Xavier Loses Again: Box Score of the Day

    
February 20th, 2009

Box Score of the Day:

Today's pick is.. Charlotte's upset win over #17 Xavier.

 

For the third time in a row Xavier lost on the road, this time to 10-15 Charlotte. The recent struggles started after an 11 game winning streak that saw the Musketeers move into the Top 10, and now their in danger in falling out of the Top 20. What's happened? There are a couple of trends in the three losses.

 

Turnovers - In each of the three loses, Xavier had between 14-15 turnovers.

Lack of assists - Xavier hit a low with just 7 assists in tonight's loss, and has had a negative a/to ratio in the losses.

Poor FG% - They've shot under 45% in each of the losses.

Poor 3-Pt% - BJ Raymond did get hot in the close Duquesne defeat, but they've hovered around 25% against UD & Charlotte.

Lack of steals - In the three games, they've combined for just 9 steals total.

 

What does all this mean? It means that Xavier's point guard deficiencies, which they somehow managed to skirt by early in the year are finally catching up. Defensively, they've still been solid, and they don't get outplayed on the boards, but ultimately you're not going to go far if you turn the ball over and don't hit shots.
