This one will be short and sweet since I'm remote.
Preview from Xavier site
Leading scorer: Semaj Christon at 15.5 a game. He was the A-10 rookie of the year last season. Christon is their version of Trevor Releford.
Matt Stainbrook grabs 8.5 boards. He's a 6'10 junior transfer from Western Michigan
Myles Davis is shooting 47.3% from beyond the arc.
Xavier has 7 averaging 20 minutes per game, 10 logging more than 13 minutes. They are also a defensive minded club at 63.5 PPG (score 73.8).
Better than average FG percentage and 3pt shooting... lousy FT with a +5.9 rebound margin.
Upside- this is the first true road game of the year.
Upside 2- haven't played in a week (hope for rust).
Downside- winners of 3 straight
Prediction- I have no idea... whoever gets up by 10 probably wins.
Game time is 7PM EST (6PM CST) on CSS and ESPN3. Tickets are like a buck for kids under 18. I hope we have a decent crowd to support the team. Only students that MIGHT attend are those local to Tuscaloosa.
