Waiting

In Xavier on March 23, 2012 at 5:43 PM

I’m too nervous to write anything this afternoon. In less than two hours the Xavier Musketeers tip-off against the Baylor Bears of Waco, Texas in the Sweet 16. The game is being held in Atlanta, Georgia, the site of Xavier’s first run to the Elite 8 in 2004.

I can only hope for similar luck this afternoon. Baylor is big inside and boasts a deadly perimeter shooter. Xavier’s two most athletic rebounders are nursing injuries. Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons, Xavier’s explosive guards, must carry this team to victory, redemption, and a shot at the Final Four. I believe they will, but, Lord, I can’t think anymore.
