Xavier Edges Dayton to Keep March Hopes Alive!!!

When it comes to rubber matches all bets are off and you can count only on pure mayhem to ensue. The northeastern playground of Atlantic City got all that and more as two foes squared off in a battle royale. Miles from the safe haven of I-75 the battle was waged. The first half was a disaster and looked as if the Dayton Dumpsters would again dash the hopes of the Musketeer faithful. I don't know what was said in that locker room during halftime but the mighty Muskies came back with a vengance. Tu and Kenny led the team in true senior fashion with 21 and 17 points respectively. The team that entered that left the court at halftime was not the team that stepped out on the floor to eliminate a 10point deficit and win the second half 42-31. The Muskies shot a lights-out 56% FG during the second half. The Dayton Cryers inched back to within striking distance and had several attempts to go ahead but their 3 point luck had run out. Lyons sliced and diced like a whirling dervish to add the final layup to put X up for good. Dayton tried every tactic in the book to stop the onslaught of Musketeer Madness including 3 pointers, pick and rolls and setting fire to the Boardwalk Hall (unverified information).

Tonight we dine on Billikens!!! More to Come.
