Favorite Muskies of the last 10 seasons - Tu Holloway

Posted by Josh on Friday, November 14, 2014, In : Muskie Recognition 
Tu Holloway's last year at Xavier was 2012 so we all remember the greatness of #52.  When a guy is a part of 4 tournament appearances out of 4 years, that speaks for itself. Tu was A-10 Player of the Year his Junior year and got snubbed in earning the same reward his Senior year (Andrew Nicholson of St. Bonaventure won).

His stats were some of the best in school history; 6th all-time in scoring, 3rd in assists; best career FT% of all time at 85.2%, and most career FTs made.

Of course we all rem...

Xavier takes on Purdue in first true road test Saturday

Posted by Josh on Thursday, November 29, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
How will this young Muskies team handle their first road game? 

We will find out Saturday at 2:15 on Big Ten Network.

I think there are 3 big factors that will determine what we see on Saturday:
1 - Hostile Environment - How does the team handle their first true road game of the season? They have yet to play in a hostile environment and Purdue and their fans will be out for revenge after their loss at Xavier last year. (If you don't recall, they were stomping X before a crazy comeback led by Tu ...

Will Mack make a late addition to this fall's team?

Posted by Josh on Thursday, August 16, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
We've been wondering all summer...what will Xavier do with the last scholarship opening for this fall?  Another high-schooler from the class 2012, a transfer, or maybe save the spot for an extra freshman next year...? 

When it looked like the first option was completely off the table, it might end up being just that.  Indiana had one too many players slated to be on scholarship this fall.  In a classy move, Tom Crean over-recruited this class and someone had to be squeezed.  Ron Patterson, an ...

NOOOOO! Mark Lyons is gone!

Posted by Josh on Sunday, April 22, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
That is according to this article posted today:
http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/blog/eye-on-college-basketball/18760052/xaviers-mark-lyons-not-returning-for-senior-season

This sucks!  It's a surprise to me.  Holloway, Lyons, and Frease were the top 3 scorers last year and all will be gone.

More on this to come.  Not good.

2011-2012 Xavier Season Wrap-up

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, In : Muskie Recognition 
Well, I kept putting this off...I was trying to forget about the loss to Baylor and probably trying to avoid coming to the realization that the season is over. 

The season certainly was a rollercoaster. Seven games into the season, I didn't think the optimism could be any higher for Muskies fans....then as we watched Xavier build a huge lead against UC at Cintas, an 8-0 record and a 20 point win over our rival was undoubtedly going to be boost our confidence even moreā€¦

Then of course, the fig...

#3 Baylor vs #10 Xavier - Preview Part 1

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
If you haven't heard this yet, it's worth repeating...Xavier, North Carolina, Mich St, and Kansas are the only schools to make 4 of the last 5 Sweet 16s.  That's pretty impressive!

On to our next opponent: Baylor.  To be quite honest, the 2 teams I would least want to play in the tournament, from a standpoint of matchups, are Baylor and UK.  And if we are going to the Final Four, that's probably who we're going to have to beat.  Baylor's big guys are very athletic.  Their combination of size a...

A-10 Championship: Xavier v St. Bonaventure

Posted by Ron on Sunday, March 11, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 

Several weeks ago I would have called you crazy if you said Xavier would be in the A-10 Championship game. Josh would have called you a vondrook. Last night's epic win against a good St. Louis team should punch the Musketeers ticket to the big dance. Tonight, we should solidify a decent seed and continue the run. First about last night. In nerve racking fashion the Musketeers were led by Tu and Dez who put up 21 and 18 points respectively on a night where Xavier shot 53% from the field and a ...
