ASU is not deep at all. They only go 7 deep and several of their players played extended minutes yesterday in a game that was up and down the court. I can’t imagine that they will be able to sustain that against a Xavier team that can go 10 deep. Xavier wears them out in the 2nd half.

Take X and give the points....easy pickings IMO.

If X plays like they did most of the game against GW I think it will be close

Last night's game against K State was high energy. Should be a good one today and Hope we do well, but am fearful that our rebounding woes will sooner or later land us in a lot of trouble. So far we have mostly played substantially weaker teams and our poor defensive rebounding efforts haven't cost us any victories. Can't figure out why this is a problem, but it is!

This will be a tough one. ASU is scoring over 90 a game. I agree that 2 games in 24 hours and a short bench could be their undoing. Let's hope we wear them down and take home a perfect record for Baylor

Kodi Justice went 9/10 from the floor and 4/4 from 3 yesterday which likely won't happen again. They had periods of being very sloppy against k-State yesterday so hopefully x can force them into some mistakes.

This is a PAC-12 team picked to finish 6th in the conference though. They have real talent. X can not afford to sleep walk through this game like they did against Hampton and GW. JP really needs to wake up.

Kanter playing great.

ASU close on a 15-2 run to only be down by 2 at the half
X has their work cut out in the 2H
ASU guards have been too quick to guard
And Q has 3 fouls
Strong 1H for JP and Kanter
Tre had only 2 points so if his history holds true to form, then he will have a big 2H and looks like X will it need

what a pathetic close to the half. I love chris Mack but my god his teams love to turn the ball over, have prolonged scoring droughts, and give up lots of points at the end of halves.
