Favorite Muskies of the past 10 seasons - Justin Cage

We're counting down our top 5 favorite Muskies of the past 10 seasons and this guy was an easy choice. Justin Cage! Cage played 2003-2004 through 2006-2007. In short, he was THE MAN! He managed to start half the games as a Freshman and then EVERY game the rest of his career at X! In total, he started 113 of 131 games.

Cage's Freshman year was a memorable one for Muskies fans. X crushed the #1 team in the country, St. Joe's, en route to winning the A10 Tournament and then beat Louisville, Mississippi State, and Texas in the Big Dance before narrowly losing to #1 seed Duke in the Elite 8. His Senior year ended on a sour note for us all as the Muskies fell to #1 seed Ohio State in Round 2 of the tourney. Ohio State went all the way to the title game before losing to Florida.

Cage was the model of consistency over his 4 years at Xavier, averaging more than 10 points a game for his last 3 seasons. He finished with a shooting percentage of 54.3%, 1,181 points and 641 rebounds. Never overly flashy, never putting himself before the team, he is one of the all-time Xavier greats in my mind. Thanks Justin!
