Xavier is ranked number six in the national poll. KenPom is a little cooler on the Musketeers, who come in at number 16. They have the sixth-most efficient offense, though.
Trevon Blueitt and JP Macura are the two stars of this team. They led last year’s team to the Elite Eight and the Xavier fans have a mind they’ll do it again this season. They average 32 between the two of them and do it on high efficiency.
After those two, the scoring is equal and balanced. Three guys get between nine and ten points per game and another three get between seven and eight.
Xavier beat a feisty Northern Iowa team in Cedar Falls the last time it was in action. Two wins against ranked opponents have the resume looking substantial before the Big East begins too. Had the Musketeers not lost to Arizona State, they would likely be 1-2 with Villanova.
Marquette Golden Eagles
Marquette storms into Big East play having won seven of its last eight. The Golden Eagles dropped two early games to Purdue and Wichita State before handling business from there.
This is a top-50 KenPom team and one of the most explosive offenses in the country. It isn’t always efficient, which is why it’s just number 15 according to KenPom, but it can score points in barrels when the three-ball is dropping.
Two guys, Markus Howard and Andrew Rowsey, average over 20 a game. Sam Hauser gets over 15 and scored 29 in his team’s last game — a blowout win over American.
Hauser shoots nearly 50 percent from three. Rowsey shoots about 44 and Howard 40. The team averages 40 percent as a unit.

Free Xavier Musketeers vs. Marquette Golden Eagles NCAAB Prediction: Marquette opens conference play with the upset.
I imagine Xavier will get some play just -4 at an unranked opponent. That’s the power of the little number next to your name. But the Musketeers win by outscoring you and I’m not sure that’s apt to work in Marquette’s gym.
