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.
