They're all big at this time of year, especially when you just lost in the mid-week. Last time these two teams played, Xavier stormed back on Providence's home court to take the game to overtime before falling just short. This time the game will be played at Cintas, which is not as comforting a thought as it was three days ago.
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.
- Xavier is ostensibly fit and healthy from stem to stern.
- Myles Davis called out his teammates for not being prepared to play the scouting report and not competing for 40 minutes, among other things.
- Coach Mack said Matt Stainbrook was fine, but he didn't look right against Creighton.
