It's that simple. Defense wins.
At least that's what Sean Miller says. After seeing his Xavier Musketeers against Portland State, I don't think the Vikings would stand much chance against Xavier on their best day. But they were having a pretty good day, shooting 56% in the first half. That's when Miller said enough is enough, play some defense and win the darn game. After allowing 35 points in the first half, X clamped down and allowed just 24 in the second. That's how you cruise to a win. Portland still shot almost 48% for the game, but Xavier was deadly efficient on offense, shooting 54% for the game while committing just 7 turnovers. Nice start by the Muskies.
