CINCINNATI (AP) Travis Steele knows the clear expectation as Xavier's next basketball coach.
"It's the elephant that's in the room: Go where Xavier has never gone in the NCAA Tournament," Steele said.
The Musketeers have never reached a Final Four. They had their best chance this season, when they were ranked No. 3 in the AP Top 25 - a school record - and won their first Big East regular-season title. They got a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time, only to lose in the second round to Florida State.
