Xavier Grabs 75-61 Road Win Over Providence: Recap

Xavier Grabs 75-61 Road Win Over Providence: Recap

Xavier won their second in row, having arguably their best half all season in the second half against Providence. Xavier started the game by feeding the post relentlessly, and it paid off as they got out to an early 6-5 lead with just over four minutes gone in the game. However, an 8-0 run by Providence gave them an 11-6 lead before a Ryan Welage three cut it to 11-9. Providence immediately answered with a three of their own, and led 14-9 with 11:56 left in the first half. Xavier made it a one-point game when Naji Marshall hit a shot in the lane, and the score was 19-18 Providence with...

Xavier wins, world seems better

Xavier wins, world seems better

Finally, the Musketeers and their fans wake up on the winning side. When I woke up this morning the sun was shining and birds were singing. That’s not allegorical, it’s the genuine truth. A February day in NE Ohio is going to approach 50 degrees, and my little girl who had a 102 degree fever last night woke up with nothing more than a stuffy nose. All of this because the Xavier Musketeers snapped a six game losing streak and won in exciting fashion.* A large portion of the Xavier fanbase and even some former players had questioned this current squad’s heart and hustle in the preceding...

Sunday Conversation is watching a tired team

Sunday Conversation is watching a tired team

Fatigue, bad defense, and a stagnant offense add up to losing to DePaul. Our weekly talk about the Musketeers starts out pessimistic and heads downhill from there. In that regard, it closely mirrors Xavier’s season. Brad: Grim. From here on out there are no games that Xavier should win. Last night, the team just collapsed, again, got basically nothing from non-rotation players, again, and turned the ball over way too much, again. It’s the same old things over and over and they aren’t getting better. This is a bad team. Joel: It’s sadly predictable. The top end talent is there to...

Xavier v. DePaul: Preview, matchups, keys to the game.

Xavier’s last best chance for a win. It says something about both programs that in this, the worst Xavier season in a long time, the Musketeers are still better than DePaul. If you are a believer in Ken Pomeroy and his data driven method for setting odds of winning, this is the last game Xavier can expect to win this year. That they can expect to win it at all speaks to just how moribund the Blue Demons program is. That’s not to say that DePaul is awful, because they aren’t, at least not compared to where they have been. The Blue Demons are 4-6 in the Big East and 115th nationally....

The Emergence of Paul Scruggs

The Emergence of Paul Scruggs

The star of this Xavier team has turned out to be its sophomore guard. Without looking, which Xavier player leads the Big East in minutes in conference play? It’s the same one who is 14th in assist rate and 13th in turnover rate over that span. If you looked at the title of this article, you know that player is Paul Scruggs. Scruggs was a nice player last year. He came on as the year progressed, eventually averaging 16.8 minutes for the first one seed in Xavier’s program history. Scrugss averaged 4.9/2.0/1.7 and showed little glimpses, 15 points against Providence, 11 against Florida...
