Xavier 73 @ Texas A&M 72 | 03/31 | 11:00 PM UTC

Xavier +5

WIN

ANALYSIS: I don't really care about this game and I'm not sure how much either side will, either, after watching St. Bonaventure go through the motions against Xavier on Tuesday. The Musketeers seem to have bonded since losing Paul Scruggs to a season-ending injury and since the firing of Coach Travis Steele. Jonas Hayes has done a great job as interim coach; probably deserves a full-time look if not for the school already hiring Sean Miller. A&M has looked dominant in this tournament but I simply think 5 points is too many to give. The SportsLine Projection Model has Xavier winning by two. Not sure I agree with that but it should be close either way. For what it's worth, Xavier is 2-0 vs. the SEC in this tournament.
