Apparently no one at Xavier's graphics department was feeling up to a Gameday Guide, so here's all nine of Trevon's three pointers from Thursday night.


LIVESTREAM (FS1)


Keys to the Game:

- Remember how to rebound: Not a lot of exposition needed there.

- Make some more threes: Xavier without Trevon was 6-17 from behind the arc against UC. That's still not going to cut it. After the bigs wilted it is hard to continue to campaign for X to force the ball inside. This team's success may ultimately come down to finally making some shots.

- Forget Thursday: More than anything, Xavier can't get off to a slow start. The Red Storm are going to have a home crowd behind them and they are going to smell blood on the water. Xavier has to get rolling quickly or watch this thing spiral all the way out of control. Furthermore, showing some [radio edit] down the stretch would be nice as well.
