    Xavier 91 Marquette 87

    Big win in Milwaukee for Xavier.

    I will add, man, Marquette is fun to watch.

    Fun game to watch, but at some point X is going to have to show they can lock in on D to have the type of season they are capable of.

    I think I'd lose my mind rooting for Marquette. Rowsey and Howard take so many insanely tough shots I'd be exhausted by MLK Day. Fun in small doses, but seeing them shoot your team in and out of games in between media stops has to be a level of insanity I'm getting too old to deal with...

    Great game to see in person. I agree that X has got to be better on D. Btw, it is 1 degree here. It’s frickin freezing Mr. Bigglesworth.

    Macura just feeds off the anger of the opposing crowd.

    I agree with all the above.

    Very entertaining game.

    Free throw shooting (22 of 24) was one of the keys to victory.

    Completely agree.

    I will say this though: if I was a 16 year old shooter and Wojo offered, I'd say yes before he stopped talking.

    It’s a mighty fine university as well.

    X doesn’t play great D against small quick guards but their free throws, experience and depth makes me think they are a legit final four team. Time will tell.
