KEY GAME INFORMATION
MARQUETTE: Last season: 19-13, lost to South Carolina in first round of NCAA Tournament.
Who's gone: Team will miss post presence and leadership of C Luke Fischer (10.9 points, 5.9 rebounds). Second-leading scorer and fellow senior starter Jajuan Johnson (12.0 points) is gone too, along with G Katin Reinhardt, who scored 10.8 points off the bench. G Duane Wilson (4.8 points) transferred to Texas A&M.
Who's back: Gs Markus Howard (13.2 points) and Andrew Rowsey (11.6 points) might be one of the best shooting backcourts in the country from the 3-point line. Howard led the nation in 3-point shooting (54 percent) as a freshman. F Sam Hauser (8.8 points, 5.0 rebounds) showed impressive poise as a freshman. F Haanif Cheatham (8.7 points) is a full go again following a preseason shoulder injury. C Matt Heldt (2.3 points, 2.9 rebounds) must step up with Fischer gone.
Who's new: Marquette adds four freshmen, including three forwards at least 6-foot-7 or taller. Six-eleven C Harry Froling, a transfer from SMU, is eligible in mid-December, while sophomore swingman Sacar Anim returns after redshirting last year. Wojciechowski will eventually have more length on defense after playing much of last season with four guards surrounding Fischer.
The Skinny: A former point guard, Wojciechowski is looking for Howard to become a more all-around player, which should be important since defenses won't sleep on his 3-point prowess. Establishing a post presence to complement the shooters will be important. A return to NCAAs may depend on whether the added length helps tighten the defense.
XAVIER: Last season: 24-14, reached third Elite Eight in school history.
Who's gone: Point guard Edmond Sumner (NBA), guard Malcolm Bernard, forward RaShid Gaston.
Who's back: Guard Trevon Bluiett considered the NBA before deciding to return for his senior season, giving Xavier one of the top scorers (18.5 points per game) in the Big East. Senior guard J.P. Macura was the only player to start every game during Xavier's injury-riddled season and had his best moments in the NCAA Tournament, averaging 13 points. 4.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists. Forward Sean O'Mara emerged during the tournament, including an 18-point game against Maryland. Point guard Quentin Goodin took over after Sumner tore an ACL and averaged 5.3 assists in 17 starts as a freshman. Forward Tyrique Jones started 13 games as a freshman and averaged 4.2 points. Forward Kaiser Gates overcame injuries and started four games as a sophomore, averaging 5.8 points.
Who's new: Forward Kerem Kanter transferred from Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he averaged 11.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. He's expected to step into a big role with his ability to shoot from the outside and push the ball up the floor.
The Skinny: The Musketeers have never reached a Final Four, losing to Gonzaga in the Elite Eight last season to miss out again. They've got one of their most balanced and experienced teams heading into Mack's ninth season at his alma mater.
PREVIEW
Xavier's Bluiett may reach milestone against Marquette
 

CINCINNATI -- It has not been a smooth season for Trevon Bluiett, who had bouts of inconsistency while dealing with a minor shoulder issue. But, things are looking up for the Xavier senior guard, who this week was named to the midseason Oscar Robertson watch list.

Bluiett is just 13 points shy of becoming eighth-ranked Xavier's fifth 2,000-point scorer heading into Wednesday night's game against Marquette at Xavier's Cintas Center.

After scoring just 23 points in losses at Providence and Villanova combined, Bluiett has averaged 20.6 points in the past three games.

"I'm still approaching 2,000 points," Musketeers coach and former player Chris Mack quipped about Bluiett's impending achievement. "It shows your consistency. You're a target on everybody's scouting report. A lot of guys can score 1,000 points in four years. He's one of the best shooters in the country."

Wednesday's game will feature some serious Big East Conference firepower, with two of the top four active career scoring leaders on the court in Bluiett and Marquette guard Andrew Rowsey, who already has eclipsed 2,000 career points.

The first meeting between the two schools went down to the wire at the Bradley Center, with Xavier winning 91-87 behind 23 points from Bluiett and 15 from J.P. Macura. The Musketeers won despite Rowsey putting on a shooting clinic, with 31 points and six 3-pointers.

Xavier, however, did a solid job defending the Golden Eagles' leading scorer, Markus Howard, who had 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting. He was 1 of 8 from 3-point range, but averages 21.5 points for the season.

Mack said there will be no surprises on either side this time around.

"Everybody's on the same page," Mack said. "Our problems are Marquette's problems. Familiarity becomes a lot greater the second time through. We have to make the game as difficult as possible for their perimeter players."

Xavier (18-3, 6-2 Big East) has won four straight, including a come-from-behind win at No. 19 Seton Hall on Saturday.

One question for the Musketeers is how much of an impact Kerem Kanter will make on Wednesday. The graduate transfer forward has been a pleasant surprise this season, but he played only nine minutes Saturday against Seton Hall and struggled in the pace at which the first meeting with the Golden Eagles was played in December.

"I don't think his ball-screen defense was what it is needed to be," said Mack. "I haven't lost faith in Kerem. I don't want our guys to look over their shoulder. This game, it's going to be very important that our bigs recognize when a ball-screen is coming."

Marquette leads the all-time series 49-23, but Xavier has won seven of the past nine meetings. The Musketeers had won six straight before the Golden Eagles swept the season series last year.

Marquette (13-6, 4-3 Big East) has made 10 or more 3-pointers in 14 of its 19 games. The Golden Eagles will attack the Musketeers with a three-pronged attack, led by Howard, Rowsey, and Sam Hauser, who averages 15.1 points.

"Unless you are in the wars and the battles night after night, you can't fully appreciate the level of competition in this league. It is an honor to be a coach in this league but is damn hard, too," Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski said.
