We finally know!

If you're reading this, I'm sure you're also watching the Selection Show. You saw the draw, but here's how the early numbers break down on that particular matchup for the Musketeers.


First round matchup
Xavier BYU/Ole Miss
BIG EAST Conference WCC/SEC
21-13 Record 25-9/20-12
No Auto bid? No/No
31 RPI 38/55
8 SOS 75/46
28 KenPom off. 9/22
55 KenPom def. 139/125
26 KenPom overall 31/44


Obviously, we will have a more full breakdown of not only this matchup but the entire pod that Xavier has found itself in, as well as a look at each region in the tournament. Knowing who  they will play will obviously be the first step there. The Musketeers have their work cut out for them if they want to advance to the second weekend, but if there's one thing we've learned about this team, it's that they are capable of playing well enough to beat anyone (except Villanova).

In the words of Bart Scott (and probably others), "CAN'T WAIT."
