Xavier got some excellent news on Tuesday when it was announced that starting center Matt Stainbrook only strained his MCL.

Stainbrook landed awkwardly in Monday’s loss to Seton Hall, immediately grabbing his left knee and screaming in pain. It looked like the injury could be quite serious, but according to Xavier, he’s out for Saturday’s game with Villanova and will be listed as day-to-day after that.

“Everybody’s knee responds differently. We won’t know a whole lot,” head coach Chris Mack said.
