We are preparing for a basketball season like no other. The landscape of the game has been completely changed by a global pandemic that ended last season prematurely. Still, Xavier basketball is carrying on this year and, in the interest of being a pleasant distracting from the constant drip feed of bad news that everyone is subjected to, we’re previewing this season as if it were any other. Visit/bookmark this page for constant updates to our team, player, and opponent previews, as well as articles about how Covid-19 will impact this season moving forward.
