    I agree with MOR from a post he made in another thread: this game could not be more important for how this team and this season will shake out the rest of the way.

    They need to bring it for 40 minutes.

    They need to execute - whoever is on the floor needs to achieve their primary assignment (not letting Steele and lineups off the hook here; all that stands).

    A big part of executing involves both energy and intelligence.

    Xavier must win this game in order for the narrative here to calm down - temporarily. And I fully understand why the narrative is where it presently stands.

    When Freemantle starts bricking his threes, I will tell MOR to throw something at his TV.

    Let's break this down:
    (1) Freemantle has a terrible three-point shot
    (2) he misses his three-point attempts
    (3) it wastes a possession for someone else and
    (4) he is not in the post to rebound his misses.

    That is double plus un-good. This basketball insight has been brought to you compliments of XavierHoops.

    Why???...I can't see us more than -2.5 against anyone, the way we've played the last 2 weeks.

    How the hell is this team favored by that number? Bookmakers are overestimating x or think the sharks believe x is good. Did it last game as well.

    Maybe there will be some Cintas magic and that’s what they are banking on.

    A blowout would be very welcome!
