    Hanson played at Columbia with Castlin. So he must be good. Can't believe he's not playing more.

    look at Castlin Twitter Feed..he is playing well in G league and has a 2 minute video that makes you wonder if it is the same player.

    At some point I would have been ok with Hanson getting a few game minutes (towards the middle of the season) just to see what he could do in a game situation. Maybe he could have given Scruggs or Naji a rest. Maybe he doesn't have the "refined" offensive game of Naji, but I'd be willing to bet he could have held his own in spots. At the end of the season, it was too late to try that experiment as we fought for our NCAA tourney bid.

    Just imagine if in addition to James in the 2018 class, X also had gotten Siddiq Bey to commit....

    All this, and Loyola still almost won the regular season MoVal and still had a higher offensive rating than Xavier. Oh, and lest I remind you that that offensive system has been to a Final 4? Hmmmmmmmm. Yeah, LOL.

    Nah, they were 57 spots lower on KenPom than X offensively. The numbers 87 posted were the efficiency numbers themselves. Loyola was a significantly worse team than Xavier this season, no matter how you want to spin it.

    They did go to a Final Four. But so did Shaka Smart. If memory serves, you don't think he's a great coach, do you?

    Stop blaming the players. It has nothing to do with them. With a relatively mediocre offensive rating of 103, it appears that Loyola doesn't run an offense that puts their players in the best position to score. That's the only explanation.

    Yeah. Adjusted Offensive Numbers- Loyola 103, Xavier 106. Same rating on Bart Torvik. Have no idea what you are referring to. I don't subscribe to KenPom, but I can see the offensive efficiency numbers and those numbers are accurate.
    Point being, Loyola players younger and not as good but more efficient than Xavier.

    Not blaming just fact. Younger players better coached. Loyola younger than Xavier without 4 stars, still more efficient.
