What the heck happened?
I'll give an insiders view: Xavier is the same team now that they were before the brawl. People just didn't notice because the lucky bounces went our way; since then they haven't. This is a good but not great team and that is how the season is shaking out. With the soft bubble this is probably still a tournament team but unless the 4 and 5 players suddenly learn to play tough it is one and done.
