    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Xavier has got to beat Richmond on Sunday -- basically assuring Temple the Regular Season A-10 Title. (I'm assuming tie-breakers would set in: Temple beat Xavier, Temple lost to Richmond, etc...)
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    They'd share the regular season title if both are 14-2. Temple would get the #1 seed in the Tournament.

    This Xavier team has a toughness I haven't seen before. They could go really deep in March. Coach Mack is spectacular!

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    If you didn't see it, Coach Mack posted the message below on xavierhoops.com, then confirmed it was actually him on Twitter. Go X!


    100% Coach Mack, Asking
    for the LOUDEST game ever in the history of the Cintas Center. You say NO students. I say NO excuse. We need our fans to be a TRUE 6th man this Sunday at 1pm. Our team needs you early. Our team needs you loud. If you're just going to come to the game to watch, give your tickets up. Heck, you can WATCH from home. I want our arena rocking!! Calling all PARTICIPANTS. This isn't a marketing ploy. This is your head coach, sitting at his home computer asking for the best fans in the country to come alive for 40 game minutes on Sunday LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

    A-10 teams dis-like coming to our incredible arena. They need to FEAR it. I know the 5 guys on the floor and our bench will play very hard for you on Sunday. We need the 10,250in blue seats to be one big, living, breathing, loud and raucous 6th man. I want EVERYTHING you have. I want a curfew of midnight for all ticket holders. You're going to need your rest. Sunday will be the most fun you've ever had at a Xavier game. On our end we are working with marketing to make sure the pre-game intros, music, etc are ON it this Sunday.

    My staff asked, "How will the fans know it's really you posting on the boards?" I told em that I'll confirm it on twitter. So if you're not a follower, no big deal but that's where skeptics can go. No marketing gimmick here. Wear blue. Stand. Be loud. Get it done. I realize not all Xavier fans come to message boards. That's okay. Copy and paste this and email your X friends. I'm giving the same message to Shannon Russell at my 2:40pm press conference tomorrow. I want to win. Our players want to win. Help be the reason we win! Let's get it!!!!!

    Big win for Xavier today. Barring an epic meltdown against the Bonnies or Fordham, Xavier will at least share the A-10 regular season crown for the fourth straight year (although Temple controls its own destiny for the #1 seed in Atlantic City).

    That was a great win. Jason Love is quickly turning into my all-time favorite Musketeer.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Big matchup this friday with UD...redemption time. Big weekend, hopefully.

    1) UD - payback
    2) RU - Jcraw = A10 POY
    3) TU - Ownership of the conference

    I'd love to see this weekend play out as such.

    GO XU!

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    As a Flyer fan, I'm glad to see this game because I think UD matches up better against xavier than the other top seeded teams. Having said that though, I can't see the Flyers pulling out a win. That 25 point win earlier against xavier appears to be simply a mirage. You can't win big games at this level with mediocre guard play.

    I do think UD will make it a game, but like every loss they've had this season, they won't be able to finish. Hope I'm wrong though.

    It's almost like the Xavier win sent UD spiraling out of control. The emotional high of crushing a rival has been replaced by the inability to finish even the easiest games. I agree with your assessment that it will be a good game but UD won't be able to close it out.

    I don't agree with this at all. After that X game, UD beat Charlotte by 28. The next game they lost to SLU in double-OT when SLU sent the game into OT with a 35ft prayer at the buzzer. That's the game that sent UD into a downward spiral.
    because at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up--Marty B.

    Sure, but it's more fun to take credit for your destruction. Guess I'll have to wait one more day for that.

    That was a satisfying comeback. That punch will live in UD-XU lore forever.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    That's a fitting way for Dayton's season to end (NIT doesn't count). Just a complete collapse.

    Crawford vs. Anderson (assuming they continue to beat on UMass) should be a great show tomorrow.
