TREVON. IS. BACK.

Guess who’s back, back again?! Tre’s back…tell a friend.

We waited for a VERY long time, but as they say, patience is a virtue:

THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS. Trevon Bluiett is coming back for his final year at Xavier. After the interview he gave on Monday, it sounded like he was leaving. He said he felt confident that if he stayed in the draft he would be picked in the second round, and that he was using his workout with the Knicks on Wednesday to help him affirm his decision. This was an all-time troll move from Tre, but who cares. HE’S BACK.
We get ANOTHER season of Tre cookin up the Big East. He gets to play in another Shootout at home. Remember the 40 points he scored last time he played UC? He gets another shot at the NCAA tournament. Come on…we could have even more Musketeer Moments???

MOMENTS LIKE THIS ONE:

AND THIS ONE:

So you’re telling me we have Trevon, JP, Kaiser, Sean, Quentin, and Tyrique to go along with Paul Scruggs, Naji Marshall, Jared Ridder, Elias Harden, Big K, AND Karem Kanter?? FEED ME WINS.

Seriously though, the bar just got raised in the Big East. A potential Big East Player of the Year candidate, Trevon is bringing so much to the table. He will start next year ranked 15th on the all-time scoring list with 1,585 career points. He made the first team All Big East team for the second year in a row, the All-Big East Tournament team this year, and he made the All-West Regional team after leading the Muskies to the Elite 8. The ceiling is the roof for Xavier.

Before the Arizona game, Tre wrote the article below. Now he has a chance to finish his Xavier career in style, and possibly as one of the greatest Musketeers to have ever worn a Xavier uniform. 151 days until Musketeer Madness.

Senior Seminar: Ranking Every Player in My Four Years

When my buddy Jack Spooner approached me with this idea, I was immediately floored. As sports fans, we live for rankings of any type. We want power rankings, mock drafts, big boards and more, especially when it involves our favorite team. Continue reading “Senior Seminar: Ranking Every Player in My Four Years”

Preview: Championship Sunday versus the Panthers

The Musketeers will be playing for some hardware for the second year in a row in Orlando, as the winners of the AdvoCare Invitational from a season ago will take on the Northern Iowa Panthers in the Tire Pros Invitational championship. Coincidentally, the Musketeers had the Panthers on their non-conference schedule already, meaning that they will take on Northern Iowa on this Championship Sunday as well as this Saturday, Nov. 26 at the Cintas Center.

Macura Leads Xavier Past Clemson and Into Championship Game

One thing Coach Mack has stressed this year is that he is not worried about the offense. The offense will come, it’s the defense the team needs to be focusing on. Continue reading “Macura Leads Xavier Past Clemson and Into Championship Game”

Recap: Musketeers Dismantle Buffalo with Turnaround Performance

A few nights after the Musketeers escaped with a win against Lehigh, Xavier looked like a completely different team on Monday night in their 86-53 romping of Buffalo.

The big story was the defense, which stepped up in more ways than one in the win. After allowing Lehigh to shoot 50 percent from the floor and almost 40 percent from three, the Bulls shot 31 percent from the field in one of the longest games we will (hopefully) see all year. Buffalo only made five two-point field goals, including a mere eight points in the paint. Continue reading “Recap: Musketeers Dismantle Buffalo with Turnaround Performance”

Preview: Don’t Sleep on the Bulls

Following a lackluster performance in the season opener, the Musketeers will be back in action Monday, Nov. 14 to take on the University of Buffalo. The Bulls are the two-time defending champions of the Mid-American Conference. Continue reading “Preview: Don’t Sleep on the Bulls”
