Offensive Outburst Leads X Past Georgetown
Xavier regained its offensive mojo Saturday at Cintas outscoring Georgetown 95-82-improving to 16-4 overall and retaining 1st place in BIG EAST at 8-1. Marquette kept pace-a half game back(8-2) w/ a 74-53 pounding of Seton Hall at the Rock and PC stayed one game back(7-2) w/ a 75-64 victory over DePaul. Wednesday's 73-72 Muskie loss at DePaul might seemed like it's fading in the rear view mirror bu Sean Miller is far from a happy camper. G-town PG Primo Spears dropped 37 points on XU-scoring off the dribble at will-triggering 31 shots and adding 11 assists. He more than made up for the absence of Hoya's #2 scorer Brandon Murray(shoulder and leg injuries).

X Drops Falls to DePaul in First BIG EAST Loss of Season
Brutal Night for the Muskies in Chicago!! Maybe life on the road in the BIG EAST? Whatever it was, I'd like to forget it. Xavier loses 73-72 to DePaul. Thanks to my intrepid cable provider Alta Fiber, I had to leave home to watch the game. They had 12 hours to repair the FS1 feed and failed miserably. Luckily, Bucketheads in Green Township has copious TVS and a good salmon salad. XU roared out of the gate 7-0 vs DU and led 13-8 at the 1st media time-out. That ends the good news. Give DU some credit, I guess? They got decent PG play from new guy Caleb Murphy(1st game back from wrist surgery). That freed up Umoja Gibson to play off the ball and he burned X for 17 points in 1st half and 22 on the game. Javan Johnson added 14 in half #1. Gibson and Johnson banged in 8 3 pointers between them(7 in 1st half). Muskies trailed 45-40 at the break-outscored 24 to 6 from "3".
