I'll take it.
The perennial bottom feeders got off to a shocking start last year before winning only one of their last 11 conference games. Has anything changed for the Blue Demons?
James Farr could be great, could be average, or could be anywhere in between. Xavier's big has incredible tools, but he remains a tantalizing enigma.
Can JP be scouted out of games, or does his arsenal of moves exceed a defender's ability to counter him?
Trevon carried the load a lot of the time last year before he hit the freshman wall. This year he'll be doing the heavy lifting again, can he withstand the load?
LAJ took what few minutes there were as Dee Davis's backup last year, but what does his sophomore season hold?
If you saw Sean O'Mara play last year, there's a really good chance you saw him foul someone. Can Xavier's sophomore big cure his hacking ills and be effective this season?
The frontcourt has fewer questions than the backcourt, but that doesn't mean it's a settled situation.
A rail thin post player with a solid outside shot, Kaiser Gates fills the stretch four role that opponents have used to destroy Xavier for years.
Makinde London had a year off to contemplate life and take a developmental period. Now that he's eligible, what should Xavier fans expect from him?
Edmond Sumner played some minutes last year, but it remains a mystery exactly what he is bringing to the court this season. Could he be the answer for Xavier at point guard?
We'll get you prepared for how we're going to get you prepared; that's how into preparation we are right now.
