Corey’s Free Pick

Xavier didn’t defeat Robert Morris by a large margin, but that is mainly due to a completely new core playing their first game together. The Musketeers are built a bit differently this season, but they’ve got the pieces to get back to the Big Dance. Jacksonville’s season-opening test was too light to take seriously, so let’s see if we get a strong effort from Xavier here at home, and back them for this non-conference matchup. Give the Under a look as well, as the Musketeers have the length to be one of top defensive units in the country.
