Xavier a No. 1 seed in Mandel's latest bracket projection
March Madness really isn't all that far away now that February has kicked into gear. That's cause for rejoicing -- and so is this for fans of the Xavier Musketeers.
FOX Sports senior college sports columnist Stewart Mandel pegs Xavier as a No. 1 seed in his most recent bracket breakdown.
The Musketeers have quietly racked up an impressive resume, including a 5-1 Top 50 record and wins over seven currently projected tourney teams (Dayton, USC, Providence, Michigan, Cincinnati, Seton Hall and Butler).
Xavier is second in the Big East at 19-2. They're next in action Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on FS1.
