got the 11 seed, as expected, although when you're an at-large bid and you're the LAST one called, it did get somewhat nerve-racking.

not a bad matchup vs Maryland at all.

6:50 Thursday in Orlando.

if the Muskies can get that first W, i think they have a good shot at either FSU or FGCU.

i'm sure the committee never once thought about the possible Miller/Mack matchup in the Sweet 16.

If it's a close game, I like Maryland. Melo Trimble is a guy who can close out a close game.

Point I was trying to make is that they made some runs out of that #10 spot (I was corrected that two of those runs came as a #7, which is the same game as the #10). The thing about playing Lehigh instead of Duke was just a fact, not a jab.

i can't name all 8 teams, but X is one of them to be in the NCAA tourney 11 out of last 12 years. that's a pretty nice run.

in regards to the BE tourney, for 4 straight years since joining the league, X made it to AT LEAST the semis of the tourney. on the flip side, Butler has yet to win a BE tourney game.

down 46-40, then end the game on a 36-19 run. that's solid.

O'Mara was easily player of the game. Bluiett obviously got going in the 2nd half.

gonna need a lot more out of Gaston and Jones if we want to beat FSU. Need Bernard to stay out of foul trouble as well. that hampered him a bit but he did have a solid line despite the fouls.

thought Q did a great job at the point. still need to fix the turnover problem.

let's get this, boys.

Honestly I got nervous for Xavier's sake after JP missed three free throws in a row. Was thinking collapse, but then a turnover on back to back posessions erased that thought.

I liked them switching defenses constantly

The team as a whole needs to fix the turnover problem, but Q isn't really part of the problem. He had 9 assists to 5 turnovers(1 of which should have been a foul) 9 assists to 4 turnovers is very good and way more than we should realistically expect from a freshman PG thrown into the fire halfway through the year
