Xavier Team 96-Take Two!!

Xavier's Preseason Practices are demanding (physically and mentally) and detailed. Duration:2 to 2 and a half hours. Every drill is scripted timed and scored. Every activity is a competition. The pace of practice this season seems faster than ever with more material being introduced more quickly and earlier. It's a function of having heavy experience(3 Seniors and 1 Grad Transfer with 6 rotational players back from last season's NCAA Elite 8 Team 95) plus 3 advanced PT competitive Freshmen(Paul Scruggs,Naji Marshall and Elias Harden) Chris Mack's coaching and support staff has worked together for three complete seasons now. They know their roles and maximize the time on the floor.   Continue reading...

Xavier TEAM 96-First Take!!
Muskies' TEAM 96 launches full preseason practice this Sunday (October 1st). That's 40 days prior to the regular season Opener Friday night November 10th against Morehead State (OVC) at Cintas. Coach Mack and staff have 30 practices to blend six returnees from last season's NCAA Elite 8 TEAM 95 (Seniors Trevon Bluiett,J.P. Macura and Sean O'Mara, Junior Kaiser Gates and Sophomores Quentin Gooden and Tyrique Jones) with grad transfer Kerem Kanter and three Freshmen (Paul Scruggs, Naji Marshall and Elias Harden). The Xavier roster collectively has 41 games of NCAA Tournament experience. The three Seniors Trevon, J.P. and Sean have played in nine NCAA games each. That 41 games of NCAA exposure may be more than any other team in Division 1. I'm sure XU leads the Big East in that category.

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.
