    Ha, seriously!

    I can't imagine the personnel nightmare of being a first year head coach with Mark Lyons and Jordan Crawford on your team. Tu Holloway wasn't exactly an easy person to deal with...

    That's the story he gave because it made him look better. And it's not like it was completely absent as a motivation for his decision, but the fuller story includes something akin to, "We need you to...

    I think it was a situation where the staff told Lyons what they needed out of him as a senior, and it was set up in such a way that they knew he wasn't likely to accept the responsibilities involved,...

    This is bullshit. Huggins does care deeply about his players, and they care about him. Obviously a flawed man, but that doesn't mean everything about the guy is evil.

    Chad Brendel said on the new Skinny podcast episode that he thinks he just saw the least talented team in the Big East, watching this game. The pieces fit together well, with lots of shooters around...

    And the game at Providence is just before that. They're not as good, but they're good enough to be a tough out on the road.

    My brother-in-law and his brother have always been a bit lax at what is allowed. One of them once played EIEIO, justifying it as a word from a song.

    There's always going to be times that a shooter is missed on the perimeter, and these instances are going to be remembered well when the resulting drives are not effective. In addition, the overhead...

    Welage gets a lot of plays designed for him, but he's frequently faceguarded. It seems that a lot of defensive game plans for Xavier involve denying the team's most dangerous shooter and challenging...

    Agreed, it is a sorry list, and the last 25 minutes are probably the best Xavier minutes this year. Some people are just acting like the fact that two bigs played together just under half the game...

    They also had two bigs for a good portion of that 39-22 deficit to start the game. Also, the only successful thing to happen this season? Both beating Illinois on a neutral court and beating DePaul...

    Yep. Georgetown was a good opponent to face with two bigs. There are a couple other opponents where it could work well too, but most Big East teams are perimeter-oriented.

    Definitely. However, I said this on Twitter, but I feel like it was garbage ref karma for St. John's after their overtime win against VCU. They clearly fouled the three-point shooter just before the...

    Is the administration support not there for Notre Dame football? Or is it a case of unreasonable fans wanting a stronger commitment when the level of resources dedicated to football is already high?...

    They are sagging off now for a late contest. If he stops shooting even when those shots are available, the defense will dig in even more and not bother to contest. People advocating for Q to continue...

    Yeah, just stop shooting threes, Goodin. You'll still be able to score in other ways when the defense completely sags off you on the perimeter. No problem.

    Yep. After rising to (IIRC) #157 in Kenpom adjusted defensive efficiency, X has fallen back down to #106. Obviously, #106 as an average still sucks. But considering where they were just a few games...

    I see your point, but remember, Goodin has shot a lot of bad threes this year (and some bailout shots at the end of the shot clock). He had a couple in this game and he had quite a few in the first...

    Half of D1 attempts threes at a higher rate than Xavier and half of D1 makes threes at a higher rate than Xavier. Those match up nicely. It sounds like the offense may be adjusted for the personnel....

    Agreed. Overall I think Goodin is a solid shooter on in-rhythm threes and the percentages will balance out in the end. I don't mind four or five of his attempts. Two or three of them were...

    Yep. I really like Castlin for making the right play at the right time for the team but not trying to take over. He is the definition of a good glue guy.
