“They call him the X Factor, but I thought Xavier Hansbro really was the X Factor today (Wednesday),” added Salerno. “He didn’t shoot the ball well (4-for-14 in field-goal attempts), but he came up with some huge rebounds late. “He had 12 boards (including seven defensive rebounds), and was a really huge part of this win.”
