First, the news:
JUST IN: Xavier's 2020-21 season is over. The Musketeers will not play in the NIT, head coach Travis Steele said in a statement. https://t.co/YdmxFAWA0B— Adam Baum (@AdamJBaum) March 14, 2021
I'm not in love with this decision, but what the heck do I know? With a freshman season consistenting of just 21 games, I thought it might benefit Odom, Jones, and Wilcher to experience a little more college basketball. The coaching staff and program decision makers thought differently.
Now a season that started too late ends too soon. In the coming days, we'll have more coverage and analysis of what the heck that was we just experienced. In the meantime, I guess enjoy the tournament.
