Does Xavier pass the eye test?

The Crosstown Shoutout was a perfect example of the type of season the Musketeers are having.  Trevon Bluiett was red hot, making 10 of his first 10 shots.  Bluiett finished with 40 points, but Xavier still lost by 8 to Cincinnati.  Although Xavier has scoring punch in Bluiett, it misses the steady point guard play of Myles Davis, who left the program following a suspension.  To add insult to injury, Edmond Summer is out for the season with a torn ACL.  Xavier also obviously misses the intense play of Jalen Reynolds (now playing in Italy) on the inside.  Xavier just does not appear to have the versatility and balance that it had enjoyed over the past 5 or so years.  For that reason, we are flagging Xavier as a candidate for an upset round 1 of the NCAA Tournament.
