Byron Larkin, Xavier's all-time leading scorer and color analyst on its radio broadcasts, disagreed with my suggestion that the Musketeers might prefer a matchup with St. Joseph's instead of Temple.
"I don't think so," said Larkin. "Either one would be a tough matchup for Xavier because they're so small. Temple's a weird team. You never know what to expect from them."
Hey, Larkin's the guy with the 2,696 career points. Not me.
St. Joseph's leads the Owls, 34-23, early in the second half.
