Xavier v. Villanova: Set Your Depth Chart

New, comment

The final home game of the season comes against the best team in the conference. How do you send them out?

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Big game. Big, big game. If Xavier wins this, all they have to do is execute against Creighton and an NCAA tournament bid is in the bag. A loss here and suddenly that trip to Omaha looks a lot more frightening, especially with MSG looming on the horizon. Villanova is a good team that can hurt you in a lot of ways; how would you line up the team to combat that?

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 is back healthy, but it was LAJ who got the big reserve PG minutes against St. John's.
  • James Farr's minutes have been down lately, but he's rebounding like a fiend; do you trust him against Nova's offense?
