    Xavier Basketball

    With the wins over Mizzou, VaTech and Memphis in four days (and the top 20 ranking that's on the way), I think Xavier has earned their own thread now.

    All this coming from an incredibly young team too. Season is going to be interesting but definitely inspires some hope moving forward.

    I love the way Xavier has played basketball in the past few years. Sean Miller is a fantastic coach. The depth they have right now is outstanding. They're never going to have any stars but they can spread their points around to 7-8 different guys. Last night, Derrick Brown had an off night and only two points but McClean stepped up in his place. Frease was in foul trouble all night and Jason Love was huge down low. Memphis v. Xavier last night was an interesting contrast, a program who prides itself on stud recruiting and one and done guys v. a program who prides itself on team basketball and guys developing for four years. I'm looking forward to watching this team develop..

    Sean Miller has turned Xavier into a "must watch" team for me. I love watching his teams play.

    XU won every game because they possessed one trait their opponent did not ... ability to hit foul shots as the game came to a close.

    That and the ability to hit the occasional desperation mid-court heave.

    Holloway is going to be a big time stud. Sean should send Kelvin Sampson a card.

    You'll be thanking him for Jordan Crawford next year as well.

    it VT had hit their foul shots near the end of regulation there would have been no half court heave.

    The one problem I can see Xavier having is perimeter shooting. Raymond is not the type to create his own shot, Jackson is an average shooter at best, and Redford just isn't ready for big time D-1 basketball in any way, shape, or form. Brown can shoot, but you're wasting his talents out there.

    Inside and on defense they are as good as anyone, though. Those two areas alone will win them 22 games.

    I doubt it. I saw him last year, and he struck me as a huge ballhog. Just sayin'.

    He won't play like that under Miller. The kid is very talented.

    Now Holloway is out several weeks with a fracture in his foot. Miami, Auburn and Ohio shouldn't be a problem without Holloway (if they are, there are major issues), but that UC, Duke, Butler stretch that was going to be so tough anyway now looks brutal.
