Xavier hosts #6 Nova on Senior Day

Xavier hosts #6 Nova on Senior Day
Last year, Villanova was 6th in the country in the final week of the regular season and came to Cintas Center and spoiled Xavier's Senior Day.  Today, hopefully only some of history will repeat itself. Again 6th in the country, Nova comes to X to play the Muskies on Senior Day. The game is nationally televised on Fox.

Matt Stainbrook and Dee Davis will be suiting up for what will be their last game at Cintas Center (unless we really fall apart in the final week and BE Tourney and end up in the NIT). While I've enjoyed their careers as Muskies, I'd REALLY enjoy if their careers ended with some NCAA Tournament wins! A win today would put Xavier in excellent shape to make the Big Dance and would certainly help their seeding as well.

Xavier students went on Spring Break starting this weekend. Let's hope a bunch of them stuck around to get loud and crazy to help defend our home court today. X is 4-1 against the top 25 this year, tying for the most Top 25 wins in a season in school history. The lone loss was against Nova. The Wildcats are a near unstoppable team this year, with a record of 26-2, and will more than likely be a 1 or 2 seed in the NCAA Tourney in March. It's going to take a monumental effort and probably a little look too. But anything's possible!

LET'S GO MUSKIES!!!

Muskies head to MSG to play St. John's
After two big wins last week, over UC and Butler, the Muskies have a quick turn-around and play in NYC tonight. St. John's hosts at Madison Square Garden, in a game that will help determine the final Big East tournament seeds. XU is in 5th place and St. John's is in 6th with just 3 games to go for the Muskies.

Let's go Muskies!!!

Xavier hosts #19 Butler in snowy Cincinnati
Fresh off a win over the Bearcats in the Crosstown Shootout, the Muskies have an even bigger game Saturday! The 2nd place Butler Bulldogs will be here for a 2:00 tip-off. Let's hope we again see the same ice cold veins of our Senior point guard, Dee Davis,that he showed us in the Shootout. Dee stepped up BIG time, playing all 40 minutes, going 5 for 5 from 3-pt range, ending with 16 points, 8 assists and only 1 turnover! (That turnover was BS refs! They called a very questionable double-dribble on Dee as his lone turnover).  

Even though Xavier's campus is closed today, Cintas Center will be open and the game is ON at 2:00. See you there!

GO MUSKIES!!!
 

Crosstown Shootout back to UC's Campus - Wed Night

Crosstown Shootout back to UC's Campus - Wed Night
After 2 years of idiocy, i.e. playing a game re-named the "Crosstown Classic" at an old dumpster arena downtown, the SHOOTOUT is back to where it should be...the college campuses. This year, it's at UC, and right in the middle of a war of a Big East season for the Muskies.  Gotta focus on this non-conference road game and take care of business before we get back to our brutal final stretch of Big East games.

UC is listed as a 1 point favorite at home. Both teams are coming off of disappointing home losses over the weekend and sitting on the bubble for the Big Dance in March. Xavier's play is all over the board so I would not be shocked by a 20 point win or a 20 point loss. Conservatively, I should say I'll split the difference and say the Muskies pull out a close one. But, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that our Seniors play like big-time Seniors and some of the young guys step up to earn XU a 10 point win on the road.

LET'S GO MUSKIES!!!
 

Xavier vs St. John's on Valentine's Day

Xavier vs St. John's on Valentine's Day
The Muskies are coming off of a 20 point win at Marquette and look to make it three in a row Saturday when St. John's comes to Cintas. Happy Valentine's Day folks! The game tips off at 12:30 and will be nationally televised on Fox.

The Muskies are sitting in 5th place in the Big East and right in the middle of the battle for a NCAA Tourney spot. Every game is HUGE now!

Let's go Muskies!!!
