If you don't have access to any of the away games, Doc's is going to stream every game except @ Arkansas State.

That's good to hear...they had a good turnout last night, it's a pretty nice set up to watch with multiple screens.

Food was great as well. The tenderloin special hit the spot.

Agreed, it was good.

Looking at X's roster, I see Ryan Welage on there, that name sounds very familiar to me, did we recruit him at some point? I don't see an offer on verbal commits but that name sure sounds familiar. He was their leading scorer. We must have been completely asleep at the wheel to have not offered him if we didn't because he looks like he had a solid career at San Jose St. before transferring to Xavier. He apparently is originally from Greensburg, IN.

I'm like 99% sure we at least showed "interest" in Ryan Welage.

Ryan was at the last (or next to last) Wichita State game at the Ford Center.

I don't see this game as a large differential in score as the Illinois
game was.Illinois really pushed the ball up the court on us.
Xaviers last game was more of a grind it out victory.

Bonus day tomorrow. Got Cards vs. Cincy on Foxsports OH, and surprise, I'm also going to see Aces vs. X tomorrow on the tube. I think we'll see an improved effort. Walter won't tolerate all the turnovers, so the kids will be highly motivated to value possessions more. I also expect to see more of John Hall, as Walter "encourages" him to up his inside game.

Sheehan will have the red light and fire away. Evan plays before an OH crown and steps up. Riley scoots to the bucket.

If we hit our 3's, it could be interesting.
