Trevon Bluiett is a 6'6 sophomore guard for the Musketeers. He currently leads Xavier in minutes with 30.2 mpg, points with 14.5 ppg, 3 pointers made per game at 2.5, and field goals attempted per game at 11.3. He is also second on the team in rebounding with 7.5 boards per game. Bluiett shoots an impressive 45% from beyond the arc, which is better than the 42% he shoots from inside it. He is very similar to Cornelius Hudson in that he is tall for a guard and has a quick release, making his shot difficult to contest.

Bluiett is also a very capable passer, averaging 2.0 assists per game. Because he is so tall for a guard, it makes it easy for him to see over defenders and make crisp passes to open guys for easy baskets.

Bluiett has scored in double-figures every game this year but one, and has a season-high of 22 points that included 5-8 shooting from downtown. Given how the Deacs struggle at times to keep opposing guards out of the lane on the defensive end, Bluiett will likely be able to get inside and kick out to his teammates for open 3s, and will probably have plenty of good looks from the 3 point line himself off of similar drive and kick plays. If the Deacs want to slow down Bluiett and the Musketeers, they will have to be able to keep the Xavier guards from getting in the paint.
