Bluiett's 17 pts in 2nd half leads Xavier past DePaul 75-64

NEW YORK (AP) Even when his shots were clanging off the rim in the first half, Trevon Bluiett never lost confidence, and that's a major reason Xavier still has a shot at the NCAA Tournament.

Bluiett scored all 17 of his points in the second half and Xavier posted its fourth straight 20-win season with a 75-64 victory over DePaul in the first round of the Big East Tournament on Wednesday night.

The win was the seventh-seeded Musketeers' second in five days over DePaul, and it set up a second-round game on Thursday against No. 18 Butler, the second seed.
