Muskies battle with Dayton is almost here...

I'm anxiously awaiting this game.....as far as earning an at-large bid to the Big Dance goes, I think it's a safe bet that the loser of this game is eliminated from being in that debate.

We all know that Xavier has won exactly ZERO A-10 tournaments since the tourney moved to Atlantic City.  All 3 Philly teams are solid this year and I don't want to have to play any of them in their backyard in that tourney.  So, let's take care of business here.

Came across an interesting statistic.  In Dayton's last 13 games, they've out-rebounded their opponents 12 times and tied they're opponents in rebounds in the other game.  The Muskies, on the other hand, have been very inconsistent on the glass.  Our rebounding margins in the last 10 games: +11, +2, -6, -12, Even, -4, +3, +3, +17, -11.  As you've probably guessed, the -12 and -11 were losses (Dayton and Temple).  We have to keep our focus and play even with Dayton on the glass this time around.  While Dayton's rebounding has been good, they are giving up a pretty high FG% on D, 45.4% over their last 5 games, compared to Xavier's D at 40.4%. Getting Kenny in the scoring column early and playing some up-tempo ball when Kenny's on the bench could become a big factor in delivering a Muskies win.

Let's do this! 

Go Muskies!!! BEAT DAYTON!
