2.9 Around The Big East

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, MU teams get precedence over the rest of the league. I'm sure you understand.

Georgetown 71, Butler 63 - Sup, Markel Starks. The senior guard had 19 points, seven assists, and no turnovers while playing the full 40 minutes to get the Hoyas their third straight win.

Because it's Butler, it wasn't easy, of course.  After Jabril Trawick pushed the lead to nine with five minutes to play, Khyle Marshall and Kameron Woods teamed up to send the Bulldogs on a 7-2 run to cut the lead to just four with 1:42 remaining. From there, the Hoyas headed to the line and drained seven of their eight attempts and iced the game away.

Andrew Chrabascz had 24 points and four rebounds to lead the Bulldogs.  You can get more on this game from both Butler Hoops and Casual Hoya.

Xavier 59, Providence 53 - Matt Stainbrook and Justin Martin both had 12 points and Semaj Christon added 12 as the Musketeers ended a three game skid.  In fact, it was a loss at the Dunkin' Donuts Center to the Friars that started the slump.

It was Christon that made the plays to close the game out.  He split a pair of free throws with a minute left to put Xavier up by two, then forced Bryce Cotton into turnovers on consecutive possessions.  Xavier converted both of those Christon steals into four points, and thus, the game was over.

Xavier held Cotton to just nine points on 4-11 shooting while the Friars star was playing every single minute of the game.  Josh Fortune had 17 points and eight rebounds to lead Providence in the losing effort.  Banners on the Parkway can tell you more about this game.
