Taylor and Christon power the Muskies to victory on the road!

Posted by Josh on Thursday, February 21, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
The Muskies put together a solid 2nd half to beat the Rhody Rams 55-42. Travis Taylor was great in the paint, 13 pts and 17 rebs! Semaj Christon had 16 pts & 7 rebs.

No one else scored more than 7 for X but it was enough as the Muskies played nice defense against at already-woeful offense. The Rams shot just 24% from the field, and 17% from 3.

Nice win Muskies! Next up is a real tough one at home, VCU on Saturday at 2pm.

Go Muskies!

The Rams of the A10 - The Bad

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
The Muskies next play the Bad version of the Rams, Rhode Island. As you recall, X had a tough enough time playing the Ugly Rams, Fordham, last week. So, this could be bad news. While we pulled out the win vs Fordham at home, this one is on the road and the Muskies road woes continue (reminder - I hate you Dayton).

So what's the deal with Rhode Island? Well, since their fall from basketball respectability more than a decade ago, not much good has happened, unless NITs are what you're striving f...

The Rams of the A10: 1st up - The Ugly

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Over the next 10 days, the Muskies play the 3 Rams of the Atlantic 10, VCU, Rhode Island, and Fordham. These 3 programs have had very different paths to where they stand today. First up are the Rams with the biggest problems, the Fordham Rams.

X fans, consider this. The Muskies lost all 5 starters from last year and we certainly didn't have extremely high hopes for this year. However, X is a game out of first place although not good enough right now to be in the tourney picture. Not a bad seas...

Muskies beat up Rhode Island, first place battle with Temple next

Posted by Josh on Thursday, February 9, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Well, the Muskies started off a bit slow but then poured in on the Rams.  XU only gave up 17 points in the first half.  The Muskies then scored 57 points in the 2nd half.  After several disorganized minutes of reserves from both teams running around, the Muskies won by a final of 84 to 67.  Holloway had 20 pts, 10 reb, and 6 asts.  Taylor and Lyons scored 12 and 10 points respectively off the bench (Redford got the start over Lyons again - Mack has been rewarding the hardest working players i...

Muskies host Rhode Island tonight

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, February 8, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 

Rhode Island looks like a gimme game at first glance. The Rams are 5-19 overall. They started out 0-6 in the A10, but have won 2 out of their last 3 (the loss being to red hot Temple) and they have a couple nice wins. Their recent improvements were no doubt correlated with 2 mid-season transfers added to the team.

Andre Malone, who transferred in from Auburn, has scored in double-digits in 5 of the last 6 games. Jimmy Baron (yes, another son of RI coach Jim Baron) transferred in from Virginia,...
