At 5-5 in conference play, Xavier sits tied for 6th, two games back of leading Georgetown. Creighton is struggling in the post-Doug McDermott Era, logging just one with in ten conference games. This is the kind of game Xavier has to win if they are going to be serious contenders for the league. Who should be the ones to get it done for Xavier?

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.
  • Sean O'Mara is currently wearing the golden jersey as the week's best practice player for Xavier.
  • JP Macura's minutes have gone down in each of the past three games, from 28 against Providence to 8 against Seton Hall.
  • Trevon Bluiett's minutes haven't taken a meaningful reduction despite the fact that he's now coming off the bench.
