The Musketeers were a bubble team for the NCAA Tournament, but they made it in as a #10 seed. Everyone knew that if Xavier made it in the tourney that they would be a difficult matchup. Why? Experience is key in the NCAA Tournament and the Musketeers certainly do not lack experience as they have been to the NCAA Tournament for seven straight years and eleven out of the last twelve.
Last season the Musketeers won their first two rounds easily, getting lucky in the Round of 32 as they had to face off against Lehigh instead of Duke. However, the tourney is full of upsets and the Musketeers suddenly found their selves in a sweet 16 dual with the #3 seeded Baylor Bears. The Bears and the Musketeers played a highly contested game, but it was the Bears that came out with the five point victory in the end. This was the fourth time in the last five seasons that the Bears had made it to the Sweet 16 of further. The musketeers’ best season in recent history was when they went to the Elite 8 in 2008.
Xavier has a few former players in the NBA including David West, James Posey, and most recently Jordan Crawford. Tu Holloway went undrafted in the 2012 NBA Draft, and Mark Lyons will transfer to Arizona to play his senior season. Guards Semaj Christon and Myles Davis off of the Rivals Top 150 Board will certainly help out the cause. The Musketeers play their home games at the beautiful Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
