Musketeer Club: Annual Grill Out Featuring Ralph Lee
The Musketeer Club is pleased to announce the 52nd Annual Grill Out on Thursday, September 14. This preseason tradition is a great event to come together with Musketeer Club members and fellow Xavier fanatics. The event will be featuring Xavier Hall of Fame guard, Ralph Lee, as the guest speaker. The cookout event will once against be held at the Evendale Shelter House and is set to run from 5:30 - 9:00 p.m.

Transitioning From Xavier TEAM 95 to TEAM 96!!
How do we meaningfully summarize The Muskies' 2016-2017 season and turn the page to 2017-2018? There were so many twists and turns and obstacles to overcome. The preseason predictions were exceedingly rosey(Top 10 nationally) in many way-too-early prognostications. Two veteran BIGS were gone(James Farr and Jalen Reynolds) and glue guard Myles Davis put himself into eligibility limbo. TEAM 94 had struggled down the stretch especially on defense. The high water mark was achieved in late February at Cintas with a dynamic 90-83 win over #1 Villanova.XU earned a program best #2 NCAA seed,but finished up 3-3 over the final 6 games with that crushing Round of 32 NCAA loss in St Louis to Wisconsin with Bronson Koenig's buzzer beating three pointer proving to be the final dagger.

Xavier Falls to No. 1 Seed Gonzaga in Elite 8 to End Season
The No. 11 seed Xavier Musketeers' magical and surprise run through the NCAA Tournament came to a halt on Saturday night in the Elite 8 as No. 1 seed Gonzaga controlled the game, winning 83-59 at SAP Center in San Jose. The Bulldogs move on to their first Final Four in school history while the Muskies season comes to a close, finishing with a 24-14 overall record. Xavier was led by J.P. Macura who scored a team-high 18 points and grabbed five rebounds. The Zags were led by Nigel Williams-Goss who notched a game-high 23 points. Despite the Muskies season coming to a close sooner than they would have liked, they have have a lot to be proud of having won three games over higher seeded teams in the Big Dance including victories against No. 6 seed Maryland, No. 3 seed Florida St, and No. 2 seed Arizona.
