    I think if we can get 3 road wins we can get to .500 in conference. We need at least 3 tho. We have 1.

    I would be very surprised if we wont at Georgetown this year. Their freshman (Mac & Akinjo) are getting better every game.

    Much more sobering when you see the standings this way compared to two weeks ago. The loss at home to Marquette hurt Xavier, but the Providence loss REALLY hurt. There is a chance to offset that a bit this week with roadies at Georgetown and Creighton. Georgetown has been in a lot of close games this year, so it wasn't terribly surprising that they won at St. John's yesterday. Gotta wonder if they can handle prosperity at home, though. Creighton is also in desperation mode with home games against St. John's and Xavier this week.

    That shows in the starkest light how important this Seton Hall game is in the entire mix of things.

    I applaud you X-Band for providing this continued insight. This is a very useful metric, and it makes this board a better place.

    Seton Hall is shaping up to be a watershed moment for this team. Look at those standings. We take that one, and it opens up a wealth of possibilities.

    Dare I say the most important game of the season is upon us.

    Is it better to be 6th than 4th or 5th this year anyone think? To avoid Marquette?

    Maybe not I guess if St. Johns is 3rd and home basically. Guess we will know more about that though come playing St.Johns twice. We could play ourselves into #3. That seems like the plan.
