    Fans will see the throwback logos for both teams, including the Musketeer Running Man, and both teams will be wearing throwback uniforms for this game as part of the ongoing celebration of the 40-year anniversary of the BIG EAST Conference. Xavier will also be honoring its first-ever NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 team at halftime, the 1990 team that defeated Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo and the Georgetown Hoyas in the NCAA Second Round to earn XU's spot in the Sweet 16.

    I know I am in the minority of X fans on decor but as I lived thought the Gillen and early Prosser years, those uniforms were damn ugly. Thank God for tha A 10 and changing the logo to be crisp and sharp.

    XUKeith, I know we are in the minority but I’ve never been a fan of those unis. That being said let’s get a win.

    Hope our guys don’t take Providence too lightly.

    They just had two very impressive back to back wins over Butler and Creighton.

    Gotta get it going early once again and crank up that lead.

    A key to this or any BE game is avoiding your star players getting 2 quick fouls in the 1st few minutes of the game. In the second half, avoid getting 4 fouls on your star players prior to the last minute or two of regulation. We don't have the depth to survive more than one player in these bad foul situations. We don't have consistent depth to survive even one player in bad foul situations. We need 8 players to produce near their peak to win games like Providence this Saturday.
