The Xavier Musketeers will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Butler Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon.

The Bulldogs lost a one-point game to the Seton Hall Pirates in their last game and will be trying to get over the emotional loss with a win over the Musketeers, which will give them their second win in their last three games.

Butler has been solid on the offensive end this season, averaging 73.5 points per game. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range.

Kamar Baldwin leads the way for the Bulldogs with 16.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game. Paul Jorgensen is averaging 13 points and 3.6 assists per game, while Sean McDermott is averaging 10.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.

The Bulldogs have also played well defensively, holding opponents to 66.8 points per game. They gave up 76 points in their last game and will need to play better to beat the Musketeers on Sunday.

Musketeers Going For Fourth Win In Six Games

The Musketeers managed to snap their two-game losing streak with a win over Georgetown in their last game. They will be trying to pick up their second win in a row and fourth win in their last six games when they face the Bulldogs on Sunday. They will also be trying to extend their winning streak against the Bulldogs to five consecutive games.

Xavier has played well offensively this season, averaging 74 points per game. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range.

Naji Marshall leads the Musketeers with 13.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Paul Scruggs is averaging 12.6 points and 4.9 rebounds per game, while Zach Hankins is averaging 10.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.

The Musketeers haven’t played as well on the defensive end, giving up 70.9 points per game. They gave up 75 points to the Hoyas in their last game and will need a better performance to beat Butler on Sunday afternoon.

I am very passionate about sports, so I kind of feel bad that I get paid to do this. As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
