This morning Sean Singletary may be second guessing his decision last spring to stay in C’ville. The Wahoos could do nothing, and we do mean nothing, to slow down a super hot Xavier team.
The Musketeers put up 61 points IN THE FIRST HALF. Sixty-one -- that’s a big final score total in a regular season Big (L)East game!
Xavier (11-3) opened with their biggest first half in 15 years and finished with a victory that will be a measuring stick. They tied a school record by making 16 3-pointers, and had seven players in double figures for the second straight game. SEVEN. Yike.
Virginia (10-3) switched from man-to-man to zone defense, but couldn't slow an offense that hardly missed. Xavier shot 64 percent from the field – a heady number when you put up 26 treys.
