Muskies beat up Rhode Island, first place battle with Temple next

Posted by Josh on Thursday, February 9, 2012 Under: 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 in practice, not the most talented).

This puts Xavier at 7-3 in the A10.  Temple is 7-2 and awaits the Muskies Saturday night.  This battle for first place will be at 9pm on ESPN2.  Should be a great game.  Temple has put together a nice win streak and has played well at home.  I'm looking forward to making the trip to Philly to see this one in person.  Let's take 1st place!

Go Muskies!
