Muskies lose in horrible fashion at Charlotte

Posted by Josh on Thursday, January 24, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
That was 40 minutes of ugly. Plain and simple. The Muskies and 49ers traded the lead for most of the game and X ended up losing 63-57. Semaj Christon and Travis Taylor were great - They each scored 18 pts, each had 3 steals, and Taylor had 11 boards while Semaj had 5. The rest of the team was apparently sleep-walking.

While Trav and Semaj shot a combined 17-32, the rest of the team shot 8-36!!! The foul disparity didn't help our cause. X was called for 27 fouls vs Charlotte's 15. And the 49ers...

Muskies hit the road at Charlotte, go for 5th in a row

The Muskies have not had a lot of success at Charlotte recently. Former XU coach and not Hair Club for Men member, Alan Major, and the 49ers have won 2 of their last 3 home games against Xavier. They are 9-0 at home this year and 15-3 overall. They come into tomorrow's game as a 3 point favorite over X.

Charlotte is heading to Conference USA next year so unless we meet them in the A10 tourney in March, this could be our last match-up for quite a while. The 49ers, like the Muskies, are a good r...

Kenny and Tu lead the Muskies win and grab the #3 seed

Posted by Josh on Saturday, March 3, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Senior Day was appropriately led by Kenny Frease and Tu Holloway.  Frease had 18 points and 12 rebounds and Tu had 24 points.  The team had 8 blocks and 3 were by Mark Lyons.

It wasn't all that pretty.  XU was down by as much as 14 in the 1st half before cutting it to 7 for halftime.  Tu and Kenny's play in the 2nd half got us the lead and helped us pull away.

The win, combined with LaSalle's win over the Bonnies means that the Muskies have the 3rd seed in the A10 tourney and a bye.  They will ...

Muskies pull out the win at Charlotte

Posted by Josh on Monday, January 30, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Well it wasn't pretty, but XU escaped Charlotte with a 4 point win.  They led by 4 to 8 points for most of the game but could never pull away.

Thankfully though, the 49ers defense receded more than Coach Alan Major's hairline.  The Muskies shot 49.2% in the win.  Holloway, Wells, and Frease scored in double-digits and Redford hit three 3s for XU.

Next up - road game at GW on Wednesday night.

Go Muskies!

Xavier travels to Charlotte in need of win

Posted by Josh on Saturday, January 28, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
This is as close to a must-win game as possible if Xavier wants to stay in the A10 title race.

Overall, XU has an edge over Charlotte in just about all statistical categories, but the numbers go out the window in road games.  The Muskies have to right the ship tonight.

By the way, is Norm the Niner look like a creepy old man eyeing his next victim or what?

Let's go Muskies!!!
