    Xavier second in every category gets one brief mention in the 3-point category (which would have been better had Stainbrook not made that one 3-pointer)


    Not surprising to see Kentucky last or second last in every category. Kind of exemplifies the difference in philosophy and approach of each program, of which I am thankful.

    Not to mention add this loaded class we have, and we have a really good outlook for the season. Sure the Freshmen will have some growing pains, but if they can develop towards the end like Q did, we might be in for a special March. Also, this is a promising tweet as well:

    I didn't think interior defense was bad last season, but it could always be better. Defending the three seems to frequently be an issue for Xavier teams. I also didn't realize that Goodin was playing as poorly as this made it sound. Clearly, he has room to grow and I'm confident he'll manage the offense better this year.

    These did not age well! Sorry I had to! I was reading Jay Bilas stating he was is pick for POY and I remembered someone being kind of down on Brunson and came back to look at the thread.

    I thought Brunson would have a really good year, did not think he would be POY but he is trending towards that now.

    This team is starting to feel capable of something that rhymes with Lionel More.

    Hahah if you said this a couple weeks ago you would have been crucified. It's still a long way until March, let's just keep improving, gel, and peak in March. I'd love to see Mack get a Final 4 in a record-setting year, WHY NOT SET TWO?
