Muskies win a wild one to open A-10 play!

Posted by Josh on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Huge win for the Muskies last night! Everybody stepped up to beat a very good Temple team by 5 points. We were up 20-12 with about 8 minutes left in the 1st half and everything was looking great. Then Temple hit a 3 and during the play, Dee Davis fell awkwardly on his wrist. He left the game and the arena to get his arm examined at a local hospital. The Muskies gave up their lead and then fought back to build one again, only to give it up again. Semaj Christon was cramping up a bit and for a ...

Temple beats X by 13, Sadness sweeps over Muskie Nation

Sorry for the delay in posting.  I just got home from Philadelphia last night.  As you know by now, the Muskies lost to Temple Saturday night.  Temple was shooting lights out from the start and we didn't look ready to play in that atmosphere.  The arena was very loud and we simply looked awful.  After 11 minutes, it was 21-6 Temple.  We played them even pretty much the rest of the way but the damage was done.  Every time we had a 4-0 or 6-0 run, Temple would make a big play to end it.

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...

Up and down season continues with costly loss at Memphis

Posted by Josh on Monday, February 6, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
We led by 11 with 6 minutes left and everything was rolling.  But the Muskies went cold on offense and Memphis fought back into the game and took it from us at the end.

It felt like we had that game the whole way.  A really tough loss to take.

Mack started Redford over Lyons likely as a statement to let the team know that the hardest working players in practice are going to start the games.  Lyons did get significant minutes though and scored 14.  Wells had a season-high 19 points and showed gl...

Scouting St. Joe's and the Annoying Hawk

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 

Before we get into the numbers, let's talk about how annoying the Hawk is... For those of you who may not know, St. Joe's mascot is a hawk who flaps his wings non-stop during every basketball game. He also does annoying figure eights on the court during timeouts. The Hawk flaps about 3,500 times during a game and has been at every game since the idea came about in 1956. That's annoying consistent.

The fans chant "The Hawk Never Dies" at games. Check out how the Temple students treated the Haw...
