    I feel a lot better about this stretch with victories over Mizzou, VT and Memphis in the bank.

    I trust Sean and staff to ensure that Holloway doesn't try to come back too fast and aggravate the stress fracture.

    If X can get to the New Year at 10-2 (i.e., loss to Duke, split with UC and Butler) and a healthy Holloway they'll be in great shape.

    Man, Xavier looks bad without Holloway. If Holloway can't play, I'm not particularly confident about the UC game.

    I agree they sounded pretty shaky last night against Auburn without a point. Then again, they were up by 20+ in the 2nd half before they allowed the Tigers back in the game by not making anything from the line. The good news is there is loads of room for improvement and tons of kinks Sean Miller needs to work out but they are winning and doing it against some decent competition...

    The most troubling thing from last night's game was the lack of defensive intensity in the second half. Miller lit them up apparently. He made a point at the beginning of the postgame show to note that AU scored 37 points in the last 12 minutes of the game. That is death for this Xavier team, because points are always going to be at a premium.

    With that said, I don't think it was all bad last night. Raymond appears to have found his stroke, we played very well on offense in spurts.

    I do think X is set up for a real stinker of a result (see Arizona State last year) but I suspect it's coming against Duke. The UC game should be characteristically tight.

    I still haven't had a chance to see Xavier play this year. Anyone know when their next national TV game?

    What do you mean by national? EVERY Xavier game is on national TV, sort of. They're all on FSN Ohio, CBS College Sports, ESPNU, another ESPN network or CBS (the Duke game). If you have DirecTV and have the sports pack, I'm fairly certain you can see every single Xavier game this year if you live in Fairbanks, AK.

    In terms of real national TV games (ESPN, ESPN2 or an over the air network), the Shootout is the 14th on either ESPN or ESPN2, and the game after that is Duke on the 21st on CBS.

    National to me means ESPN, ESPN2 or an over-the-air network. The rest of those channels aren't on the basic package from Directv.

    So they have a couple of games coming up next week on ESPN. Cool, thanks.

    Sort of a "Bizarrro-World" Crosstown Shootout coming on Saturday. Xavier is in the top 10, and UC will come in unranked.

    Should be interesting.
