    Xavier's Most Important Player this Season Is....

    Answer the poll and give us your thoughts.
    "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 Ö isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Jack Nunge gets my vote for this poll.

    The weakest part of the team last year was Post Defense and with Zach Freemantle being out for the next month or so, I have to defer to Jack Nunge. He's big and experienced at the high major D1 level. If the Post Defense alone is improved and everything else remains constant(which I think we will see improvements elsewhere), I see this team improving in the win/loss column significantly.
    Balls of Steele!!

    Great question. I voted for Colby Jones because I think if he makes the frosh to soph jump we all think he can, he has the potential to be our best player which would be saying a lot.

    I could see a vote for a post player. I could make an argument for Kunkel, bc if he can shoot better from 3 he would be a really dangerous player.

    I voted for Freemantle. His offense will be much depended upon. Other BE bigs will try and guard him outside and in.

    Agree, although hard not to vote for Scruggs.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    I don't think it's a particular player. It's Steele. He has the horses. He NEEDS to figure out how to use them.

    Went with Colby as well for reasons you described. Could have gone with Nate because being healthy, he might get to the rim more to go along with a great outside shot.

    Agreed, I think the same thing.

    However, if I could vote on the most important PERSON I would vote for Steele. He can either get the players playing together as a team or he can totally screw it up. Ultimately, I believe the teams success depends on that more than anything. There’s a lot of potential, but if the coach can’t develop it and utilize it properly they will not be successful.

    Skruggs

    He's often been our best, most consistent player. But he's never developed into the player he imagined, or the fans imagined. He has the leadership role once again. Whether or not he's the highest scorer, I expect him to guide these guys on the court and make sure we don't lose leads, and can close out close games.
