St. Joseph's Recap

Xavier picked up a much needed road win 68-54. Derrick Brown led the way with 18 points and 10 rebounds. BJ Raymond added 18 and CJ Anderson chipped in 10. Terrell Holloway was 0-6 from the field but the silver lining is he had four assists with NO turnovers.

Ahmad Nivins is the A10 POY and he led the way for the Hawks with 24. He kept Love and Frease in foul trouble all night. Tasheed Carr suffered a concussion earlier in the week during practice and was held out of tonight's game. The senior guard certainly would have helped and this is the Hawks' first five game losing streak since 1999.

Also of note: Temple lost to LaSalle tonight. I think their bubble is popped after that one. I still hope they beat UD this weekend. With an 11-3 conference mark we currently hold a one game lead over Rhode Island.

The Musketeers are off for a week before taking on Dayton next Thursday night at 9 PM. The school will be on spring break so the team should have plenty of time to work on improving things. It is senior night and we owe them a return beat down.
