Xavier has a presence at the ESPN-2 showing of "The Basketball Tournament" going into halftime. Two young men were shown wearing Muskie shirts: one with 'XAVIER NATION' and the other simply with a big Xavier 'X' on it. I am not aware of any players we are looking at in that game, but it is a somewhat typical off-season event where there there is not much defense being played and a whole lot of 1-on-1 offense on display. I came onto this game late (after watching the Reds finally beat the Marlins). Therefore I know little about the players or the level of play. It's halftime as we speak and I am expecting family to arrive soon. So if somebody else can pick it up from here, I would be very much in their debt. (I'm a retired teacher, so money is not going to be a pay-back!)
I just realized that the people playing in this tournament are well beyond college eligibility. The winning team of the tournament gets a couple of Million bucks to divide among themselves.
Talk XU Men's basketball here...

Fathers James Hoff and Michael Graham, AD Mike Bobinski, and Head Coaches Staak, Gillen, Prosser, Matta, and Miller represent a Golden Era of Xavier Men's Basketball. I feel that new AD Christopher and Coach Mack will bring us to an even higher level!
