Xavier is undefeated. Evansville is winless. Should be fait accompli, right?

Super Bowl 50 - Carolina Panthers v Denver Broncos
I would assume some of these guys are also Aces.

Three keys:

- Get everyone going: Paul Scruggs, Zach Hankins, Keonte Kennedy, and Elias Harden were all relatively offensively unimpressive against IUPUI. With no JP or Trevon arriving on scene, all of Xavier’s various offensive parts have to be clicking before the Badgers walk into the Cintas on Tuesday.

- Shoot better: 31% from behind the arc isn’t good. That includes the 6-13 effort from Welage. Remove the clean cut sharpshooter and Xavier was 3-16 (18.7%). That’s awful. It took a heroic second half effort from a single player to beat IUPUI. Actually making some shots would go a long way toward avoiding that ignominy again.

- Crush the glass again: Xavier pounded IUPUI on the glass, racking up an offensive rebounding rate of 32.5%. That’s a marked improvement, in an admittedly tiny sample, over last season. Tyrique Jones was especially active, but Zach Hankins was also effective. That kind of relentless effort makes up for some ineffective shooting.
