When Arizona’s coach Sean Miller left the Xavier program to join the Wildcats, he never would of thought that the two would meet in the sweet sixteen. Well that’s exactly what happened six years later! On top of that, Xavier’s new head coach was on Millers staff and still hold a great relationship.When Miller was asked about how he felt about facing his former team, the coach responded; “One of the things that makes this somewhat easier is I don’t have as many ties to the team at Xavier. It’s been six years, so Chris and his staff have recruited everybody. I recognized how lucky I was to be the coach there.”  

Musketeers: (23-13 SU,18-17-1 ATS) 
Wildcats: (33-3 SU,23-13 ATS) 
When: 10:17 PM ET, Thursday, March 26, 2015 
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California 
TV: TBS 

This will be Xavier’s third sweet sixteen appearance under their new coach Chris Mack. For them to reach here, the Musketeers had to beat a tough Georgia State team that had  the lead at halftime. Thereafter, Xavier shot 81.9% of their shots in the second half to advance with a 75-67 win. Forward Jalen Reynolds was the star of this match, scoring 21 points while hitting 8-9 shots.

The more experienced Arizona team will look to extend their 13 game winning streak. By doing so, they will enter the elite eight for the first time under coach Miller.  It shouldn’t be too difficult, but we should not underestimate this young Xavier team. The Wildcats will hope to seal this very early in order to rest their players for Saturday.

The oddsmakers all around the world consider this a lock for Arizona to advance. In addition, the public tends to agree with them as the line keeps going higher for Arizona to cover at all sportsbooks. I believe that Arizona will cover as well. The reason behind my decision is based on the fact that coach Miller knows the way Xavier plays and this Wildcat team is far more experienced than the Musketeers. I would give Xavier one more year before they make the leap to reach the final four.
