But the famous comedian won't advance to the Sweet 16 with Xavier after they were stunned by Wisconsin on Sunday night.

J.P. Macura got Xavier rolling with 19 points off the bench, and freshman point guard Edmond Sumner had 19 points and nine assists as fifth-ranked Xavier got the win that had eluded it, knocking off top-ranked Villanova 90-83 on Wednesday night.

The Musketeers (25-3, 13-3) led most of the way in the first matchup of Top 5 teams since the Big East was reconfigured, pulling away at the end against the only team they'd never beaten in league play.

Villanova (24-4, 13-2) was the first No. 1 team to play in the Cintas Center, which opened for the 2000-01 season. The Wildcats couldn't overcome foul trouble or Xavier's balance, losing for only the second time in their last 18 games. >> Read more

Xavier is getting a player with a huge upside in 6-foot-10 Makinde London, according to Montverde (FL) Academy assistant Rae Miller.

"He's a stretch four man, he can play some five," Miller told SNY.tv. "He's a face-the-basket kind of guy, not a back to the basket. He can shoot the ball with range. He's a kid that has a very, very good upside.

"He's 6-10, athletic enough and he can handle some ball. He grew about eight inches over the last two and a half years, so he has some ball-handling skills, some passing skills."

Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes

Our colleagues over at Walter Football released their latest mock and, needless to say, I like it. They have Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes falling to the Giants at 19:

[sny-box]The Giants have a very smart front office. Like the Steelers, Packers and Ravens, they catch falling prospects. A player or two mocked near No. 10 overall will fall on Draft Day because that's what always happens. These intelligent teams will snag that dropping prospect unless there's something really wrong with him.

But Anderson will have to wear a medical boot to heal multiple bruises located on the bones of his right foot, according to his father, Kyle Sr. He initially sustained this injury during a 3-point loss to the Drew Gooden Soldiers in the semifinals of the Fab 48 in Las Vegas last July. He will wear the boot for a approximately 3-4 weeks.

NEW YORK - West Virginia's Devin Ebanks and Xavier's Terrell Holloway are thrilled to be playing in the Sweet 16 this weekend. Truth is, they are both thrilled to be playing at their schools, period.

Ebanks and Holloway, New York City area stars from the Class of 2008, both originally signed Letters of Intent to attend Indiana. But both - knowing that then Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson had already left one school (Oklahoma) for another (Indiana) - added provisions, saying they would be released from their commitment if Sampson were no longer the coach.

Their concern about Sampson proved fortuitous. Sampson did not leave for another school but he was forced to resign in the wake of a phone call scandal. Both Ebanks and Holloway were released from their commitments.
