Xavier Cruises to A-10 Semifinals, Temple Next

Honestly, it's tough to judge Xavier's performance since St. Louis is simply brutal. But X smoked the Billikens on the boards, limited baskets in the paint, and allowed 0 fast break points. Earlier this week coach Sean Miller said the formula is very simple for "X". Tough defense and killer rebounding.

Sean said this team isn't built to win run and gun type games, even though that's been a big part of Xavier's past.

In the A-10 semifinals X will meet Temple Friday at 6:30 p.m. The Owls were impressive in a quarterfinal win Thursday afternoon, drilling St. Joseph's 79-65. X defeated Temple in the only meeting between the teams this season, 83-74, back on February 5, at Xavier's Cintas Center.
