    XU Women 2021-2022

    The Women got smoked by 20 in Memphis last night.
    This is Melanie Moore’s 3rd year.
    Are we concerned yet?

    It is worth noting that Memphis was picked to finish dead last--unanimously--in the AAC.

    I am sure fans are concerned. More concerning is the lack of interest the athletic department has shown women's basketball in the past decade. The team has been in the play-in round in the Big East tournament every single season since joining the league. Is this even an attractive job anymore?

    the women's program has, unfortunately, been a total disaster for almost 10 years now.

    The women fell to Utah last night, 106-71. The score was 86-48 after three quarters.

    Loss to DePaul 85-103 but lot to like. Intensity for the whole game. While they finished the half down by 10, it was Xavier who controlled the up-tempo pace and turning DePaul's press into transition opportunities ... I haven't seen this in recent Xavier WBB play. It was DePaul who needed the half time adjustment to fall back and zone up the 2nd half. The guards were solid with Clark quietly scoring 19 taking advantage of the transition opportunities. Townsend and the emerging play of Hayes give some credible offense down low.

    If you have chance to bring a daughter/niece to a Xavier women's game, this team has a lot of fun. Go X!

    For those more in the know, are the women making some strides? I see they are 6-6 and won their first be game against butler pretty easily. Curious to hear and hope they are starting to come back to respectability.

    A lot of damage caused by Brian Neil and his Staff. Along with Greg Christopher! Not an overnight fix.
    Be patient. This coach has a terrific personality who treats her players, staff, and fans with a Genuine Caring Attitude. Huge difference from the past! The results right around the corner. Go X!
    I see Neil is having his positive impact on Butler. :)

    Good to hear. Hopefully they can claw out 5-6 wins in conference and keep building for the future.
