Xavier Farr Sighted Against Seton Hall

James Farr is putting together a phenomenal year.

His 24 points led the Xavier Musketeers to a bounce back 84-76 win over the Seton Hall Pirates.

Farr, who was third in the Big East with 8.8 rebounds per game gathered in 15 to allow Xavier to outrebound the Pirates as they have all but one opponent this season.

The Xavier (17-2, 5-2 Big East) extricated their loss to Georgetown on Tuesday from their memory by handing the young Seton Hall (13-6, 3-4 Big East) its second straight loss. They dropped a close 72-71 contest to conference leader Villanova on Wednesday.

Sophomore Desi Rodriguez had 21 points and tied teammate Ismael Sanogo with eight rebounds.

"This is a very talented Seton Hall team," Xavier coach Chris Mack said. "They are going to make some noise in March."

Trevon Bluiett had 15 points and Edmond Sumner added 13 for the Musketeers.

Khadeen Carrington had 19 points and Isaiah Whitehead added 17 to the Pirates cause.

Xavier led 40-36 at the half.  Seton Hall closed to within one point at 15-49 with 15:57 left in the game.
The Musketeers asserted itself with a 21-7 run to reach its largest led of 15 (71-56) with 8:30 left to play.

Seton Hall's last basket with three seconds left provided the final eight-point margin.
"They played a good 1-3-1 zone," said Seton Hall's lone senior Derrick Gordon, who played against Xavier junior Myles Davis in Plainfield, New Jersey. "Our shots didn't fall then we lost focus on defense."

Gordon, who lived five miles from Davis in New Jersey compared the Musketeers with the Villanova team that beat the Pirates by a point on Wednesday.

"They're both great teams they are both at the top of the conference," Gordon sadi. "I think Xavier is a little better."
