Semaj leads the Muskies to a win over Drake and 5-1 start

Posted by Josh on Monday, November 26, 2012 Under: Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc.
The Muskies beat Drake 74-70, again led by Freshman Semaj Christon. The game was back and forth all day until Xavier pulled away at the end. Drake then hit several 3s at the end to lose by 4.

After a sloppy, turnover-filled first half, the Muskies turned it all around in the 2nd half. Jeff Robinson had 0 points in the 1st half but then scored 13 in the 2nd. Justin Martin had 13 pts and 8 rebs and Dee Davis scored 15. Christon though was again the star of the show; today he had 16 pts, 7 ast, and 6 reb. Philmore added 10 pts and 6 boards off the bench.

It didn't look great at times but the Muskies out-rebounded Drake by 2, shot 79% at the line and shot 45% from the field while holding Drake to 37.5% from the field. Add it all up and that got the job done. The Muskies are 5-1. With all the question marks coming into the season, I think that's pretty impressive.

Next up - Saturday at Purdue - 2:15  Go Muskies!
