#7 Xavier hosts #20 Providence

(Couldn't stop myself from posting the pic above, an old favorite!)

Xavier looks to keep a stronghold on the 2nd spot in the Big East while Providence is trying to avoid another loss after a rough patch of late.

Can we slow down Bentil and Dunn?  Expect Xavier to run a lot of 1-3-1 zone defense as the Friars are not a great 3-point shooting team and this will eliminate having to guard Dunn 1 on 1.  I would also expect a fast pace of play by the Muskies as Xavier's bench is deeper and can handle...

#5 Xavier (19-2) hosts last-place St. John's (7-15)

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
After Xavier's off-shooting night and loss to Georgetown, the Muskies have strung together a 3-game win streak and climbed back to #5 in the Coaches Poll and 2nd place in the Big East.  St. John's is still winless in the Big East but kept the game versus X very tight back in January at MSG. While they've been blown out by several Big East schools, they've kept it close in a handful of conference games. 

James Farr left the last game with a minor leg injury but did practice yesterday so expect ...

Muskies head to Marquette looking for road win

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
After the low of losing to Creighton and the high of beating Providence a la Dee Davis assists and Jalen Reynolds super dunks, the Muskies must focus as they go for a win on the road. 

Marquette is struggling this year but still a few tough out. Vegas has X as a 1 point favorite. They need a "W" to stay in the hunt in the Big East.

Let's go Muskies!!!

Gotta get this one guys! Let's GO MUSKIES!!!

XU hosts Providence for 3rd place spot in Big East

Posted by Josh on Saturday, February 8, 2014, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Xavier is trying to snap a 3 game skid and could REALLY use a win tonight against the team who started that streak.

Let's Go Muskies!

(My apologies for the lack of posts, pics, and general fun on the site the last couple weeks. My wife and I welcomed our daughter into the world. Xavier Nation has added yet another big fan!)

Xavier heads to Providence for Saturday noon game

Posted by Josh on Saturday, January 25, 2014, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
The Muskies have another tough road test at Providence. Providence beat up the explosive Creighton Bluejays last week and look to defend their home court again tomorrow at noon.

Two of the best scorers around will square off in this one, Semaj Christon for XU (17ppg) and Bryce Cotton (20ppg) for the Providence Friars. Should be fun to watch.

Let's go Muskies!!!
