Xavier is in danger of falling to the five hundred mark on the year and playing on the road the Musketeers have not been good at all as they are sitting at 1-4 on the year. The Musketeers are a team that has had a lot of close games on the year, but they have fallen short and that is because of the amount of talent the Xavier squad lost from last year and they are still developing the younger talent.

Georgetown has had some problems in the Big East, but even at a 3-4 record for conference play the Hoyas are still sitting in third place.
