35 71 144 441 | Xavier takes lead 73-71, with 44.1 seconds left (Winning score)


After a 71-71 tie, Xavier pulled ahead 73-71, with exactly 44.1 seconds left.

73+71 = 144
44.1 seconds...

12x12 = 144
21x21 = 441

Seventy One = 144
Catholic = 71

Xavier = 79
79th year of the men's tournament

Is it magic?

Remember, last year, Villanova's point guard won the Championship on April 4, after a record 44-point win over Oklahoma in the Final 4, in his 144th straight game, an NCAA record.

Steve Kerr, Arizona alumni, was there for the loss.  Foreshadowing?


Bill Murray, the Cubs fan (who won the championship), was cheering for Xavier.



The Xavier coach has a parallel to the World Series:
