Exactly what it says on the tin.

This is the first road game of the conference schedule. Xavier is undefeated at home this season, but their travails away from Cintas have been well documented. Next up is a DePaul squad that doesn't do a lot of things really well but is somehow tied for the conference lead.

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.
  • Matt Stainbrook, Trevon Bluiett, and JP Macura are all in various advanced stages of recovering from the flu.
  • Coach Mack experimented with a lineup featuring Myles Davis and Remy Abell splitting point duty with both Dee Davis and Brandon Randolph on the bench.

Of course, choosing who should play where and for how long is always something of a balancing act.

Get to it, Xavier fans.
