Xavier

So, Xavier loses by 15 at home to Villanova, Villanova loses to Creighton in overtime, and Xavier moves UP to #3 in the polls?

What am I missing here?

A winning basketball season at UD this year.

Sorry to be so flip but that is my attitude right now. I'm more concerned about how UD can get back on track next year and become a bigger college basketball power in the long run.

You're missing very little.......which is about the difference between Xavier's and Nova's spots in both polls. Logic tells me that Nova's two convincing wins over Xavier should give them a boost over Xavier in the polls, since they both have the same record (25-4). Xavier, shockingly, is in sole possession of 1st place in BE and controls its destiny. Nova has a pretty crappy loss against St. John's (as does Duke), while Xavier's losses are all very respectable.

I wouldn't raise much of a stink over it since it's just the polls and the difference between their spots is fractional. It will sort itself out in the next 2 weeks. Xavier won't get a 1-seed if they lose to Nova for a 3rd time. But if they beat Nova in the BE final, Xavier will probably earn and deserve a 1-seed. Xavier is playing at a high level right now and is legitimate contender for a National Title.

Yep, just reading it. Imagine how I felt actually acknowledging it AND typing it.

Currently- Big East is 10x better than the A-10.

Before their move to the Big East, no idea, other than a much higher budget to pay recruits???

The Big East is better than the A 10 because their are to many schools in the A 10 that are in for a free rid. Until those schools make an investment to build a better program; we are fighting a losing battle. Xavier saw this and got out while the getting was good.

Kenpom has nova 2, and Xavier 13, and for what it's worth UD is 160. Let's worry about UD and not the Big E.

Well, wasn't trying to raise anyone's ire. It was really just a question of how you can lose at home by 15 and still move up in the polls, especially when the team that beat you turned around and lost to an unranked team. I would have expected them to fall, not rise.
