Re: VCU vs. Xavier

X has the advantage. VCU will be tired from the excessive travel and will be drained from the big loss to SLU on Tuesday. X will make a run this season to make us proud of the team. Mack will have the team pulling together and peaking at the right time. It all starts with VCU.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

VCU will have some difficulty defending Xavier's big guys down low, but Xavier could have some difficulty defending the three. It wouldn't shock me to see a replay of the X-UR game in this one where X shoots 50%+ from the field but VCU stays in it by making threes. I'd take X by a few points because they're at home.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

A lot of things may happen in the game, but I can guarantee that being tired from traveling isn't going to be one of them.

You can stop repeating it.

Bait...from some idiot. Probably Mud or the like. Or a ten year old who hasn't been allowed on the interwebs.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

Supposedly it's a Richmond fan with a hard-on for VCU.

I think Xavier does pull this one out, but what are Stonewall and XMark going to say once the SLU game comes around?

Rooting for VCU! Kick 'em when they're up, kick 'em when they are down.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

It should be a very interesting game today. I hope that the Muskies spent their practice time since the URI game with the full-court offensive game going against at least 7 defenders. In the short TV time that I have seen VCU this year, it seems like they have 6-7 guys playing defense all the time but I must be wrong because that would be a violation. And, despite the Rams' speed, effectiveness, and quickness, even A-10 refs should be able to count that high and detect the extra defenders on the floor.

I just want the team I support to be in a stronger conference. I'd prefer it to be a stronger A-10! To me that would mean every member would have at least 2 trips to the NCAA Tourney and 5 winning seasons during each 10-year cycle. It would also be great for every program to seriously challenge for a league title (either regular season or Tourney) at least once during that same period of time.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

From what I have seen, the muskies will have to be on their game. The SLU plan is to use 7 defenders on the court at once in practice. That might get my Muskies ready. The VCU will be a great game, but I expect X to win.

Not sure about about this, go X.

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

Great first half for X, most everything went well. Not sure VCU struggles from the 3 so much for rest of game. Their 3s will start falling

Re: VCU vs. Xavier

Haven't seen this thread in a while. IMHO, X wins this one big, by at least 20 points. At this point, VCU is losing by 13, I can t see VCU coming back from this deficit.

It's amazing how quickly VCU can flip the script. Seven point game now.
