be a little better than they have.
They come into this game with a 9-22 record and finished the regular season in 10th place in the Big East conference. They have lost three games in a row.
The Blue Demons don’t really have a huge weakness they just aren’t very good on either side of the ball. They average 69.1 points per game which is 274th in all of the country.
On the defensive side of the ball they give up 74.6 points per game which is 235th in all the country. For the Blue Demons to pull the upset they need to be sound on the defensive side of the ball.
The Xavier Musketeers are a team that people don’t really know if they are going to make the tournament. They started off the season strong and at one point were a top 10 team in the country.
But then their starting point guard Edmond Sumner went down with injury and they have really struggled since. So it will be interesting if the selection committee decides to take into consideration the injury, because if they don’t they might miss the tournament.
Xavier comes into this game with a 19-12 record and sit in 7th place in the Big East. They have lost six of their last seven games.
For Xavier to win this game they can’t overlook it. They know they probably need a few wins to make the tournament so they need to focus on just getting this one win first.
