Great non-conference game tonight at Cintas Center as Xavier hosts Baylor at 6:30 on FS1. While I think the game will be highly entertaining, and there will be runs both ways as both teams have several guys who can make shots / plays, I look for Xavier to get their first-ever win over the Bears from Waco.

“Bluiett and Macura are two of the best players in the nation,” Drew said. “Both are extremely efficient and do it in a variety of way, and they set the tone. Inside they’re very physical. With 10 minutes to go (last season), we’re down one and we played a great last 10 minutes of the game. We need to do a better job on the glass and make sure we do a good job containing those guys.”
