Review of Xavier's Scholarship Breakdown

Posted by Josh on Sunday, July 24, 2016, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Thanks to Coach Mack and company, seems like most Xavier off-seasons are about reloading, not rebuilding. This off-season is no exception.  Practice for Xavier's 95th men's hoops team has already begun and new to the Musketeers this year are Freshmen Quentin Goodin, Tyrique Jones, and Eddie Ekiyor, as well as 5th-year Senior transfer, Malcolm Bernard.

Xavier has also received a verbal commitment from 3-start Small Forward Jared Ridder, out of Springfield, MO. Ridder will be a Freshman on the 2...

Muskies Sweet 16 matchup vs Sean Miller & Arizona

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
In an effort to get more viewers from noctural creatures, the NCAA last game of the night Thursday will start sometime around 10:30PM, maybe later depending on how late the Wisconsin/UNC game goes.

But that's a great complaint to have as it means our Muskies are in the Sweet 16 once again! Only Michigan State (7) and Louisville (6) have made more Sweet 16's in the last 8 years than Xavier has (5).  Xavier heads to LA to play huge favorite (11 point spread) Arizona and former Xavier coach, Sean...

Xavier hosts Lauren Hill's first collegiate game

Posted by Josh Bobinger on Thursday, November 6, 2014, In : Other News 
Most everyone knows the story of Lauren Hill, the amazingly positive, strong teenager who has terminal brain cancer but is living every day to the fullest.  The game that Xavier hosted on Sunday was one of the coolest things I've ever been a part of. The awareness that Lauren is raising for pediatric cancer is nothing short of remarkable.

Coach Mack describes Lauren better than I can...please read his words here:

Xavier survives with ugly win over Robert Morris

Posted by Josh on Sunday, November 18, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
It wasn't pretty but a win is a win, right? The Muskies held on to win 61-59. Robert Morris came out hot shooting 3s early on but Xavier's defense improved later in the 1st half and looked better in the 2nd half.

Justin Martin scored 10 points before the 10 minute mark in the 1st half and ended up with a career-high 17 pts, thanks in large part from going 4 for 6 on 3-pointers. Dee Davis scored 15 pts on 6 of 10 shooting and Semaj Christon had 12 pts and 6 asts despite still not being 100% hea...

Recruiting Update - Mack & staff come through again!

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
This summer, the recruiting trail seemed dry and hopeless for the Muskies. But all that changed very quickly. Last week saw the Xavier staff collect verbal commitments from 3-star player Kamall Richards (2013) and 4-star player Melvin Swift (2014). 

Today, the Muskies have added another, a 4-star PG out of California, Brandon Randolph. Randolph visited Xavier last Friday and saw the Muskies light up FDU in their season opener. The plan was that Rudolph would visit Missouri this coming weekend....

3-star 2013 recruit Kamall Richards commits to Xavier

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 
Chris Mack and the Muskies picked up a verbal commitment from a 3-start small forward today. Kamall Richards is 6'5", 195 lb and currently plays high school ball in South Kent, Connecticut.

He would join Jalen Reynolds and Myles Davis as newcomers next fall. Transfer Matt Stainbrook will also be eligible to play next fall.

Kamall has also mentioned that he is trying to get fellow teammate and a 3-star point guard, Shane Rector, to join him at Xavier next fall.

GO Muskies! The season tips off Fri...

Basketball is back this week!

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
WOOHOO! Saturday at 7pm, the Muskies play an exhibition game with Kentucky State.

Last week, in a closed-doors scrimmage with West Virginia, the word is that Semaj Christon and Dee Davis played well and that the Muskies led most of the game but lost by a few points in the end.

Expect a starting lineup looking something like this:
Guard - Davis
Guard - Christon

Forward - Martin
Forward - Robinson
Forward - Taylor

At guard, Brad Redford will play plenty as he, Davis, and Christon are the only scholarsh...

2 XU assistant coaches leave program

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, In : Recruiting/Roster Updates 

Sorry I didn't post this earlier.  There was a lot of speculation that these 2 were leaving, but I waited until it was official. 

Rasheen Davis took a position with Manhattan.  He is from the NY area so you would think that he wanted to be closer to home.  Davis is a great recruiter and the main guy involved in landing the #5 overall 2013 player, Chris Thomas, in next year's class.  We've heard from Thomas' camp that he still intends to attend Xavier in the fall of 2013 but there's a lot of t...
