Eggs has an offense that is as good as anybody’s. 3-point shooting, passing, offensive rebounding and shooting accuracy are outstanding. Souley Boome is possibly the POY in the Big East and likely a 2nd or 3rd Team All American. He’s a difference maker and makes them a serious threat in the NCAA Tournament.

Uconn was awful in the first half.

Xavier is incredibly talented on offense. I'm skeptical of them in the tournament. They're 93 in adjusted defensive efficiency. That doesn't tend to be a good formula for winning multiple games in the tournament. They're going to have a damn good seed though.

They are going to be a 2-seed or a 3-seed. Pencil them into the Sweet Sixteen or the Elite-8. They are definitely a Final Four possibility.

Jeez... I had no idea I had somehow stumbled over to Xavierhoops. Can someone point me the way back to the Bearcat forum?

What's next? Are we going to get all mushy-gushy over Miami?

Well you know, they did beat mighty UConn.

You know, that team that couldn't win jack squat in the AAC.

So yeah, pencil X in for that final four.

Bad defense and poor shot quality selection, yet still won....on the road....against a ranked team.....in conference. I'd take that right about now.

Everyone would. It's great to have some luck go your way.

We're discussing Xavier as a final four contender. My point is they really aren't. There have been 80 final four teams since 2002 (using that year because that's where publicly available kenpom data goes back to). Only 1 has a worse adjusted defensive efficiency than Xavier, and you have to go back to 2003 to find them (Marquette who had Wade).

Xavier is 92 in in adjusted defense. Only 3 of 80 have been below 50 in adjusted defense. You have to go back to 2011 VCU to find the last one (when they won 5 games as an 11 seed). Before that both were in 2003 (Marquette and Texas).

I'll definitely be fading Xavier in March. Maybe they'll get the same breaks they seem to have gotten so far this year, but I'm skeptical. There are some outliers, but balance is mostly what wins in March.

I don't think they are a Final Four contender either. I read the same article about Final Four teams and adj defense rankings.

They are ranked, about to be Big East champs and make the tournament. I'm sure any run they make would be icing on the cake for their fan base. Heck, We lived off those type results for 16 years!

That's all I needed to see to see them upset round 1.

If they get in the right region, they could make the Final Five.

They will hang a banner with great ceremony.

Apparently they didn't get the memo that "The American" was supposed to be the "Power 6" conference, not the Big East.

I'd just like to hang a Final 68 banner sometime.
