No Semaj, No Problem! Muskies sets Cintas scoring record!

Posted by Josh on Saturday, November 10, 2012 Under: Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc.
With only 7 scholarship players available, the Muskies went crazy in their regular season debut, pouring on the offense and beating Fairleigh Dickinson 117-75! All 7 scholarship players scored in double figures. 

Highlights:
- Dee Davis had an unreal first half, 14 pts and 12 asts, and finished with 22 pts and 15 asts. 
- Travis Taylor almost had a double-double in the first half as well and finished with 20 pts and 12 rebs.
- Brad Redford was 6 for 7 shooting, all 3-pointers, and had a 4 point play, totaling 19 points on the night in just 17 minutes.
- The Muskies shot 70.5% and scored 117 points, a new Cintas Center record!
- XU out-rebounded FDU an unbelievable 41 to 8! Yes, 41 to 8.
- Xavier did all this and still gave the 4 walk-ons a total of 30 minutes of time on the court. Redford and Stenger played limited minutes due to cramping. And remember Semaj Christon didn't even play due to injury. This game could've been a lot worse, believe it or not!

The competition gets much better in game 2 of the regular season. Xavier hosts Butler at 4pm on Tuesday as part of the ESPN College Basketball Marathon.

Go Muskies!
