Ed Cooley’s team has gotten off to an unfortunate start to Big East play, although not one devoid of hope.
Providence defeated Seton Hall; it failed to beat Creighton at home, which was disappointing but its other three losses (Villanova, at Georgetown, at Marquette) were all respectable and, to an extent, expected for a fairly young team that lost a lot of senior leadership from a year ago.
The Friars’ best win came out of conference, just before Christmas, at Texas, where they held UT to under 38 percent shooting and got 20 points out of Alpha Diallo, who leads the team with over 17 points per game.
What may be even more impressive about Diallo, though are his better than eight rebounds and three dimes per on the wing at 6’7″. He’s an underrated star in the conference.
Since the start of December, Xavier hasn’t won or lost more than two straight games. It has been up and down, winning by ten and losing by ten, generally dictated by where the game has been played. The Musketeers look like they are only going to be a great to most of the Big East when the game is played in Cincinnati.
The Musketeers lost by ten at Villanova on Friday. They only turned it over seven times and played pretty good offense but Villanova just played better, which is what it’s been doing a lot lately.
Naji Marshall and Paul Scruggs are a formidable duo and should be a little more than Diallo on their home floor.
