    Only 29 total games next year. Odd.
    We've come a long way since my bench seat at the Fieldhouse!

    Pretty long break between Dec 9 and 22. I know it's exam week there but still.

    Wonder what happened to the ETSU/Marshall games.

    EDIT: Sounds like it was just a mistake in the press release. Xavier's posting a new, corrected one soon.

    Goxavier.com still has ETSU and Marshall listed when you click on the basketball schedule. So I'm not quite sure what's going on.
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    I can't wait to see the point spread against Marshall and bet on it against all my buddies in Huntington, I see them every couple of months and you could not say how thrilled I am about this.

    That one could be interesting assuming D'Antoni is still their coach. They were in a crazy game @ UC last year and played at an insane tempo (3rd on KP).

    Yup he sure is, and they run and gun the hell out of the ball, just jack up an insane amount of threes. Have a couple local guys that can stroke it (Jon Elmore, I remember watching my old high school play them in the regional tournament and he went off for like 35 while being double teamed). They will definitely be fun to watch, they had an article on the statistics and thought process from D'Antoni in Feb, pretty interesting read actually:
