    Being there when we won 3 in a row, 4 in a row and ultimately 5 in a row.

    Watching D West school dayton with 47 points.

    Watching us destroy the #1 St. Joes in the A10 tourney in Dayton, then beating Dayton at Dayton for the championship, and then finishing the season by going to the elite 8.

    Watching Justin Doellman and Justin Cage lead us to victory at US Bank in the A10 tournament. We X fans were rocking that place and it was an amazing win over St. Joes.

    No doubt. Being in that arena and seeing that total, unexpected destruction of the Hawks that day was unbelieveable. XU had to play the day before and we had to beat St. Bonnie's to even get to that game...and that was no guarantee. What was just as unbelieveable was meeting Kahns, Snipe and Freddy Garvin in the lobby after the game and the fact that they could even stand erect. I'm not sure that any syllable that emitted from their mouths was decipherable. In my usual generous mode, I purchased frosty beverages for them which still have not ever been repaid.

    Although I wasn't there for Saturday night, though, watching the Muskies extinguish all hope of the Cryers on their own wood was special too. Knowing that Pablo, Filthy Chilean and many others had the chance to court storm and stomp on the udump logo along with the vicarious experience of doing the same thing in my family room will last in the brain forever.

    Beating St. Joe's in the 2006 A10 finals. Justin Cage rushing out to the three-point line to block the Hawks' potential game-winning shot at the buzzer is an image that will is burned into my memory.

    Every year we held up the A10 champions sign and cut down the nets.

    The Jimmy Carter game every year.

    Tu Holloway and Co. beating everybody in 2011 except Charlotte on the road.

    Specifically the Duquesne game in 2011, as the Dukes would have been in 1st place if they won. Dante Jackson lit them up in a great game I got to attend at the Consol Arena.

    In 2007, beating George Washington by 29 at their place the year after they had gone undefeated in the conference regular season. I hated GW back then.

    Drew Lavender winning the MVP award at Dayton in that same year. It was the only time I went to Dayton Arena for the game.

    Senior Night my senior year (2009) when Xavier took out Dayton to win the A10 title

    The two that stand out to me is the game against Dayton where David West scored something like 752 points and the game against St. Joes in the A10 tourney up in the cess pool that is known as UD Arena.

    Hands down, no questions asked. Beating dayton on daytons home court for the championship, then dancing on the court and their logo.

    Apparently I ran to the bathroom to throw up, couldn't get into their troughs, ran outside and puked on the side of the dump. Gave a thumbs up to Xavier fans cheering the spectacle. It was my proudest moment. Ever. Ever ever.

    It's a known fact: you have to be hammered beyond all belief to tolerate being in that building.

    I'm proud to say that, except for St. Louis and VCU, I have been to every A10 arena venue- including the old bandbox Fieldhouse at Rhode Island.

    Will not miss going to Tom Gola's garage, but strangely, enjoyed visiting Fordham & Hawk Hill was cool. None of those places will ever succeed long term in those gyms though.
