Second story I read talking about Xavier being without 3 players for the GU game. I may be wrong but isn't everyone going to be back by then?

Yes, unless the A-10 or NCAA decide to jump in late.

Very.

This is the 3rd time I've read this via various media outlets and its highly inaccurate(lazy?) reporting.

As long as they continue to publicize X w/o starters vs Gonzaga, it'll be a lose-lose situation when we play them.

Not good for the "rep" whether we win or lose. I'm sure they'll straighten it out soon enough...

I wouldn't worry about it. That X-GU game eons away in the media's focus on the future. I am sure it will be a feature fact when the game finally comes around. 'How will X respond after players being unavailable? How rusty will they be?', etc, etc.

I doubt the A-10 and NCAA will jump in and embellish the self imposed penalties. Although it is never publicly acknowledged, when a university puts in its own penalties, it's almost always with the tightlipped approval of both governing bodies. You rarely see embellishment. It's a well known PR stunt within college athletics.
