Xavier overcomes mistakes in 72-61 DePaul win - Feb 9, 2017

Chris Mack
It was hardly a masterpiece, but Xavier did the job against visiting DePaul University. The No. 24/25 Musketeers (18-6, 8-3 Big East) pushed through an error-laden performance to beat the visiting Blue Demons (8-16, 1-10), 72-61, Wednesday night at Cintas Center. It was an unrefined performance, if not uneventful, but it was more than enough against the Big East Conference's last-placed team. For Xavier, the victory sets up a Saturday clash with national implications as No. 2-ranked Villanova comes to Cintas Center. A win would pull the Musketeers, currently the Big East's No. 2 team, into first-place in the league. Xavier had a talented but struggling Blue Demons side to contend with before it could turn to the hyped, nationally-televised Villanova game, though. The Musketeers tied for a season-high 19 turnovers and DePaul scored 19 points from those, which made the final margin closer than necessary. The Cintas crowd of 10,250 grew restless at times as DePaul hung around well into the second half. "It wasn't pretty," Xavier head coach Chris Mack said afterward. "Give DePaul credit. They changed defenses. They changed the way they did things, both in man and in zone (defenses). But we still have to be better with the ball... All in all, really, really happy anytime you can win in this league." DePaul guard Brandon Cyrus (6'5''-G-97) scored a team-high 18 points. Billy Garrett added 12 and Eli Cain, a player Mack hailed as one of the best guards in the Big East, had 15 points. A well-rounded offensive attack that included 20 assists on 26 field goals allowed the hosts to out-gun the visitors and overshadow their own shortcomings in the contest. Junior guard Trevon Bluiett (6'6''-G-94) continued the best stretch of his Xavier career with a workmanlike, game-high 20 points on 8 of 18 shooting. He also added seven rebounds. Junior guard J.P. Macura (6'5''-G-95) scored 13 points and senior forward Rashid Gaston (6'9''-F-94) tallied 14 points on 6 of 8 from field, the most the transfer has scored in a Xavier uniform. Sophomore Kaiser Gates (6'8''-F-96) scored just three points but went for a career and game-high 10 rebounds. That sum brought his rebounding total to 36 over Xavier's current four-game winning streak. "I think he's really focused in on that," Mack said of Gates' rebounding. "That's a statistic you're allowed to be greedy in. Nobody's gonna get upset if you're grabbing too many rebounds." Xavier tired down the stretch, but put the game away early enough that it was able to coast to victory over the final four minutes. A 9-0 run stretched the Musketeers' lead to 55-42 at the 9:17 mark of the period. By about the four-minute mark, the lead stretched to what was at that point a game-high 14 points. DePaul was gassed at that point, and had nearly as many self-inflicted wounds as Xavier with 17 turnovers. Freshman forward Tyrique Jones did some damage during that defining stretch halfway through the second half, finishing a tap-in off an inbounds pass from freshman guard Quentin Goodin (6'3''-G-97) at the 10:31 mark. About 90 second later, Jones added two free-throws. He finished with eight points on 3 of 4 shooting. Jones is now 11 of 12 from the field over the last two games after a perfect, 8 of 8 performance at Creighton on Saturday. Jones' contribution helped added to another noticeable outing from the Musketeers' front court platoon. That position group has provided a lift during the winning streak after up-and-down play earlier in the season. " (Mack) just wants us to play well. I don't think he really cares who starts. I don't think we really care who starts," Gaston said of the recent front court play. "He just wants us to play well as a unit. Obviously, we have to step up with the loss of Ed (Sumner), he's just putting the onus on us." Goodin was relieved of point guard duties around the time Xavier started the 9-0 run. During that stretch, Macura ran the point for the hosts. "I have a freshman point guard going against DePaul's all-time leading free-throw shooter," Mack said of Goodin's night, which included a career-high eight assists and five points on 2 of 6 shooting. " (Goodin) still managed to play almost 30 minutes. He was in a little bit of foul trouble but, you know, we'll take it," Mack said. Xavier tied the season-high mark for turnovers late in the game but with victory in-hand, although it allowed the Blue Demons to make the scoreline more respectable down the stretch. "We're not going to be perfect from here on out," Mack said. "We do have to be better with the basketball. Nineteen turnovers, especially at home, is way too many... We got to get our battery recharged. I'm sure our focus will be there (Saturday) because we're playing the best team, or one of the best teams in the country, and certainly the best team in our league over however many years we've been in it."

Louisville fires athletic director Tom Jurich after scandal - 2 days ago
