WHAT'S UP with Xavier?? SCOUTING Georgetown@ Muskies!!
Xavier's had 6 days away from game action to contemplate and recalibrate after that ugly 85-65 thumping at Marquette last Wednesday. Practices have been physical and competitive. Travis Steele declared all starting spots up for grabs after the Milwaukee mauling (XU was out-rebounded by 16 and allowed Markus Howard to score 35 points). The Xavier Way scoring system will be used to determine the rotation. Playing time will be earned w/ practice effort and sweat. The Muskies sit 12-6 overall, 1-4 BIG EAST tied for 8th w/ DePaul and one a 3 game losing streak. They look to flip the script Wednesday at Cintas vs Georgetown (12-7 overall, 2-4 BIG EAST in 7th place). Hoyas are 0-3 in BE road games losing by 16 at Providence, by 16 at Seton Hall and by 14 at Villanova.
