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.
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”
It’s been the same narrative for about the last month with Xavier. “They can’t win on the road and they haven’t beaten a good team yet.” “This team is doomed, they’re without some of their best players.” “Might as well just make the best of this year and get hyped for next year.” Continue reading “You Wanted a #Roadkill, You Got a #Roadkill”
Last night, after commiserating for about an hour after the heart-wrenching performance that had just been witnessed, I found myself needing some sustenance and decided on Currito. As I opened the door, the first words I heard were “life goes on” from the legendary song Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp. That caused me to stop, think, and reflect on both the game and the season as a whole. First, let’s take a look at this game. Continue reading “An Uppercut But Not a Knockout”
Well, there was some, uh, slightly important news today from the press conference. If you didn’t hear, Myles Davis has been reinstated to the basketball program. Look back for a post on that tomorrow, but for now, here’s what happened in today’s throttling of the St. John’s Red Storm. Continue reading “Xavier Remains Undefeated in the Big East”
This Xavier team has given fans some cause for concern, but there has been much reassurance that it’s still only December. So, when Eastern Washington exploded out to a 22-11 lead in the first half, worry filled the Twitosphere that Xavier was in trouble of dropping a buy game to the Eagles. Xavier’s shots weren’t falling, and it seemed like Eastern Washington could chuck it up from anywhere and it would find the bottom of the net.

I’m going to keep this preview short just like I’m hoping the game is only in doubt for a short period of time tonight. Continue reading “Preview: Xavier vs. North Dakota State”
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. Continue reading “Preview: Championship Sunday versus the Panthers”
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”
Ok, everybody do it with me. Breathe in…1…2…3…breathe out…1…2…3. Xavier won the game, and that’s what matters. It wasn’t pretty, but at the end of the day Xavier had more points than the other guys, and that means the Musketeers will advance to take on Clemson tomorrow.
