This may not be the biggest non-conference game of the year, but it's definitely going to be the most intense. Xavier will head into a hostile arena to take on their crosstown rivals in a game both teams desperately need. Do you go with the veterans, or ride the talented younger players? Do you stick with what has gotten you here, or throw the opposing coach a curveball? You tell me.
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.
- Brandon Randolph has a quad strain and is day-to-day until that clears up.
- Matt Stainbrook seems to have shaken off whatever was bothering him a couple of weeks back.
- Trevon Bluiett has started the last two games at the four in place of James Farr.
