Thanks Tu and Kenny! Senior Night Saturday

Posted by Josh on Thursday, March 1, 2012 Under: Muskie Recognition

We will see the Seniors' last home game at Cintas this Saturday.  No disrespect to Andre Walker who has been a solid contributor this year, but I wanted to share a few quick thoughts on Tu Holloway and Kenny Frease.

Kenny is 1 point shy of 1,000 career points.  He will be the 50th Xavier player to join the 1,000 point club.  He's at 679 rebounds and 122 blocks for this career.  I can still remember where I was when he scored 12 points off the bench to help give us the win at LSU his Sophomore year.  Because of being such a highly touted recruit and his sheer size, he has received a lot of criticism over the years, but I give him credit.  He's worked hard and I can't wait to stand and cheer for him on Saturday.

Tu now has 1,682 points, just 8 shy of 10th all time at XU.  He's 3rd all time with 534 assists and has also grabbed 406 rebounds.  He's only the 2nd Muskie to get over 1,000 points and 500 assists (first being Jumpin' Jamal Walker).  We know about all the recognition he received for his great season last year.  He's received quite a bit of criticism himself this year, especially since the fight.  It's a shame that many outside of Xavier have an incorrect view of what kind of person he really is. 

Tu and Kenny helped Xavier win 3 A10 titles and make (at least) 3 NCAA Tournaments.  While I'm really hoping they will make it 4 NCAAs, let's be honest...we've gotten pretty spoiled in the last handful of years.  Yes, our expectations have been raised so we expect it every year.  But let's not forget, Tu and Kenny are two of the guys who made a difference in this program and are a big reason why we've gone from a mindset of "hoping we make it in" to "expecting we make it in". I'm going to stand and applaud Saturday for all they've done for Xavier University over the last 4 years.  I hope you'll make it and do the same.

Go Muskies!
