This is one of my absolute favorite Xavier seasons ever. Not the best team, maybe, but they took the punishment at the beginning of the season and never lost their focus.
Today was a microcosm: shooting 19% from the field in the first half, Minny sending back half our shots, Love 0-7 from the field. And they come out in the second half and just gut it out, possession by possession. Crawford was immense. If he comes back this is a Final Four contender next year.
There are only two teams in the country who have been to the Sweet Sixteen every year from 2008-2010 and Xavier is one of them. Go X!
The Revenge Tour heads to the Great Salt Lake. GO X!
Well done lads. Impressive showing.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
Xavier's women were just a whisker away from the Final Four. A missed front end of the one and one by an 83% foul shooter and two missed layups keep them out.
Our guys may not be very good this year, but Jimmy Carter lives!
I think the biggest difference between these two teams the past few seasons is that xavier has had that player that can put a game on his shoulder and carry the team. Tu did just that last night. As a Flyer fan, I had hoped 4 years ago that Chris Wright would become that player for UD, but that hasn't happened. He's a great player, but simply cannot take over a game when the team needs it. Having said that, I really feel that Staten will become that player.
Congrats to xavier for a hard fought win. Here's hoping for another 25 point Flyer victory in Dayton.
Nice win tonight in Olean. X just took control after a horrendous first half. Holloway is a special player.
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
Well, you can definitely chalk this game up as a loss.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
