Cincinnati - Call it the Decade of Dominance. Call it the Decade of Winning. Xavier has come up with an interactive way for our fans to relive the magic of the past 10 years. Over the past ten years, Xavier Basketball has been synonymous with exciting, winning basketball that includes reaching at least the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 each of the last three seasons. Only Xavier and Michigan State can lay claim to that level success over the last three years. There are unforgettable highlights from nine NCAA Tournaments in 10 years that include four Sweet 16 appearances, including two that culminated in Elite Eight seasons.
Xavier has won nine Atlantic 10 Conference regular season or tournament championships during the past 10 years, including each of the last four A-10 regular season titles. This stretch has also included elite regular season tournament championships like the Puerto Rico Classic and Chicago Challenge and a long list of regular season classics at Cintas Center and on the road.
To celebrate these accomplishments, we are presenting the fans, with the opportunity to vote for your Top 10 games of the past decade. We came up with a list of 35 exciting games from the last 10 years, a list that could have been doubled in size. We have a photo gallery with a photo from each of the 35 games and short highlight blurbs on the top 35. We'd like to know what you think. Your votes will determine the list and we will unveil the Top 10 games with a video compilation during Musketeer Madness on Saturday, October 23, 2010.
The voting will commence today and run through Friday, October 15, 2010. To cast your vote, simply select the drop down box next to each game and rank your top 10. To celebrate your "Sweet 16" Musketeers, we will unveil games 11-16, the ones that just miss out on the top 10, on GoXavier.com with one game each day beginning with game number 16 on Monday, October 18.
