My Xavier Musketeers have made the Sweet 16 for the 5th time since 2008, which is great. But Scott Gleeson of USA Today ranked the 16 teams left according to their chances to cut down the nets in Indianapolis, and Xavier finished dead last. 16th out of 16. When pigs fly. Snowball’s chance in hell.
Here’s what I say to you, Mr. Scott Gleeson of USA Today:
Xavier may be at the bottom of Scott’s list, but I bet if he ranked the 16 schools according to their player graduation rates, Xavier would be #1, thanks to a dedicated nun named Sister Rose Ann Fleming.
