CINCINNATI -- With less weight and more quickness, guard Trevon Bluiett is turning into an all-around scorer at the heart of Xaviers offense.Bluiett scored 15 of his 23 points during Xaviers dominant first half, and the seventh-ranked Musketeers remained unbeaten with an 85-55 victory over North Dakota State on Tuesday night.The Musketeers (7-0) opened with a decisive run for the second straight game. Bluiett hit the biggest shots and finished with seven assists and five rebounds. He dropped his weight from 217 to 194 pounds in the offseason to improve his quickness.Im trying not to rely on the 3-ball too much, said Bluiett, who went 3 of 8 from beyond the arc. Live by the 3, die by the 3, and I tried to change that philosophy. Losing weight kind of helped that, too. Ive been able to incorporate things into my game.Sean OMara added 12 points and five rebounds, and Malcolm Bernard had 10 points and eight rebounds.Xavier got up 30-10 during a 64-42 win over Northern Iowa on Saturday, giving up only 12 points in the first half -- the fewest it has allowed in any half since the shot clock was introduced for the 1985-86 season. Against North Dakota State (5-3) , the Musketeers opened with a 30-11 run and were never challenged.The Musketeers finished with 23 assists on 31 field goals.I thought the offense flowed well, we shared the ball a lot, Bernard said. I love the way we played on offense. I thought it was fun, it was exciting.Redshirt freshman Deng Geu scored a career-high 18 for the Bison, who trailed by as many as 36 points. Nobody else scored more than nine.Deng is only eight games into his varsity career, coach David Richman said. He has oodles and oodles of potential, but hes struggled with his confidence. It was good for him to hit that first 3. I thought he played better after that.POLL IMPLICATIONSXavier moved up two spots in this weeks poll to No. 7, where it started the season. The Musketeers have a chance to make their case for another jump with a game at No. 9 Baylor on Saturday.BIG PICTURENorth Dakota State: The Bison are 3-11 against ranked teams, with the wins over No. 13 Wisconsin in 2005-06, No. 9 Marquette in 2006-07, and No. 20 Oklahoma during the 2014 NCAA tournament.Xavier: Sophomore forward Kaiser Gates moved much better in his second game back from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. He scored six points and had two rebounds in 14 minutes. Against Northern Iowa, Gates played 11 minutes, missed his only shot and picked up three fouls.His (conditioning) is probably the thing thats going to keep him back from playing more right now, its not his knee, coach Chris Mack said . We just feel like hes building toward being a full-time contributor. He took a better step tonight, a lot better step than against Northern Iowa.FAST STARTSXavier won its first 12 games last year and its first eight games in 2011, the Musketeers best starts during Macks eight seasons.QUIET SUMNERXavier point guard Edmond Sumner played only 12 minutes in the first half and didnt take a shot. He finished with five points and seven assists in 23 minutes, by far his season low.NO 3s ... OR ANYTHING ELSENorth Dakota States A.J. Jacobson was 14 of 18 on 3-points shots heading into the game, so Xavier locked in on him. Jacobson missed both of his shots and failed to score.UP NEXTNorth Dakota State plays at North Carolina A&T on Friday, ending a three-game road swing.Xavier has lost both its games against Baylor -- 69-64 during Macks first season as coach in 2009-10, and 75-70 in the third round of the 2012 NCAA tournament.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.orgCheap Throwback NHL Jerseys .ca!

After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times.FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Brandon Marshall has experienced division in a losing NFL locker room.The star wide receiver sees no signs of that with the New York Jets, and he attributes that to one person:Todd Bowles, Marshall said about his coach.The criticism of Bowles has been building for a few weeks, and the calls by some fans and media for the 3-9 Jets to fire him have grown increasingly louder after a 41-10 drubbing on Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts.Marshall thinks that notion is silly, and so are the suggestions that the Jets are becoming a divided team that is in disarray with waning control from the coach. He was on the 2014 Chicago Bears team that went 5-11 and had players sniping at each other, as well as coaches.Im not trying to say anything bad about previous employment, but Ive been in a locker room in 2014 in the same exact situation, and it was 100 times worse, Marshall said Wednesday. The locker room was divided. There was a lot of division. There was a division between players, there was division between players and coaches. We dont have that.Weve had some tough conversations and we held each other accountable, but were still together. And thats promising.That Bears team, coached by Marc Trestman, was 5-6 before losing its last five games. There was in-fighting, with some blame pointed at Marshall himself. Chicago cleaned house after that season, including firing Trestman and general manager Phil Emery, and trading Marshall to the Jets.That was the worst environment and worst year Ive ever had, Marshall said. Ever. Ever.But there have been comparisons made to teams like those Bears, especially with the Jets on a four-game skid and looking at an uncertain future.You can look at it from the outside and say this is a similar situation, but its not, Marshall insisted. That whole organization was divided. Thats not the case here. Were together. Were having a bad year. Sometimes years like this build teams to be stronger.MMarshall credits Bowles with unifying the team, refusing to allow outside chatter seep into the locker room and causing rifts between the players.ddddddddddddThats why were still together, is because hes real, Marshall said of Bowles. He tells it like it is and hes a man of his word.Marshall referred to Bowles threatening the team with running gassers in practice this summer if they got called for another penalty.Hes a mans man, Marshall said. The best way I can describe Coach is hes a mix between Bill Parcells and Lovie Smith. Those are the guys Ive been around -- Bill Parcells brought me to Miami; Lovie Smith, I had him in Chicago -- total opposite ends of the spectrum from the outside, but great guys to play for.Marshall was then asked if the Jets feel as though theyre playing the final four games to save Bowles job.No, Marshall said. I would hope not. How did that work out for Chicago? Sometimes you blow up stuff and you feel like thats the answer and its not.Marshall insisted NFL teams need time to build chemistry and to put together a winning plan. He also thinks Bowles should undoubtedly remain coach of the Jets beyond this season.You guys do remember a couple of years ago, he was probably the most coveted coach out there, Marshall asked. All of a sudden, he lost it?Game notesThe 32-year-old Marshall, in his 11th season, says he wants to play 20 years in the NFL. ... New York had a lengthy list of player who didnt practice: S Antonio Allen (concussion), T Breno Giacomini (back, calf, shoulder), C Nick Mangold (ankle), WR Jalin Marshall (concussion), LB Lorenzo Mauldin (ankle), DT Steve McLendon (hamstring), RB Khiry Robinson (leg), LB Julian Stanford (ankle), DE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) and DE Leonard Williams (illness).---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
