A-10 Championship: Xavier v St. Bonaventure

Several weeks ago I would have called you crazy if you said Xavier would be in the A-10 Championship game. Josh would have called you a vondrook. Last night's epic win against a good St. Louis team should punch the Musketeers ticket to the big dance. Tonight, we should solidify a decent seed and continue the run. First about last night. In nerve racking fashion the Musketeers were led by Tu and Dez who put up 21 and 18 points respectively on a night where Xavier shot 53% from the field and a sick nasty 85% from the stripe. For a few minutes at the start of the second half Tu was unstoppable from the arc hitting 3 consecutive treys to further the despair of the Billikens. In the end it was the Musketeers who were victorious and stand to face the Bonnies tonight.

St. Bonaventure holds a 19-11 record and has won several close games in the past few weeks against UMass and St. Joe's times two. For the Bonnies this is it. The only thing standing between them and a trip to the NCAA tourney are the Mighty Muskies. The key to stopping them is simple. Stop Nicholson, who averages 18.2 pts a game and shots decent from treyville and the line. Hopefully the D sticks on him like fleas on a bonnie. So let's make a wolfskin coat for the long winter and ZIP'EM UP!!!!!

This picture above is the new ad campaign to attract people to St. Bonaventure. Be careful my little bonnies, its tough out there for wild animals.
