Free Sports Picks Forum. They got the point.Naji Marshall scored 23 points Tuesday night and Xavier recovered from its worst offensive game of the season by hitting 3s and pulling away to a 78-67 victory over DePaul.Xavier (18-10, 7-8 Big East) was coming off a 64-55 loss to No. 12 Villanova, the fewest points the Musketeers had scored in a game at the Cintas Center since 2012-13.''After that loss, we took practice very seriously,'' said Marshall, who made eight of his 13 shots. ''Guys got in the gym, worked on their jump shots, worked on film. Guys locked in the last two days and it showed on the court.'' Steele's history lesson from one of boxing's biggest upsets seemed to get their attention.''We get to write our own story,'' Steele said. ''Also, we want them to get the reality of where we are and to play with the sense of urgency that we need.'' They made 10 shots from beyond the arc in the first half while pulling ahead by double-digits against the league's last-place team. Xavier finished with a season-high 12 3-pointers on 25 attempts.Xavier's Tyrique Jones got into foul trouble and had his streak of double-doubles snapped at nine straight games, one shy of the school record shared by Tyrone Hill (1989-90) and David West (2002-03). Jones finished with nine points and five rebounds in 29 minutes.Romero Weems scored 16 points for DePaul (14-14, 2-13), and Paul Reed had 14 points and 16 rebounds.

''I thought that's what happened early.'' Three-point shooting has been a shortcoming for Xavier this season, but the Musketeers went 10-of-19 from beyond the arc in the first half. Marshall led the way, scoring 16 points and overcoming a right shoulder injury that sent him to the bench briefly.Marshall's 3 pushed the lead to 37-24, and Xavier was ahead 44-36 at halftime.Xavier had five turnovers before the first media timeout in the second half, helping DePaul cut the lead to 50-47.

They won their first nine games and went 12-1 in non-conference play.Xavier: The Musketeers needed to beat the Big East's bottom team to protect their NCAA Tournament credentials.
