Xavier earns #3 seed and faces #6 Marquette Thurs at 9:30

Even with the injury to Stainbrook and dropping the final two in Big East play, Xavier finished 3rd in the conference. Not bad for a team picked to finish 7th or 8th by most "experts"!

Xavier takes on Marquette on Thursday night at 9:30 on Fox Sports 1. The split the season series with the home team winning taking both games. Xavier tourney chances are certainly not as solid as they once looked after the big win over Creighton...a win Thursday would more than likely put them in everyone's "at large" group of teams. A loss would make for a very dicey Selection Sunday.

The status of Matt Stainbrook is uncertain. I would imagine we'll find out more when we hear how practice is going in New Year on Tuesday. Xavier chance's are significantly better with The Big Stain in the paint against Marquette's big men.
