    Re: Xavier Basketball

    There are some rumblings that Stainbrook might play tonight despite what was previously stated. I'm not getting my hopes up but his availability would be a big lift.

    That was a hard fought win. Bring on Creighton.

    Great win. I really dislike that Gardner guy from Marquette. He's way too big to be flopping all over the place like he does.

    His acting on the "elbow" from Stainbrook was La Liga worthy.

    Speaking of Stainbrook -- what a gutty performance. He gave huge, productive minutes despite being nowhere near close to 100% or in top physical condition.

    You were right, the game was in Gardner's hands until Stainbrook showed up and wore him down. He and Burton were making Farr and Reynolds look childish.

    Nice rally but it just wasn't enough against a very good Creighton team. And now we play the waiting game.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Thanks to Providence's upset win, seeing now that Xavier is projected as heading for a play-in game.

    That's insulting for a major conference team. I'd almost be tempted to tell the NCAA to sod off.

    Lunardi's got a possible UK-Xavier matchup right now. That could be interesting.
    Rounding third and heading for home...

    So they can take that crucial NIT bid?

    They're going to get what they deserve. Win more games, not an issue.

    The play in games almost always feature major conference teams competing for 11/12 seeds.

    And it's total garbage. Either you make the tournament or you don't. The "play-in" game was your season.

    Honestly? Yes.

    The tournament is 64 teams. If you aren't one of the 64, try harder next season. This effort to expand the tournament is a joke. It's nothing more than an effort to have more television and make more money.

    I'd gladly take missing the tournament every so often if it would get rid of the stupid play-in games.

    I can virtually guarantee there's not a coach or player in the country who agrees with you.

    And I can absolutely guarantee there's not a college athletic administrator who agrees with you.
