And that goes back 3 years to when Crawford was there. All of a sudden, 26 foot 3 pointers were going up...and in. I loved it for a time, but I think fans are pleasantly surprised now with the new 'old' style that's being played this year.
The effect seems to be maximizing the talent they have, which makes you wonder why we all worried prior to this season since for 2 decades Xavier's gotten results without top recruiting classes. Guys like Martin and Redford can just put it in the bucket. Dee Davis is a bred winner. That right there is a strong start. Add in a few stretch 4's and some veterans in the frontcourt, and they've got a lot of talent. Oh yeah, then there's Semaj, one of the best frosh in the country.
