Xavier kept the Big East on watch with a 74–62 win at Seton Hall.
Senior forward Tyrique Jones had a monster game. He shot nine-of-ten for nineteen points and eighteen rebounds, a career-high. It was Jones’ fourth double-double in a row and thirteenth on the season.
Jones doesn’t have the raw scoring ability of a Paul Scruggs or a Naji Marshall but he also shoots a much higher percentage.
Scruggs and Marshall have been slightly disappointing, only because of the tremendous expectations both had on them going into the season.
Scruggs is shooting .483 to get his 13.4 points per game. Marshall is shooting .443 for a team-high 16.8. The assists and turnovers are a problem, though. They are just about even for Scruggs and Marshall, the two guys in charge of carrying the offense.
When a team’s two best players are sloppy with the ball, it doesn’t set a good precedent. That’s what Xavier is dealing with. It has tons of talent but unless it realizes it, takes care of the ball, and gets hot, it won’t make the NCAA Tournament, which would be a shame.
DePaul Blue Demons
It might not be the only Big East team that played its way out of the Tournament in conference play.
DePaul has been dreadful in conference with just one win in nine games. It lost its fourth in a row on Saturday, 76–72, at Marquette.
Markus Howard dropped thirty-one points and four assists with just two turnovers. He didn’t shoot well and, in fact, Marquette shot just forty percent as a team compared to fifty for DePaul. The game was won at the free throw line, though.
Marquette shot almost three times as many free throws as DePaul and made eighty-two percent to DePaul’s fifty-two.
DePaul has lost eight times in the conference but only two of them were by double-digits. Like Xavier, the Blue Demons can play with anybody in the league.
Charlie Moore, the diminutive junior guard, who started his career at Cal and transferred to Kansas before eventually coming back home this year to Chicago. He had to sit out last season but he’s making up for it this year with over sixteen points per game and 6.6 assists.
