Xavier Player Spotlight

Naji Marshall (undisclosed) scored 16 points (6-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT) and added seven rebounds, five assists and two steals in 44 minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss to Marquette. Although Marshall finished second on the team in scoring, his efforts weren't enough to lift the Musketeers to victory. That said, it was good to see him moving without pain as he had entered the game battling an undisclosed injury. Marshall's had a fantastic season and is generating 16.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 34.2 minutes per game overall.

DePaul Player Spotlight

Tyrique Jones had 19 points (9-10 FG, 1-4 FT), 18 rebounds and four blocks across 30 minutes in Saturday's 74-62 victory over Seton Hall.

He's now averaging 10.5 boards on the season, which trails only DePaul's Paul Reed for tops in the Big East.
