  • Xavier have covered in just 1 of their last 5 games

  • The all-time series is tied 3-3
  • Xavier won 71-68 when the teams last met in March 2010

Pittsburgh Form

Pittsburgh come into this second round game having won three of their last four games.

The Panthers faltered late in the regular season as they lost three of their final five games, including their last two.

They bounced back in the first round of the ACC tournament with an 89-81 win against Georgia Tech, only to then lose 96-69 to #21 Duke.

Pittsburgh have won both of their outings since then though, beating Mississippi State 60-59 to book their place in March Madness.

The Panthers the advanced to the second round of the national tournament with a 59-41 victory over Iowa State.

Xavier Form

Xavier go into Sunday’s game in solid form having won recorded victories in six of their last seven games.

The Musketeers rebounded from a loss to Villanova by winning each of their final three regular season games.

They then made a strong start to the Big East conference tournament as they downed DePaul 89-84 and #24 Creighton 82-60.

Xavier came up short in the final though, as they were shut down offensively in a 65-51 loss to #6 Marquette.

The Musketeers were able to bounce back from that in the first round of March Madness though, beating Kennesaw State 72-67.


Xavier may have won in the opening round, but they have underwhelmed in that win.

Pittsburgh have a good knack for covering as an underdog, so we are taking the Panthers and the points.
