Xavier looks to fix defensive issues vs. Butler Sunday

Paul Scruggs had a big day when Xavier beat Butler 68-55 on January 30. He scored a team-high 24 points with seven rebounds and three assists.

When Xavier University's men's basketball team got back on the court for practice on Wednesday, the day after a disappointing loss at St. John's, they watched every defensive possession from that 93-84 loss, and the entire 90-minute practice that followed was spent on defense. 

"It comes down to the discipline to do it, part of it is effort, I think a bigger part of our issue is the discipline piece," Xavier head coach Travis Steele said Friday in his pre-game press conference ahead of Sunday's visit from Butler. "Our guys, they know what we need to do and they know we have to do it in order to have the success we want to have as a team.

"And we don't have weeks to figure it out, we have days to figure it out."
