That putback layup by Kaiser Gates was his 8th 2-point attempt of the season. He's taken 49 3-pointers.

Tremendous week for Quentin Goodin. Had nine assists and zero turnovers against Baylor, eight assists so far today against Cincinnati. His size has created issues for Cincinnati's small point guard tandem; difficult to keep him out of the lane.

Looks like Trevon Bluiett's mini-slump is coming to an end. Eight points and two 3-pointers already. In his last two games, Bluiett averaged 10.5 points on 7-for-19 shooting.

Cincinnati has attempted five shots in the first six minutes. Xavier has made seven.

Impressed with Xavier's aggressiveness early. Not settling for perimeter shots, looking to attack.

NBA guys are intrigued by Xavier's Kaiser Gates. 6-foot-8, shoots it consistently from the perimeter, bouncy. Also really guards, versatile defender. Has 16 points, five boards tonight against Baylor.
