Looking at just stats we should win by 10.

Stats are misleading here. They include the losing streak when Sumner went down. They also don't account for the difference in conferences.

KenPom, however, accounts for SOS (but not injuries, I think):

Since so far GU has underperformed offensively in the tourney so far, my gut tells me we don't win by that margin. Later stages of the tournament, you enter crapshoot stage where anything can happen. Hoping we do though!

The way I see it GU is due to hit offensively. They are too talented to keep playing the way they have on offense for the past few weeks. At least I hope so.

Good article on Blueitt including the video.

Bluiett is scoring 25 points per game in the tournament, and shooting an unbelievable 52 percent from the field.


Bluiett’s scorching half left Xavier down by just two points as they headed into the locker room, and when Arizona made what should have been a decisive run late in the second half, Bluiett was there to help get Xavier back in the game.
