Muskies fall again...

Posted by Josh on Friday, January 27, 2012 Under: Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc.
Well, we won 4 in a row and now we've lost back-to-back games.  Despite Lyons and Holloway almost getting 50 points between the two of them, we lost to St. Louis.  It was a very depressing game to watch.  We were down big after giving up several wide open 3s and then had to fight back the whole game.  We tied it at 50 but couldn't pull out the win.  Some discouraging notes about this loss...
- This marks the 3rd loss of the year at Cintas.  In the 4 previous seasons, we had a total of 3 losses at Cintas.
- This also gives us 3 A-10 losses.  We lost at total of 3 A-10 games over the last 2 years in regular season play.
- The lost ends our the best A10 conference home winning streak at 43 games.  It was quite a streak; a shame to see it end.

Want more depressing news?  No?  Well, here it is.  We are now behind 6 teams in the A-10 standings and 3 of the 6 hold tie-breakers over us because XU has lost to them.  Of our final 9 A-10 games, 5 are on the road.

We have to shape up soon or we will have gone from hopes of a deep March run to hoping to just make the tourney.

Go Muskies!
