Though the American East conference is not exactly most known for it’s basketball teams the Stony Brook Seawolves are having a great season. They are on top of the American East with only two games left in the season. 

Xavier Unviersity Not Ready For March Madness

Although the Xavier Musketeers started the season off winning three of their first four games of the season they have struggled lately and probably should not get their hopes up looking deep into the big tournament in March.

The Musketeers do not look real impressive so far this year as they have an overall 12-8 record and would need to win at least 75-percent of the remainder of their season in order to make the tournament. Most teams that enter March Madness tournament or at least do well in it usually end their seasons with no more than 8-10 losses and even that is pushing it.

Cincinnati, OH - Sean Kilpatrick scored 25 points, as 11th ranked Cincinnati defeated Xavier, 60-45, at U.S. Bank Arena. It was the first meeting since last season’s ugly brawl. Last year’s 76-53 win by Xavier was remembered for a benches-clearing incident that resulted in ejections and subsequent suspensions for both squads. “Last year’s incident is something that isn’t going to happen again,” Xavier guard Brad Redford said. “I think that both of these teams have a lot of respect for each other.”,
