    Best Memory of the A-10 Years that you witnessed (and regrets)

    Xavier joined the A-10 the year before my freshman year. I will never forget watching X play a very talented UMASS team at the Garden's.

    I won't forget clinching those A-10 Titles or the guys celebrating with the signs.... so many great memories...

    I do wish I had managed to make it to more away games to see some of the more "historic" venues of our conference brethren.

    2006 A10 Tournament in Cinci. Winning it all and rushing the court. Nothing beats that.

    Being extremely inebriated with some of my best friends, up in Gayton, for the A10 tourney when we DESTROYED #1 St Joes. Probably the most fun I've had watching a game away from Cintas.

    I was a freshman starting in 2010, so my Xavier fandom history doesn't date back far.

    My favorite memory might be before I got to durign the Sweet 16 game vs. K-State. Just an unreal game.
    My favorite memory at a home game is probably the comeback against Purdue last season.
    My favorite memory of an A10 game might just be any 3 of the Jimmy Carter wins.

    The UMass game at the Gardens.

    Shawnta Rogers hitting that game winning shot at Smith Center.
    Getting run over by GW in 2004 in the Smith Center right before we went on "The Run"
    Seeing James Posey jump from the foul line to dunk on GW player at the Smith Center
    Hammer hitting the game winner at the Smith Center and replaying that moment in a flag football game touchdown against GW alumni
    Telling Drew Lavender "I love you Gary Coleman!" and him smiling up at me after we won at the Smith Center where the students kept calling him "Gary Coleman."
    Winning at the Mullins Center after Sean Miller screamed at Josh Duncan, "Josh DO SOMETHING!"
    Thinking all of Jameer Nelson's boys were going to stab me and my friends after beating them in 2003.
    Larry's steaks across the street from Hawk Hill.
    Losing to URI in my only appearance at AC and then proceeding to drink excessively while screaming at Dayton fans in about ten different casinos.

    Yelling at Bryon after every road game on the east coast. Guy has to think I'm crazy.

    For me, it's a hands-down easy pick... watching Xavier beat... no... DEMOLISH the #1 team in the country in the Atlantic 10 quarterfinals in 2004. St. Joseph's was really good that year with Jameer Nelson and Delonte West. Xavier shot over 70% in the game and ended up winning by 20 points! Holy crap!

    To this day, that is still my all time favorite dunk. Posey is also my all time favorite Xavier player.

    I was a freshman and had just gotten hurt in practice. I watched that game in the Cintas training room with Jodi Jenike and the volleyball team. It was awesome.

    Favorite memory was in Dayton for the A-10 Tournament when Snipe unleashed a fart that burned steel. We were on our way out to the smoking area at half time, and he uncorks an unlicensed bio-chemical weapon. It was in the top 3 worst things I've ever smelled in my life, and that includes the time there was a decomposing body near Torrence Parkway.

    We're trapped in the walkway because of the retarded way that dump is built, so there is nowhere to go. We are just standing there in Snipe's stench trying to act like it was someone else. Then I looked around, and right behind Snipe is an 80 year old Dayton grandma. It's wall-to-wall people, so she's no more than 4 inches behind him, and she's short. Like nose within a few inches of Snipe's anus short. She must have felt the hot wind of hell blow her blue hair away from her wrinkled old face a split second before she began to sense her eyebrow hair beginning to dissolve and fall onto her watermelon stained red sweatshirt. The only saving grace is that the methane that replaced the oxygen in her brain probably prevented her from properly registering the memory.
