LIVESTREAM (FS1)


Three Keys:

-One shot: Seton Hall doesn't shoot well, but they chase their misses voraciously. Xavier cannot let them get multiple bites at the apple. One shot possessions early will be a sign if Xavier is locked in. If Delgado, Sanogo, and Nzei are snaring offensive boards, it's going to be a long night.

- Protect the ball: On the other end, Xavier has lost some of their scoring punch. Seton Hall isn't great at forcing turnovers, but you can bet they will be all over Quentin Goodin to see if the freshman rattles easily. For the Musketeers to focus the offensive firepower they have left, they must not waste possessions.

- Get Kaiser involved: Some rebounding last game was a good sign, now Gates has to assert himself even more. He has the tools to impact the game far more than he has been this season. He needs to start doing it soon, or this team is even more thin than it looks.
