    The Setting

    Xavier continues their 2018-2019 homestand when Evansville visits the Cintas Center on Saturday. Fans await word on whether Quentin Goodin will make his season debut, after sitting out the season opener on Tuesday. Xavier improved to 1-0 on the strength of Ryan Welage's 3 point barrage and strong interior play from Tyrique Jones against IUPUI. This is the first game of the Maui Invitational.

    Evansville enters its first season under Kentucky Alum, Walter McCarty. The Aces are predicted to finish near the bottom of the Missouri Valley Conference. In their exhibition match-up, they were paced by Dainius Chatkevicius, a 6-9 Forward, with 17 points. K.J. Riley, another Forward, had 16 points. Evansville shot 50.9 % from the field.


    What to Watch

    Xavier: How thee players continue to gel under Steele's system. Can Ryan Welage continue his second half hot hand? Tyrique Jones will face two post players who score. Will he stay out of foul trouble? Does Saturday mark the return of Quentin Goodin? Also, will Travis Steele be wearing a Hawaiian shirt?

    Evansville: How Evansville plays against Illinois. In their exhibition, Evansville played more up-tempo. Will, that continue?

    Last Game:

    Xavier won their season debut against IUPUI 82-69 on November 6, 2018 (Link).

    Evansville defeated New Mexico Highlands 83-61 on November 3, 2018 (Link).

    Evansville lost to Illinois 99-60 on November 8, 2018 (Link).

    What, no mention of the fact that this game is our first test in the super-exclusive Maui Invitational?!? Can't be undefeated Maui champs without beating the Purple Aces! Feel that Maui excitement Saturday in the Cintas Center.

    I do not know much about Evansville, except for a douche who used to play for them.

    (and why are the Aces purple?)

    It appears this is a new channel for us, as it wasn’t on my favorites and I had to search in a panic to find the game. I found it on FSSE (1729 on UVerse in Atlanta).
