Xavier knocks off sixth-seeded Maryland, 76-65 - Mar 17, 2017

Trevon
Bluiett
Trevon Bluiett (6'6''-G-94) doesn't spend a lot of time worrying about missed shots because knows makes will eventually come. After missing his first seven shots and contributing only three points in the first half, Bluiett found his rhythm Thursday night to lead No.11-sedeed Xavier to a 76-65 upset of sixth-seeded Maryland in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Bluiett made six of seven shots from the field during the final 20 minutes to finish with 21 points. 'Once I get a couple to go in and get a rhythm going then everything starts to fall,' said Bluiett, the Musketeers' leading scorer. 'Everything you shoot just feels good.' Bluiett made four three-pointers in the second half to help Xavier come back from a six-point deficit. The Musketeers move on in the West Region, marking the third straight year they have advanced to the second round. Maryland, which started three freshmen for much the season, lost in the first round for the first time since 1997. Maryland came in favored after finishing second in the Big Ten during the regular season but the Terps seemed to be one of the more vulnerable No. 6 seeds in the tournament, primarily because of their youth. Maryland's young players struggled at times as Xavier shifted from zone to man-to-man. Kevin Huerter (6'7''-G-98) finished with 19 points but was just five of 13 from the field and star junior Melo Trimble couldn't find a rhythm against the Musketeers zone, going one for nine from three-point range to finish with 13 points, three assists and three turnovers. 'I just believe in my players,' said Xavier Coach Chris Mack . 'Maryland is really good against man-to-man offensively. We don't want Quentin Goodin (6'3''-G-97) to be chasing Melo Trimble all over the floor so zone is fairly effective at times.' Maryland Coach Mark Turgeon said his players had difficulty trying to beat Xavier's defense. The Terps went long stretches without making baskets and shot just 26% from three-point range, worse in the second half as Xavier played mostly zone. 'The changing defenses gave us more problems than anything tonight,' Turgeon said. 'I think they got hot and we kind of got rushed a little bit.' The Terps also had no answer for Xavier big man Sean O'Mara (6'10''-F/C-95),, who had a career night off the bench, forcing his way in the paint. O'Mara, who finished with 18 points on five-of-six shooting from the field while making eight of nine free throws, dominated as Bluiett struggled and kept the pressure on the Terps' two big men. 'My teammates got me the ball in great positions and pretty much all I had to do was throw up five foot hook shots and make a couple of back-to-the-basket moves to score,' O'Mara said. The Musketeers also got a huge contribution from Kaiser Gates off bench with 11 points. Xavier's bench outscored the Terprapins, 30-13, and outrebounded them 11-4 in a game that was fairly close throughout. 'When you get production like that with those two it just makes us that much tougher to defend,' Mack said.

Louisville fires athletic director Tom Jurich after scandal - 3 hours ago
Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich was fired with cause Wednesday, in a 10-3 vote by the school's board of trustees.
