Muskies win on the road, keep pace in A10

It wasn't a pretty win, but a win nonetheless. The Muskies won on the road against Duquesne in front of a pretty sparse crowd. I'd guess there were no more than 3 or 4 thousand in attendance with about a third of us being X fans!

Balanced scoring was a pleasant surprise Saturday. How about these 4 guys stepping it up?!
Semaj 16 pts, 8 ast, 7 reb, 2 stl (and just 1 turnover)
Philmore 16 pts and 6 rebs, went 8-12 on FTs
Martin 15 pts on 6-9 shooting, 8 rebs
Taylor 13 pts on 5-7 shooting, 12 rebs
 
Dee Davis also added 9 pts and 3 ast. It was nice to see Philmore have a big game, coming off the bench and playing well in 25 minutes. The shaved-head versions of Brad Redford and Erik Stenger didn't score any points in limited action; hopefully as their hair returns, so will their offensive production.

Duquesne shot just 34% but it's hard to say if that was due to X's defense or their poor shot-taking. I think it's a bit of both. The Dukes seemed to chuck the ball up anytime they caught it near the 3-point line. They made 9 threes but attempted 33 of them. Derrick Colter came in as the Dukes leading scorer but was head to 1 of 12 shooting.

The win keeps X within 1 game of first place in the A10. Next up - Fordham comes to Cintas for a Wednesday night game.

Go Muskies!
