    No 5 Xavier beating No 1 Villanova at Cintas was a pretty big Xavier day - not just the win but everything that it took to get there especially Bill Daily and Fr. Hoff.

    And of course, the biggest day of all for Xavier basketball is yet to come.

    I'll go with Miller.
    Hope is very high. But, if this season and next seasons are dissappointing( 0.500 BE and no NCAA) then it will be a dissappointing day.

    I have hiiiighh hopes, though.

    I think the Georgetown game was a big turning point. I was a young pup at the time and remember thinking there's no chance we're going to win. It just completely re-focused what was possible.

    To that point, where does that team finish in the current Big East? There was some great talent on that team - maybe not too much depth however.

    Honestly Keith, I think you could make a bucket of $100 bills depressing. I can't see a scenario where X is @ or below .500 BE and no NCAA short of some catastrophic injuries.

    Agree with you and 87 on 1990 Gtown game. Iíll also throw in the 1987 NCAAT when we beat Missouri giving us our first tournament win. I was lucky enough to be at the school for both. Guess it has perks to be in school for seven years! Ha!

    So you're sayin' therei is a chance.

    We alll want undefeated but these players have been dissappointing for many years. In Miller we trust but I don't expect Kunkel to be 1st, or 2nd team All BE. Just keeping it real.

    I donít have the history many on here do. West coming back was awesome. Player of the yearÖ.get his jersey retired while still a player was amazing. But, the early loss in the tournament hurts. I look at that year as an overall disappointment (despite the craziness of March). I was more disappointed that year than the loss of the 1/2 seed years. But thatís because we won a big east championship and accomplished something I never thought possible (a 2 seedÖ.then a 1 seed. Still crazy to think about)

    Miller coming back brings back hope. I donít know that people realize how close X was to completely falling off. Itís extremely difficult to rebuild programs. Especially in the big east. If we donít land Sean- and miss on the next hireÖtoast. Miller coming back instantly changes the trajectory of the program in a way nothing else could. Iíve never been more excited in off-season news than Sean coming back.
