Said Wright in another article that Archdeacon evidently didn't read, "Some of us really hate each other," and "But it’s part of that being between the lines deal. I don’t want to shake their hands."

- The Diamond Head Classic field is set and, according to ESPN,  Xavier is one of the "other teams" in a field that includes K. State, Clemson, and Auburn. This is another great December grab for Mario Mercurio.


- Last year the Musketeers got waxed at Dayton. Shannon Russell compiled some of the players' thoughts on that and what the key was to winning at UD Arena this year.


- Jordan Crawford was traded from the Atlanta Hawks to the Washington Wizards. If you like the NBA, that's probably big news.
