The Xavier Musketeers will travel to Hinkle Fieldhouse for a Big East clash against the Butler Bulldogs. This game should come down to the wire, as these teams are very evenly matched. Xavier scores 76.5 points per game and gives up 67.3 points per game, while Butler scores 76.9 points per game and surrenders 65.5 points per game.
On Monday, Xavier (13-3, 3-1 Big East) was ranked #15 in the AP Poll, but they will probably drop a couple of spots after getting blown out on the road against #3 Villanova. The Wildcats routed the Musketeers, cruising to a 79-54 victory on Tuesday.
The #12 ranked Bulldogs (14-3, 3-2 Big East) are likely to suffer a similar fate in the polls, as they were also beaten by a damn good team on the road in their most recent game. On Tuesday, #8 Creighton pulled out a 75-64 win over Butler.
The big difference in Saturday’s game might be Butler’s home court advantage. The Bulldogs are undefeated at home this season and have won their last 15 games at Hinkle Fieldhouse, but fittingly enough, their last home loss was to Xavier. The Musketeers beat Butler 74-57 on Saturday, February 13, 2016, which was the last time these two teams faced each other.
