Notre Dame to Face Xavier in NCAA Tournament

The Irish will face Xavier, an at-large team from the Atlantic Ten. They'll be playing in Greenville, SC on Friday, and should they win, they'll likely face the Duke Blue Devils.

Quick reaction? Very fair. I'm not sure this team has anything left in the tank, but the Musketeers aren't a nightmare match-up. Xavier is a good team that's been struggling since the brawl with Cincinnati, but they have two talented guards and a seven-footer. This will probably be close to a pick 'em in Vegas, and that sounds just about right to me.

Much, much more to come on the Musketeers.
