Sunday’s game of the day is Mississippi State/Xavier. This is a rematch of a December 13th game in Starkville. MSU won that one 82-70, and Xavier guard Romain Sato, who leads the Muskies in scoring and rebounding, had one of his worst games of the year – 7 points & 7 boards.

December 13th is ancient history for Xavier. They were coming off consecutive losses to Ball State and Indiana. Now they are riding a 14-1 stretch.
