Saint Xavier (Ill.)


Saint Xavier

The Saint Xavier Cougars finished the regular season 30-2 overall, boasting an 18-2 record in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference.  The Cougars, led by head coach Bob Hallberg, are the number one seed in the Duer bracket; they will face IU Kokomo (Ind.) in the first round.  Saint Xavier is a perennial National Championship team, as they’ve made appearances in the field of 32 for over a decade straight. This season, the Cougars started out with the No. 5 ranking in the preseason Coaches Top-25 poll, and haven’t looked back. Saint Xavier didn’t lose its first game until Jan. 7 after winning its previous 16 games. The one thing that the Cougars have struggled with is deep tournament runs, with a majority of their appearances ending in first our second round exits. Last year, the Cougars were the No. 1 seed in the Liston bracket, but were defeated by the No. 5 seed Goshen in the second round by a score of 86-84.
