Where: Cintas Center, Cincinnati, Ohio

Xavier is in the midst of its toughest stretch of the season in terms of competition, and it is not going well. The Musketeers hope to snap a four-game losing streak Sunday when they face another strong opponent, No. 22 Butler, in their penultimate home game.

Xavier is creeping dangerously close to the NCAA Tournament bubble and a fifth consecutive loss certainly wouldn't look good, particularly as the selection committee considers the Musketeers' roster without Edmond Sumner.

The talented guard suffered a torn ACL earlier this month and that has to be part of the reason why the Musketeers haven't scored more than 64 points during their current skid.

"We have to get better," Xavier coach Chris Mack said. "We can pinpoint why, but I am more worried about what we have to do to get better. It seems like it has been a long time since we won a game.

BetOnline has the Butler listed as 2-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 145.
