No Dee? No Amos? No Problem!

With basically 7 players, the Muskies pulled out a big upset win over Memphis on Tuesday night!

Everybody stepped up huge in Dee and Landen's absence.

Semaj started off slow shooting but came up big down the stretch - 13 pts, 5 reb, 5 ast, only 1 turnover
Redford - 32 big minutes of the bench (only Semaj played more) - 10 pts
Travis Taylor - the man! Despite sitting a lot of the 1st half with 2 early fouls, 18 pts, 10 pts, 2 blks
Philmore - big game! 15 pts, 6 rebs, 2 blks
Robinson - 8 pts on 3/4 shooting, including a big 3-pointer, 6 rebs, 2 blks

I want to add that Stenger played 10 minutes and hustled all over the place, getting 5 rebs and a block, and James Farr got in for 3 minutes and got 2 rebounds and a block.
 
Cintas was very loud at times despite the students being on spring break and there being what seemed like pockets of empty seats up top. Very fun atmosphere and big win after the deflating loss to VCU last time out.

Next up - X hosts UMass at 2pm on Saturday. Dee Davis' status is still up in the air.

Go Muskies!
