NCAA Tournament – X’s & O’s – Xavier

By Randy Sherman

Xavier scored on this play in the first half and came back to it on their first possession in the second half. Zone set play vs. 2-3. Best shooter is in the dead corner forcing X4 to closeout.

On the pass from 1 to 2:

3 crosses lane and seals X3

4 post hard to occupy X5

5 sneaks behind zone for easy catch and score.
