    Noble Nine

    Congratulations to the Xavier University Men's Basketball Team for being one of the last nine teams to survive in the NCAA Tournament!

    This is a proud achievement capping an exceptional season of basketball that exceeded all expectations. The journey was highlighted by many huge victories, a second place Big East finish, four All Big East players, a trip the Big East Tournament final, and, most joyously, a return to the NCAA Tournament and run to the Sweet Sixteen.

    Xavier fans everywhere look forward to many more successful years with Sean Miller at the helm!

    Yes, a bummer of a night, but yes, for perspective, Sweet 16 is much more than anyone would have expected a year agoÖ

    Snipe is printing “Noble Nine” T shirts as we speak.
    He never delivered those “Final Five” ones though.

    100%

    Sounds dumb however this group is, I believe the only one to win a major tourney championship and go to the S16. Heads should be way up.

    Great season. House money and Texas just was so much better. Cocky group though but very good. Def rooting for Miami but Texas is good. Def hoping florida Atlantic cuts down the nets. Can’t stand Hurley, can’t stand the zags, Texas hell no. Creighton, Sam Diego state and florida Atlantic. Those are my teams. If Texas didn’t act like a bunch of dbags I would root for them.

    Come to think of it, Xavier-Florida State was the last game of second round. We could add 'Sweet Seventeen' shirts for that year.

    I'm pretty sure there were 2 other games that went final after Xavier's loss that year.
