Muskie Golf - Raising the Bar!!!
Doug Steiner is celebrating his 25th year as Xavier's golf coach in a very special way. This Saturday(April 13th) marks the Official Opening of the Francis Xavier Homan Golf Practice Facility at Maketewah Country Club on Reading Road. It's a joint venture between XU Golf and Maketewah. It's gorgeous and functional!!
Muskies Brooklyn Stay Brief!!
Xavier's profitable rewarding 18 year run in the Atlantic 10, apparently, is now over-history-done. Certainly, losing to St. Joe's in the conference tournament first round was not an ideal swan song from the Muskies' perspective. The Hawks won 58-57 in a wild finish at the new Barclay's Center. XU had mega-chances to win and advance, but late first half and late game execution issues bit the Muskies in the butt as they have all season during a rash of close losses.
Atlantic 10 Roundup (3/6-3/12) and Tournament Primer
The Atlantic 10 weekly roundup covers updates on all of the happenings within the conference, including big game results, updated standings, and more. It will run every Wednesday, covering the previous week.
It was more of the same for the Musketeers this past week, with an overtime upset of the Saint Louis Billikens, followed by an agonizing road loss to the Butler Bulldogs. Xavier hasn't strung together consecutive victories since February 9th and 13th against Duquesne and Fordham.
