This team is on a very nice upswing. Its stock price took a huge hit over Thanksgiving, when the Musketeers blew a big second-half lead against Iowa and then lost all three of their games at the Battle 4 Atlantis. Well guess what: They haven't lost since, and their wins include a 17-point rout of rival Cincinnati, a tough road win at Alabama and a 2-0 start in the Big East with home wins over St. John's and Butler. Xavier has a solid point guard in Semaj Christon and serviceable post scorer in Matt Stainbrook. All the Musketeers needed was to get their confidence back, and I think they've gotten it.
