Get well soon, Mman!

Hopefully your recovery is aided by a strong bounceback
performance by X. Things unraveled against St. John's last time in the paint. Pitino is probably going to ramp up the physicality and pressure. Our guys will need to be ready for it.

Very good defense to start the game. Ousmane is playing very hard and making it hard on Soriano. Nemeiksa playing well too.

Claude needs to get going. Hate to see Ousmane pick up his second foul. He was playing great. Need to keep Soriano quite.

Ousmane came to play. Hope he doesn't pick up a couple cheap fouls. My man Ciani got bullied by Soriano who by the way is setting moving screens left and right. Ciani needs to toughen up. He got worked. When Claude hesitates he struggles. We need a big half from him. Happy to see the guards helping out on Soriano. We need this game desperately. It's right there for the taking.

Claude is coming on. Hard to get 3 fouls in two seconds but Nemeiksa pulled it off. Swain has let his man beat him off the dribble 3 times where his man got all the way to the rim .Need some good minutes form Ciani

Nobody makes more careless silly fouls than Ousmane. It's a shame he was playing well. Have to like how we have turnes around our foul shooting the last 7-8 games. Mcknight is keeping us in it. Green with a TERRIBLE TURNOVER - FOUL.

Xavier's BIG O leads X to a win 8-0 run at the end
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Hell of a comeback game. The guards were outstanding. Ciani was much better in the second half. I'm sure the Win will make Muskieman feel a little bit better. Go X
