Xavier had a bit of a scare over the weekend and needed overtime to put away a feisty Georgetown team. The Hoyas are a bottom-feeder in the Big East and Xavier was at home but a win is a win.
Trevon Bluiett scored a season-high 31 points and hit a four-point play at the end of regulation that sent it to overtime. The Musketeers looked vulnerable and if they play the same way at Hinkle Fieldhouse, they’ll lose.
No team ahead of Xavier in the rankings lost this week so the Musketeers will likely stay at #6 when Monday’s poll is released.
If the X-Men can get through two tough road games this week at Butler and at Creighton they have a monster week next week with home tilts with Seton Hall and Villanova. If they sweep through these next two weeks, they’ll be on the inside track to a one-seed.
Butler was a big-time mover last week, routing Marquette in Wisconsin and then beating up on DePaul at Hinkle.
It won those two games by a combined 43 points, has won the last three by 68 and the last four overall.
Kelan Martin is fantastic. He’s up to nearly 20 points per game after scoring 26 over the weekend. Sophomore Kamar Baldwin has emerged as the clear second option behind Martin at 15 points per game.
This is a big one because the Bulldogs go to Villanova this weekend upcoming and nobody has had any luck there. Of course, Butler was the one team to beat Villanova earlier this season when it hosted.
The schedule is favorable down the stretch before the Big East Tournament. Currently, Butler is 7–4, ahead of Seton Hall, Marquette and Providence, in fourth place in the conference.
