Austin: Cold Arena, Cold Start

By Jean Neuberger - March 17, 2007

Right now, this arena just got cold. When the teeth are chattering, that's just too cold!

The shooting has been just as cold, as Xavier is currently shooting 1-7 from the field, and West Virginia is shooting 1-8. Xavier's owning the boards 9-3 early, but they hold only a 4-3 lead with 15:34 to play.

The question of the day is what the heck is up with Xavier's mascot. Their nickname is the Musketeers, yet their mascot looks something like the Cookie Monster swallowing Mr. Peanut...or something like that. It's one big blue blob, that's for sure! Has to go down as one of the oddest-looking mascots in college sports.

Xavier has the ball as we resume play here in Austin.
