Oakland at Xavier: Three things to know

  1. Oakland posted a 13-18 SU regular-season campaign in 2019-20, a down year for the perennial title contender in the Horizon League. Oakland was a dismal 4-12 SU on the road last season, while going 16-13-1 ATS overall and hitting the Under 17-12-1 in 30 games.
  2. Big East representative Xavier was likely going to be an NCAA Tournament at-large team, but March Madness was sacked due to COVID-19. The Musketeers ended up 19-12 in the regular season with 12 wins in 18 tries at Cintas Center. The Musketeers were just 11-19-1 ATS, while going 17-13-1 to the Under in 31 games overall.
  3. The last time these schools faced each other was Dec. 1, 2018, a 73-63 victory by Xavier in Cincinnati, with the Golden Grizzlies covering the 17.5-point number as the Under (147) connected.
