St. John's shooting 32% compared to 30% for Georgetown and down 4 with 13 left in the 2nd. This is some brutal BE basketball. For people claiming to be higher and mightier than the Valley, this shows there's bad basketball in the BE too. These teams look to both be a couple years away from being ready.

Hoyas have 18 turnovers and have been blocked 8 times. And they are winning! Ugh.

Hard to believe that St. John's went from a really solid non-con team to losing back-to-back home games against Georgetown and DePaul, probably the only two home games they SHOULD win.

Rooting for Xavier tonight. Will make the Saturday game better and put a little space between us n Nova.

Looking really horrendous for Xavier right now. Just getting worked in every aspect of this game. Hopefully we have a better showing out in Philly later this year.

The whole thing with Lovett has been more than a little strange!

Xavier should have just "mailed it in". They were seemingly preoccupied by other things, lacked focus, and were apparently disinterested in competing in this game. Bluiett didn't take a shot until approx 8:32 in the 1st half. X suddenly realized they were in a game at the 30 minute mark and began to play. They are a much better team than they displayed yesterday, but didn't pass the top 10 "eye test" last night. One of their fans on HLOH says they may be having team problems? Regardless, I had hoped they would compete and win last night...to set up a Big Game on Saturday for sole possession of 1st place. Oh well - that's not happening.

Unless their "problems" are great I expect them to play like gangbusters against the Jays.

Quite similar to X’s performance last season at Nova.

UCLA got a nice RPI win last night against Utah. They could really finish top two in the Pac-12.
