Xavier vs. Providence Live
Xavier reached a new height when it moved up to No. 3 in the latest Associated Press poll, and that was just the start of one of the biggest weeks in the school’s basketball history.The Musketeers (25-4, 13-3) would clinch a share of their first Big East title by beating Providence at the Cintas Center on Wednesday night, the final home game for Trevon Bluiett and three other senior regulars. They also would get even for one of their few losses.
There’s more. Xavier would win the title outright by beating the Friars (18-11, 9-7) and then knocking off DePaul on Saturday, finishing ahead of four-time champion Villanova.Winning a Big East title was one of Xavier’s top goals when it moved into the reconfigured conference, which ranks second in the RPI behind the Big 12. The closest they’ve come is second, while Villanova has won it each of the first four seasons.
Xavier had never been ranked higher than No. 5 in the AP poll until this season and has never won a Big East title. The Musketeers are in line for their first No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with a strong finish, a year after they reached the Elite Eight. The school record of 30 wins in a season also is within grasp.
