From highest of highs to lowest of low???

Postby Xavier2005 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:21 am

Well at the end of the regular BE season last year Xavier won the BE title and eventually received a number one seed in the NCAA tournament. And as of this date, today, Xavier is in last place within the BE. Also with almost no chance of making the NCAA tournament, unless they win the BE Tournament, which they have never done before. From the highest of highs ....to the lowest of lows in less than one year.

Last time I checked there are still 9 BE games left.
X very well might finish last in the BE but I'm going to hold off throwing dirt on the coffin just yet.
But lose the next 3, it's time to start putting the shovel in the dirt.

Well they lost game 1 of the next 3.
2 homes games coming up against DePaul and Creighton.
Not very optimistic that X can win those.

I thought it would be a tough year but didn't imagine this bad. I think 2 more wins might be an accomplishment. My hope is we avoid 20 losses

I watched most of the first half. After the fifth switch and Hankins getting toasted for layups by the Creighton guards, I turned it off. My impression is everyone was going through the motions and wanted to get back to Cincinnati to watch the Super Bowl or whatever....

It reminded me of the Missouri game.

It seems like every 50/50 or hustle play went to Creighton. The coaching wasn't much better than the play.

The season is not over till the fat lady sings........but she has been humming and singing very softly all season. Little hope left.

This team won't lose 20 but I would say the chances of finishing with a .500 or better record are only about 10%. I predict 3 more wins.
