Xavier 88-48 Norfolk State: Guess the trap didn’t spring.

This was a game that had some of the makings of the typical trap game. Coming off an emotional, highly competitive victory? Check. Facing an opponent who is riding high off of walloping some low majors and pulling off a comeback win over a mid major? Check. The game tipping at noon on a Sunday, when most people are still recuperating from Saturday night or in attendance at their chosen house of worship (or both)? Check. And yet, for all of those factors, Xavier not only avoided slipping up against Norfolk State, they absolutely dominated an opponent for 40 minutes for the first time this season.
