Muskies Roll Past Thomas More in Exhibition
Xavier freshman Naji Marshall led all scorers with 16 points as the Musketeers knocked off Thomas More College, 78-38, on Saturday afternoon at Cintas Center. Marshall added nine rebounds and two assists in the winning effort. The Muskies jumped all over the Saints from TMC right out of the gate with a 12-2 run and never looked back. The Muskies were playing without All-American senior, Trevon Bluiett, who is nursing an injured shoulder. Junior forward Kaiser Gates (13 points, 8 rebounds) and senior J.P. Macura (10 points) helped pick up the slack while graduate transfer Karem Kanter added 10 points and nine boards.
