DePaul was done no favours getting the top two teams in the league to start Big East play.
Xavier looks like the only team that can push Villanova for the title and now that they are in conference play I think we will see them dominate in games like this.
DePaul Blue Demons
DePaul took on Villanova in their conference opener. It was a predictable outcome with the Blue Demons losing by 18 at home. This spot is even tougher.
Max Strus has burst onto the scene in his first season. The athletic wing is averaging 17ppg and already has 6 games with 20 or more points this season.
Transfer Marin Maric is a rare center in this day and age. He plays close to the basket and converts a high percentage of shots. He is not much of a rim protector though.
Eli Cain gives the Blue Demons a potential mismatch at the point guard position with his size but his shooting has been terrible this season – 36% from the floor overall.
Xavier started Big East play with a close win at Marquette. They covered as three point favourites and have won eight in a row since their lone loss.
In the win they scored 91 points and had five in double figures led by star Trevon Blueitt who had 23. He also led in rebounds and assists which is not normally the case.
JP Macura is the only other player who averages in double figures but four others score 8 or 9 points per game. Xavier has both a star and depth.
Not that I expect this game to be all that close but it bears noting that Xavier is the top free throw shooting team in the country.
