Xavier puts perfect record on the line against Tennessee Tech

Can the Musketeers make it 5-0?

NCAA Basketball: Big East Tournament-Xavier vs DePaul Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Xavier Musketeers return to action Wednesday evening looking for their fifth win of the season as they welcome the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles to Cintas Center.

It’s been a weird year for Xavier so far, as they’re 4-0, but three of the four wins have been one-possession victories, including Monday’s 99-96 overtime thriller against Eastern Kentucky.

The Musketeers shouldn’t (key word: shouldn’t) have any issues with a Tennessee Tech team that finished in the bottom 50 in both offense and defense last season. It will likely be more like the Oakland game than any other game so far this season,
