Three keys:

- Play the first 15 minutes over: Xavier has led by 15 and led by 13 with five minutes to play in the first half of their games so far. After that, the wheels have come off. The Musketeers need to take the intensity they start the game with and transfer it to the final 25 minutes.

- Feed the post: Tyrique Jones has an efficiency of 160, Zach Hankins was 5-6 from the floor against Evansville, and the team as a whole shoots better in the interior than they do from the line. Get the ball inside and hammer away.

- Show that adjustments can be made: Early in Coach Mack’s career an idea dogged him that he couldn’t make in game adjustments once opponents knew what was coming. It’s fair to say that part of Xavier’s issue thus far has been a good start complicated by the other team adjusting. Travis Steele needs to demonstrate that he can make the mid-game adjustments that big wins need.
