The Big East is only slightly better, at #21 SOS. I know it won't matter, but they should get hit hard by the committee for that crap. Notre Dame, Pitt, and Georgetown in particular should get ripped. Not a single true road game OOC. And SOS doesn't even take that into account, so that is probably worse than the Horizon schedules, because many of those Horizon games are true road games. Ridiculous.

Uhhh, let me think. Just like any other fan I like my team to win every game. Will they? No, of course not. I do believe that my team has the deepest backcourt in the A10 (and I ain't the only one) and will finish in the top 4 of the A10 this year... being one of the first in the NCAA.

KA0 with 17 first half points for the Spiders. Would be a badly needed win.

Xavier down 31-26 at half.

I tuned in for the last couple minutes and I saw Stenger travel down on the block and then miss 2 free throws the following possession.

X really needs this win.

Re: 1/2 A-10 Games

Travis Taylor playing very well for Xavier. Hitting the glass and finishing just about everything in the paint.

http://espn.go.com/ncb/boxscore?gameId=330020154

Travis Taylor with 16 first-half points on 8-9 shooting from the field.

No other Xavier player scored more than 2 points in the first half.

I have never seen that occur before, and I have been watching college basketball for over 50 years.

EDIT: Today's Pregame RPI Rankings:

# 38 Massachusetts, # 128 Miami (OH)

# 102 - Xavier, # 207 - Wake Forest

I'm not watching the Charlotte game, but it seems like quite the struggle.

Re: 1/2 A-10 Games

3-2 fast break for X- Robinson misses the dunk. Philmore gets board then only makes 1 of 2 free throws.

This is pathetic.

Re: 1/2 A-10 Games

Philmore tries to take it up against 3 defenders and gets totally rejected. This is comical.

The slowest, most unathletic player I've ever watched actually get major minutes in an X uniform.

Re: 1/2 A-10 Games

I'm surprised to see Penn hanging around against Butler.

Semaj taking the ball to the basket with some nice moves, but nothing, absolutely nothing, will fall for him.
