Three keys


-Keep the ball moving. Xavier has assisted more than three quarters of their made baskets this year. It's one thing to be generous when you're up 30 on Morehead; tight games that would be big wins tend to breed hero ball. X is at their best without that.




-Crush the glass. Wisconsin generally concedes the offensive glass but crashes it on the defensive end. This is a game that could be determined by second chances, and Xavier has the horses to win that battle.


-Keep lifting. Wisconsin has some big dudes inside. Xavier has used the arc to open the paint so far this year; if they can get the clean looks they need to keep rolling with that, I don't see any reason to back off it.
