Instant Analysis

To compete with Xavier, you have to be able to score with its elite offense. These Owls are capable of that, featuring a bevy of shooters and a true interior threat in Demond Robinson.

The Musketeers have tightened up defensively since Zach Freemantle got hurt, but handling Kennesaw’s slash-and-kick dribble drive attack will be a nightmare.
