Musketeers Comeback in Dramatic Win Over Friars
The Xavier Musketeers fought back from a seven point deficit it with 1:13 left in the game to knock off Providence, 74-73, on Sunday afternoon at Cintas Center. The comeback was capped by a 3-point field goal by freshman Colby Jones in the final seconds of the game to give Xavier the lead and win. Jones finished nine points.

Muskies Down St. John's
Xavier TEAM 99 overcame a few rough spots through the first 31 minutes(0-12 from "3"-19 turnovers) and found a way to put a way to solve hyper-aggressive St Johns at Cintas 69-61 Wednesday night. Early foul trouble limited top scorers Paul Scruggs and Zach Freemantle to 3 1st half points. St Johns pressing defense made XU's strong passing offense choppy. The Red Storm upped the tempo and killed Muskies off the dribble. X trailed 27-21 w/ 4:12 left before halftime but Travis Steele switched to soft press back to a morphing zone defense. Muskies didn't shoot the lights out but went on a 6-0 run and tied St Johns 27-27 at the half. 2nd half-STJ led 50-46 w/ 9:30 left and Steele went zone again. X embarked on a 6 minute 16-1 run-led 62-51 w/ 3:30 remaining and won it 69-61.

Three pointers failed to bail Muskies out(just 5-24 for a paltry 21%). Seton Hall won the toughness element hands down.
