Duquense would only be X's third road win of the season (Purdue at beginning of Dec and Bona) so it may even be closer than the 7 pt spread... X isn't good at all on the road, but Duquense is bad. We shall seeIs this game on campus or at Consol? It's young, but Duquesne seems to like playing at Consol. X should win, but if I'm gambling, I take Duquesne to cover. They should play well, and Xavier's not a team that blows people out anywhere, let along on the road. I foresee a late Dukes bucket to cap a 67-60 loss.
If they had kept Everhart, one would think McConnell and Talley would have stayed, right? I don't know...Curious whether Duquesne fans think firing Everhart was the right move. He'd sort of lost momentum there and was fielding mediocre teams year after year, but this is one of the worst A-10 teams I've ever seen. Obviously he's partly (mostly?) to blame for this team being awful, but at this point do Duquesne fans think they're going to be better off without Everhart longer term?
