    Should be interesting.

    That means UC will win.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    I think the game depends on how much Holloway can play, and what kind of impact he will have when he's in there. Jackson and Redford are not point guards, and against a team with presumably a capable defense with good athletes, they won't get any dribble penetration and the transition game will be almost non-existent.

    Xavier, like most college teams, isn't very good without good PG play.

    Tickets still available. And supposedly Holloway will give it a go vs. OU.

    Not as if this matters much at this point, but Xavier is #1 in the RPI

    They showed a graphic a couple minutes ago, and Duke had made as many FG as X had attempted....

    Regroup time. This is what I like about college basketball; XU can take this defeat and move on and still be a player March Madness. Not saying that WILL happen, but the point is that basketball games in December are still about building the team that makes a run at the and of the year. Ranking at this time means so little.

    Nice win for Xavier tonight. I think they've finally overcome the Duke embarrassment from the national perspective.

    X is a very well coached team.

    Nothing to be ashamed of in that regard. Duke seems to be steamrolling everyone nowadays.

    Get back to me in March though

    I'm still not impressed with X's guards (Raymond technically starts at guard, but really is a 3), but those bigs are tremendous. They beat the crap out of LSU lanky big guys. Frease had a great game, and Love was his usual, understated self.
