No Dee? No Amos? No Problem!

Posted by Josh on Thursday, February 28, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
With basically 7 players, the Muskies pulled out a big upset win over Memphis on Tuesday night!

Everybody stepped up huge in Dee and Landen's absence.

Semaj started off slow shooting but came up big down the stretch - 13 pts, 5 reb, 5 ast, only 1 turnover
Redford - 32 big minutes of the bench (only Semaj played more) - 10 pts
Travis Taylor - the man! Despite sitting a lot of the 1st half with 2 early fouls, 18 pts, 10 pts, 2 blks
Philmore - big game! 15 pts, 6 rebs, 2 blks
Robinson - 8 pts on 3/4 s...

Depleted Muskies host Memphis tonight

Posted by Josh on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Dee Davis is out tonight after colliding with a VCU player on Saturday. Landen Amos is nowhere close to 100% with a hip injury.

The Muskies play the top-20 ranked Memphis Tigers tonight, who have won 18 in a row and have a ton of talented players. Exactly the type of team we don't want to play with an under-manned roster. Memphis can score and score efficiently, averaging 76 pts/gm and 48% shooting overall.

Had we had a healthy Dee Davis tonight, I'd have felt pretty good about our chances. But...

VCU knocks out Davis, Muskies 2nd half lead vanishes

Posted by Josh on Monday, February 25, 2013, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
Saturday's loss at home to VCU is one of the roughest to endure that I can remember. A win meant that the Muskies would have knocked off a top 25 team and jumped up to 2nd place in the A10 with just 3 conference games remaining.

That seemed like it would've been reality on Saturday, with X up 17 with 18 minutes to go in the game. Then in a matter of minutes, VCU went on a 10-0 run and Dee Davis was knocked out of the game. Everything turned horribly when Dee was helped off the floor. Redford n...

Up and down season continues with costly loss at Memphis

Posted by Josh on Monday, February 6, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
We led by 11 with 6 minutes left and everything was rolling.  But the Muskies went cold on offense and Memphis fought back into the game and took it from us at the end.

It felt like we had that game the whole way.  A really tough loss to take.

Mack started Redford over Lyons likely as a statement to let the team know that the hardest working players in practice are going to start the games.  Lyons did get significant minutes though and scored 14.  Wells had a season-high 19 points and showed gl...

Muskies take on Memphis in hopes of big road win

Posted by Josh on Saturday, February 4, 2012, In : Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc. 
The Muskies finish their 3 game road trip at Memphis Saturday.  Memphis is 11-1 at home.  The one loss was against Murray State, the only undefeated team in the country.

The Tigers are one of the few teams in the country that can boast a top 15 ranking in FG% offense and FG% defense.  Pretty impressive.  Will Barton averages 18.6 pts, 8.5 rebs, and 2.6 ast per game and will likely be a huge factor in this one.  It's going to take quite a game for XU to win in this hostile environment.  Hopeful...
