America's favorite Uber driver was dominant against Arizona tonight, scoring 17 points and claiming 10 rebounds. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to lead the Musketeers to a win. While Arizona deservedly moves on to the Elite Eight, we mourn the end of goofy-looking Matt Stainbrook's college career. In memoriam,…
Xavier's J.P. Macura took a basketball to the face. Here's the isolated crowd audio of fans reacting to seeing the replay:
First thought: Wait, are they really? There is such a thing as too much, right?
Cincinnati continued its undefeated run to start the 2012-2013 college basketball season with a 60-45 win last night over Xavier in the Crosstown Rivalry. Of greater interest than the final score, though, is that the game happened at all—and in such cordial fashion. Last year's UC-X game, of course, ended much uglier…
This is too weird to believe if we hadn't received multiple tips about it, and here's WLW 700 host Bill Cunningham on yesterday's program relating that he, too, had heard about Xavier president Fr. Michael Graham's bizarre behavior during the brawl that broke out in the Crosstown Shootout.
In sports, everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like people who say sound fundamentals are just as exciting as dunks. They're right....sometimes! Then again, sometimes lousy fundamentals can be exciting too.
The Golden Gophers have a championship-winning coach and solid team play. Xavier's Jordan Crawford dunked on LeBron. This one should get the Bradley Center rocking. Order a thematically appropriate sandwich and comment — pretty sure that's what Sean Miller's doing.
The clock inexplicably stops to give the home team extra time on their last possession. The refs huddle up and decide to end the game before the visitors can have theirs. You're damn right there's going to be controversy.
Once upon a time, Xavier coach Sean Miller did Harlem Globetrotter tricks as a 12-year-old, and ESPN reporters rocked the WKRP In Cincinnati Herb Tarlek sports jacket. It was truly sports media's golden age.

Storming The Floor looks at last night's Sweet 16 action.
There's something we absolutely love about this picture. No matter how well your team's doing, no matter how much fun your friends are having at the game, no matter how young you are and no matter how full of possibilities the planet might seem ... sometimes, when you're having a bad day, you're having a bad day.
Xavier Musketeers (29-6) vs. West Virginia Mountaineers (26-10)
When: Tonight, 7:10 p.m.
Now that we are down to just sixteen teams, STF will profile each Regional lineup to see how we got here, what the Sweet 16 really means to each participating school, and who has the best chance to advance to San Antonio. The first of two today, here's the West.
We had no idea there were so many Texas A&M basketball fans out there, but boy, has our inbox been full with people sending us the above photo. Yeah: That kind of looks like a foul.
Storming The Floor wraps up the first three games, the ones we were stupidly live blogging even though you couldn't see any of it.
