Macura is their Grant Gibbs. If he is on your team, you love him. If he’s on the other team, you hate him.

X wins in a close one.

X is overrated. We win this game.

Desperate Xavier team at home gives me pause in thinking we win this one. They will not want to be on a three game losing streak after Saturday afternoon.

We do play well at Cintas, however. We have a .500 win percentage there since joining the Big East.

Our studs need to be studs tomorrow to win. It would be nice to have a Ballock or Alexander conference coming out game as well.

Be more physical in the paint and rebounds and we will have a shot.

We have to show up ready for a dog fight. This is the BE where road games can be brutal, and Xavier is a talented team desperate to end a losing streak.

Didn't Xavier go on quite an extended losing streak last season before the Big East Tournament before blowing up in the NCAAT?
Losing three in a row is possible for them because of last season's slump I think.

And I would hate Macura if he was on our team. I have disliked some of our players in the past who were hotheaded and I would definitely dislike Macura. He has the most punchable face ever.

I consider Xavier a new rival of sorts. No team in the Big East would I rather beat more.

I am not expecting to win tomorrow but I do expect a close game.

In advance of Saturday's game at #10 Xavier, take a look at Creighton's gameplan against the X zone defense, get an update on redshirts Jacob Epperson and Damien Jefferson's progress, and more in our new pregame feature "Lettin' It Fly."

(And don't worry, the Primer isn't going anywhere. This is a new feature from Matt D. that we hope to do before games if our readers enjoy it!)
