As much as things change, they stay the same at XU

One year ago tomorrow Xavier lost to Pitt 60-55 in the NCAA East Regional Semi's.

Derrick Brown, BJ Raymond and CJ Anderson combined for 35 points and 20 rebounds in the game.

Raymond and Anderson graduated. Brown left early for the NBA. Sean Miller left for Arizona.

One year later Xavier is one of only two teams appearing in the Sweet 16 for the third straight year.

XU is led by Chris Mack, the only rookie coach in the NCAA tournament and newcomer Jordan Crawford, one of the most dynamic players in the country.
