    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Xavier played a really good first half and is only up by 2, so that makes me nervous. On the other hand, surely Temple has to cool off from 3. Great game so far.

    This has been a great game. Hope these two meet again in the A-10 championship. I may be looking ahead, but I can see both of these squads getting an at-large bid (in the case that neither wins the A-10 championship)
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Xavier is a different team since the Shootout. It seems the light switched on in a big way after that humiliation and I am really enjoying this squad. Chris Mack and his staff are amazing.

    Those throwback unis are the best.

    It has kind of fallen under the radar, but the Musketeers are doing this without three-point ace Brad Redford.

    Since we are discussing the Atlantic 10, props to the Duquesne Dukes. the last time they were this good, Norm Nixon was playing for them.

    12 votes in this week's AP poll (good for 32nd), 3 in the Coaches Poll (37th). Nice to see the X Men getting some love from the pollsters in a rebuilding year. Hopefully they can take care of business and crack the Top 25 before heading to Athens for a huge road tilt with Georgia.

    I hoped to beat Richmond, but I didn't imagine a victory by that margin. Well, actually I did with my second win in a row on the Xavier Hoops Pick the Score contest.

    Strange, strange ending to this game.

    Definitely bizarre. The refs had no clue what they were doing with the technical. That was a terrible loss. How do you go on the road and rout Richmond only to lose to Charlotte?

    Well you probably figured you were going 1-1 on the road trip right? Part of it is the regression to the mean, a smaller part is probably getting an inflated sense of self.

    A bigger part would probably be going eight minutes without a made field goal. Just a guess, though.

    Your best player going 3-17 (0-8) doesn't help.

    True, although Lyons stepped up his game to offset Tu's clunker. Other than Jamel the rest of the team forgot to show up.

    The bigger part was the regression to the mean certainly. They missed a ton of shots they normally make.
    I tried to make the point about the swelled heads as delicately as I could because it's not an overarching problem, but I think it's natural to fall into a sense of "Well we beat Richmond by 25, now we can relax."
    The margin for error really is slim that any feelings like that can mean the difference between a 25 point win and a loss.
