Xavier goes for 3-0 homestand vs Robert Morris on Saturday

The Muskies face Robert Morris tomorrow, a team who was blown out by Rider and Lehigh before beating Fordham by 16 to start the season 1-2. RoMo is a team that last year more or less lived and died with their top scorer, senior guard Velton Jones. That's good news for Xavier, at least it would seem, as Dee Davis shut down Butler's big-time scorer on Tuesday. Expect the Muskies to be playing tight man-to-man defense again to go for 3-0 in the season-opening homestand. It will also be exciting to see a healthier Semaj Christon, who had 8 assists in his Xavier freshman debut (a new school record).

While RMU usually has a solid team, this year they are off to a rough start, shooting just 32.5% from the field and 23% from 3-pt range. That's bad news for them when you add in that Xavier's defense is also allowing an impressive 39.4% from the field and 32% from 3-pt range.

Let's hope the Muskies tough D and RMU's offensive woes continue. Go Muskies!
