    In 2013, for the first time in seven seasons, Xavier failed to make the NCAA tournament. This year, in a new conference Chris Mack’s Musketeers got one of the last four bids, playing NC State in the First Four on Tuesday night.

    Matt Stainbrook

    Xavier got some excellent news on Tuesday when it was announced that starting center Matt Stainbrook only strained his MCL. Stainbrook landed awkwardly in Monday’s loss to Seton Hall, immediately grabbing his left knee and screaming in pain. It looked like the injury could be quite serious, but according to Xavier, he’s out for Saturday’s…

  10. Xavier frustrates St. John’s in crucial resume game

    Feb 25, 2014, 9:47 PM EDT

    Chris Mack

    There hasn’t been a hotter team in Big East play since late January than St. John’s. Steve Lavin’s squad was both clicking on defense (forcing countless steals) and on offense (consistently converting from two-point range), and the team looked like an shoo-in for an NCAA tournament bid. However, it appears the Red Storm has reverted…

    Xavier v Villanova

    At this point, we know what we’re getting out of Villanova. They are as tough as any team in the country, they are tough to run offense against because they are effective in different defensive looks, their ability to spread the floor with perimeter-oriented guards makes them difficult to defend and on the nights their…

    Marquette v Xavier

    On Tuesday afternoon, Xavier head coach Chris Mack announced that Jalen Reynolds has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team. “All of our players have responsibilities greater than basketball,” Mack said, according to Shannon Russell of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Any time those responsibilities are not given the appropriate attention, the first thing eliminated to allow…

    Facing a Georgetown squad with just ten available scholarship players, Xavier seemed poised to get back on track after suffering their first Big East loss at Creighton on Sunday afternoon.

    No Grant Gibbs? No problem. Playing their first game without the sixth-year senior guard thanks to a dislocated kneecap he suffered in a win over DePaul didn’t slow Creighton down at all. The Bluejays got a combined 37 points and 14 assists from Devin Brooks, Austin Chatman and Jahenns Manigat as they overcame a 12-0…

    All anyone is going to want to talk about after Xavier’s 86-79 win over Marquette on Thursday night is how the Golden Eagles appear destined for the wrong side of the bubble this year. And it makes sense, as weird as it sounds saying that about a team coached by Buzz Williams. Marquette is now…

    After going 0-3 in The Bahamas, Xavier needed to turn things around with the start of Big East play rapidly approaching.

    During their three games in The Bahamas last weekend the Xavier Musketeers were shorthanded in the front court, as senior forward Erik Stenger was unable to participate due to an illness.

    “The wheels fell off,” Xavier coach Chris Mack said to the media following Xavier’s 77-73 opening-round overtime loss to No. 23 Iowa in the Battle 4 Atlantis.

    GAME OF THE DAY: Villanova 63, No. 2 Kansas 59 In a day full of great games, Villanova knocking off No. 2 and previously undefeated Kansas takes the cake.

    Most of the teams participating in this weekend’s Battle 4 Atlantis left cold environments for The Bahamas, and while the change in climate is definitely a bonus it can also affect the players in a negative manner. That was the case for the two best players on the floor during the quarterfinal matchup between Xavier…
