Xavier 70-77 Villanova: Double recap

+

A game like that can provoke two responses, and sometimes both of those need to see the light of day. Was this a moral victory or a wasted opportunity?

Xavier has their work more than cut out for them as they face the best team in the conference without the services of Matt Stainbrook.

Xavier v. Villanova: Q&A Part One

6

Chris Lane from VU Hoops took the time to answer our questions about Villanova, and Bruce Springsteen, before the champions elect come to the Cintas.

How does Stainbrook's MCL strain affect Xavier?

1

Matt Stainbrook is Xavier's second best player, and replacing his minutes will not be an easy task. Coach Mack and the Musketeers have their work cut out.

The longer the wait goes on, the more Xavier fans brace themselves for the worst.

Xavier 62-71 Seton Hall: Recap

Matt Stainbrook got hurt, the offense was dreadful, the defense got beaten from deep again, and even Semaj Christon's heroics weren't enough. Goodbye, momentum.

There's not time for the full recap treatment, but no one wants to be left out of a win like that. Here's a few thoughts after today's huge win.

Just when you thought there was no more to learn, we combine with Big East Coast Bias to drop some more Creighton knowledge on you.

Forget about love for awhile, it'll be there later, spring is the time for basketball.

Fixing the Packline: Conclusions

1

The packline can work, but Xavier has to make adjustments to it. These three steps are the very first that must be taken.

Fixing the Packline: Part Two

3

Xavier's defense has come apart since Big East play began. We approached other packline defense aficionados to see how their teams were running the same defensive scheme.

Xavier's defense got a lot better, but a young man named Jalen Reynolds will steal all the headlines with his 17 point, 16 rebound domination of the interior.

It's an absolutely massive bubble showdown as the Musketeers meet the Red Storm tonight. Xavier has a matchup that they should like, but they must take advantage or they can watch their season...

Xavier 52-74 Georgetown: Defensive adjustments?

4

Shockingly, Xavier's defense let them down in a rout that severely damaged their postseason chances. With crisis time closing in, something has to happen.

Is it time to end the packline defense?

12

Xavier has played the packline defense since 2005. Facing better competition and getting destroyed behind the arc, is it time to make a change?

Xavier 83-64 DePaul: Recap

1

Beating DePaul was all but a sure thing, but Xavier tried to send a message with the way they did it.

Xavier v. Depaul: Preview

+

The Blue Demons are horrible in ways that you can't discuss with polite company. In a bit of break from the norm, the preview focuses on what Xavier needs to do to get this season back on track.

Xavier 72-81 Marquette: Recap

+

A terrible defensive gameplan, an egregious amount of turnovers, and a big early deficit doomed the Musketeers on Saturday.

Xavier 64-50 Butler: Recap

2

Xavier went to the Hinkle Fieldhouse and crushed a Butler Bulldogs team that mostly looks like it wants to be put out of its misery.

Xavier at Butler: Preview

6

Butler is far worse than they were when these teams first met on Jan 4th, but that doesn't mean Xavier can start looking ahead to that stretch run just yet.

Xavier 59-53 Providence: Recap

+

February really sucks, but thankfully Xavier didn't on Saturday. Semaj Christon's steal sealed the game, but he had help in the 39 minutes prior to that.
