J.P. Macura, a sharpshooting senior from Lakeville North, announced via Twitter late Monday night that he has committed to play for Xavier.

That marks another near-miss for new Gophers coach Richard Pitino. Macura, a 6-5 shooting guard and the No. 104 recruit in the country per Rivals.com, visited Xavier two weekends ago. He was offered a scholarship by Pitino in July.
