Xavier's TEAM 95 Goes Public!!
It's officially a mini-tradition now. For the third straight year, Muskie basketball players and staff split up into Blue and White teams and played softball on a steamy summer day at Hayden Field just off Victory Parkway. Team building was the main purpose. Mission accomplished!!! Myles Davis captained the White team and smartly made last year's MVP J.P. Macura his Number One Draft choice. J.P. has all the moves and moxie of a true softball player. He vacuumed up the ball at shortstop, patrolled short center field like Billy Hamilton, jacked an opposite field inside the park homer to right and clubbed a towering fly ball to the base of the left field wall. Myles and Kaiser Gates shared MVP honors though as the Whites rallied to clip the Blues 19-18 on a walk-off Gates hit in the bottom of the 7th inning.

Buzzer Beater Ends Xavierís Tremendous Season
In a season defined by their dominance, there have been pockets of disappointment for the Xavier Musketeers. Flat performances at Creighton, twice against Seton Hall and a stumble at home against Georgetown. The Musketeers had a tendency to start games slow and never really get things going to climb back into a game. And they hadnít really been in a close game all season. On Sunday night, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, No. 2 seed Xavier saw a close game. It came down to the wire, with a buzzer-beating dagger from the corner ending their season. Seventh-seeded Wisconsin advanced 66-63 with the victory.

Muskies TEAM 94 Exits NCAA Too Early!!
So I expected Xavier to win Sunday in St Louis over Wisconsin and advance to the Sweet 16!! All the pieces were falling into place nicely. Huggs and Press Virginia(#3 Seed) had lost in the First Round to plucky Stephen F. Austin(#14) as I had predicted here in this space and on Willy's 700 WLW Stooge Report. I gotta be honest!! Even a blind pig finds an occasional acorn.The rest of my bracket is a complete disaster!! Either SFA or Notre Dame would be waiting in Philadelphia. Both seemed beatable.
