It has been ten and a half months since Xavier last won a conference road game, and all they have to do to snap that streak is go into the home floor of the #5 team in the nation and emerge victorious.
BOILERPLATE SECTION: everyone jump in with their depth charts in the comments; this is clearly becoming a thing. Be prepared to be respectful in questioning what other people put and in defending what you wrote. For what it's worth, here's some info that might inform your decisions:
- By now I'm sure you're aware that Sumner and London are both out for the season.
- Coach Mack has been talking about how bad the defense and effort are on the road and has apparently (or ostensibly) decided it's time to make a change; what that change is seems less clear at the moment.
- Brandon Randolph was a healthy scratch last time out, marking the first time playing time has eluded him all year.
- Xavier has been going with a one-big lineup about a third of the time since conference play began.

Unless Xavier makes the Final Four, they won't have a tougher combination of opponent and venue all year. Pick your lineups wisely.
