Three Keys:

- Stop Bliznyuk: Bogdan Bliznyuk uses 31% of the possessions when he is on the floor. He leads the Eagles in points and assists and is second in rebounding and field goal percentage. Heavy favorites lose games like these because someone on the other team just goes nuts. Bliznyuk would be the guy to do that for EWU.

- Make some shots: The reason Xavier is so high in most computer rankings is because they paper of the cracks with incredible team rebounding. It would be just delightful if they used this game to give themselves fewer rebounding on the offensive end. 32.3% from three, 51% inside the arc, and 69% from the line are not the shooting numbers of an elite team. The Musketeers should dominate on the glass all game, but making shots early would take a lot of the suspense out of this thing.

- Don't get hurt: The season starts in earnest in eight days when Providence visits. At that point, Xavier will shine up their tournament credentials during a successful Big East season, or they'll plunge onto the bubble with bad one. Watching Edmond Sumner wrench a knee tonight would be awful. Be careful with all that running and jumping today, boys.
