    Xavier falls, 64-56 in OT (after tying it at the buzzer at the end of regulation on a nice step-back three-pointer) to wrap up the season 3-27. Most of the gang should be back next year.

    +1 agree it's better to look forward. Also, the Big East is a competitive women's league but it's not on the same level as it is in men's basketball. There is upward mobility in the standings with...

    While this is true, Greg Christopher didn't arrive at BG until 2006. Almost all of BG's women's basketball success came under Curt Miller, who'd arrived at BG in 2001 and was well into his rebuilding...

    In a nod to preseason polls being ridiculous, it's worth noting that X (8th) was selected to finish ahead of Marquette (9th) in the Big East preseason poll.

    They actually swept Seton Hall, but are 0-fer against the rest of the league so far. Must be a bad matchup for the Pirates.

    Women's team moves to 1-6 in Big East play

    The team has been more competitive in league games, including two close losses on the road (one in OT, and another by four points), but is still only 1-6 in the league so far.

    Chicago State went 1-29 last year, with the victory ending an NCAA-record 59-game losing streak. This game should provide a good opportunity to play a lot of the new players.

    Would need to see who's still on the roster to make any sort of guess.

    The nonconference record is rather meaningless if they don't improve on last year's 3-15 league record.
