Game this Sunday

St. Joes may or may not be without Nivins this Sunday. IF he does play he will be a load to handle. IF not then our chances are that much greater. A couple of interesting promotions going on this weekend. First we are going to wear throwback replica uniforms in honor of the 1958 NIT championship team. I doubt the shorts will be accurate but they will be auctioned off after the game to raise money for charity. Also there is rumor they are giving away a growth chart poster of Drew Lavender. It will be neat to add him to my Doellman and Sato posters. One day when I move to the hills and have a full finished basement I am going to have a 'Hall of Fame' room where alot of this junk and memorabilia I have collected in regards to XU basketball will be on display. That won't be anytime soon so when the day does arrive I will have plenty of 'stuff' to display.

Back to the game St. Joes also features great balance with five players averaging in double figures. With Anderson scoring his 1000th point against SLU our lineup now features four 1000 point scorers. Terrific balance to say the least. Seth Davis has this tabbed as one of his top five for the weekend and in his write up alluded that X could capture a 2 seed with continued strong play. That would be awesome and rarified air for us.
