Of the #4 seeds, Xavier got hosed!

I posted on a thread earlier this week about Xavier's matchup against Portland State. It's going to be a good game, set to tip shortly. But, the more I think about it, the more I believe that, among the #4 seeds in this year's tournament, Xavier got hosed by the Committee.

#4 Washington travels to Portland, Oregon. #4 Gonzaga travels to Portland, Oregon. #4 Wake Forest travels to Miami, Florida. #4 Xavier travels to . . . Boise, Idaho??? Boise flippin' Idaho?? This is virtually a home game for Portland State. What advantage does playing there give Xavier, while all the other #4 seeds get easy travel?

What's wrong with this picture? And why was Xavier singled out for such shabby treatment? Anybody?
