Can Xavier get to .500 in the Big East? This isn't just a mathematical exercise. For Xavier to get a look at an at large bid they likely need to make it to 9-9 in their conference. Fail to do that and they have to hope the wins they do get are genuinely huge and outweigh the bad losses they would certainly take.

@XavierGrit has this path to X hitting .500

@XavierGrit posted what he thought was the most likely way for the Musketeers to do it. It involves, as you see above, a four game winning streak, finishing sweeps, and sweeping Providence. Can they do it? That's what we discuss on Banter this week.
