Fifth-Ranked Xavier continues to roll. The Musketeers won their tenth game in a row this week when they hosted Butler. JP Macura scored 15 points in the first half (and finished with 20) and Trevon Bluiett led the team with 21 points.
Xavier has only lost once all season — in Las Vegas against an Arizona State team that was just about to get red-hot and vault all the way up to #3 in the country. Tra Holder dropped 40 on the Musketeers in that one.
The scoring duo is clear for the X men but the supporting cast is strong, perhaps stronger than last year’s Elite Eight team. Six guys other than Macura and Bluiett have hit double-figures at least once in the last five games. It’s part of the reason why Xavier is the only team at 3–0 in the Big East.
Providence has dropped two Big East games in a row after winning its first one against St. John’s.
The Friars hosted Marquette on Wednesday and did enough to win most of the time. The only problem was that the Golden Eagles’ Markus Howard went off, tying the Big East scoring record with 52 points in the overtime victory.
Howard went 17-for-29, including 11-for-19 from three and 100 percent from the free throw line, to get his 52, ten of which came in overtime. He equaled former Friar Marshon Brooks’ record from several years back.
Four Friars were in double-figures, including Kyron Cartwright, who got 29 with 12 of his points coming from the free throw line.
