I never liked the Bahamas anyway...

What a disaster of a tournament....after falling apart and coughing up what would've been a big win over #23 Iowa, X loses to Tennessee in a revenge game and then to USC on Day 3.

Free throws and turnovers continued to be a problem. Xavier came in 5-0, all wins at home, and leaves 5-3, with an 0-3 record in road/neutral games. NOT good for the resume come March! The good news is that there are a lot of young guys on the team and they will only learn from this. Hopefully it also lights a fire u...

Xavier begins Battle 4 Atlantis on Turkey Day

Posted by Josh on Thursday, November 28, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
The Muskies come in as a 5 point underdog against #23 ranked Iowa tonight. Our toughest game of the young season thus far. Iowa has dismantled most everyone on there way to 5-0 this year. The Hawkeyes are averaging 92.6 pts/game, 4th in the nation, while XU has only given up 59 pts/gm defensively. 

Should be a good one. Fill up on turkey and then cheer on your Muskies at 7:00 on Thanksgiving Day.

Round 2 will be Friday and X will Tennessee or UTEP at either play at 1:00 or 7:00

Round 3 is Saturd...

Xavier battles injures as Tennessee comes to town

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Dee Davis, Myles Davis, and Justin Martin are all questionable to play Tuesday night (and Landen Amos is out 4-6 weeks). Will the Muskies be able to handle a talented Tennessee team at home? 

Let's hope so! Check out the action on Fox Sports 1 if you can't make it to Cintas Center


Let's go Muskies!

2nd half collapse dooms Muskies to 3rd loss in a row

Posted by Josh on Monday, December 31, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
This is just getting too hard to watch. The Muskies finally make some free throws and go hard to the glass to dominate in rebounding but go on to blow a big 2nd half lead again! 

Other than Travis Taylor and Erik Stenger, I don't think anyone for Xavier can be counted on right now. Taylor had 12 pts and 7 rebs in 22 minutes of play due to foul trouble and Stenger had 6 pts and 8 rebs in just 20 minutes. We had 19 turnovers! Some of those were due to good defense by the Vols but many of those w...

Xavier plays at Tennessee, hoping to end losing skid

Posted by Josh on Saturday, December 29, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
The Muskies have depressed us to new levels in the last couple games. I forgot what it's like to lose. I don't like it!

XU plays at Tennessee at 6:00 today on ESPNU. Tenn is a 6 point favorite as they probably should be. They are 6-0 at home this year. One of the largest concerns in this one has to be rebounding yet again. While the Muskies have struggled on the boards, Tenn is out-rebounding their opponents by 7.4 rebs/gm. Neither team is an offensive powerhouse and both are good defensively....
