Muskies beat #15 SLU, Taylor dominates!

The Seniors stepped up huge on Senior night. I love it! Travis Taylor had one of the best Senior night games in Xavier history. Although X blew a lead late in the 2nd half, they pulled away to win it in overtime.

Taylor played 43 of a possible 45 minutes and had 19 pts, 19 rebs, and 6 blocks! Brad Redford had 11 pts on 3 3-pointers and 2 big free-throws down the stretch and Jeff Robinson had 9 pts and 6 rebs.

Oh, and in his best attempt to be playing like a Senior, Freshman Semaj Christon had 20 pts, 7 ast, 7 reb, and 2 steals in 42 minutes of play against the #15 ranked team in the nation.

Huge win by the Muskies on Senior Night. After snapping Memphis' 18 game win streak last week, the Muskies snap SLU's 11 game win streak. A bye in the A10 tourney doesn't look likely; they'd need a win at Butler on Saturday and some help. And winning the A10 tourney still appears to be X's only way to get a ticket to the big dance. But it sure was great to see the Seniors finish their careers at Cintas in style.

Go Muskies!
