There are reports out of Indianapolis and on the internet that Butler University, the benchmark school of the Horizon League, has expressed interest in joining the Atlantic 10 Conference in all sports except football as a replacement for Temple University.

Butler’s football program is non-scholarship and plays in the Pioneer Football League.

The A-10 will be losing Temple as a member to the Big East in the fall of 2013.

Xavier rallies to dump Charlotte on Senior Day; gets first round bye in A-10 tourney

 

Tu Holloway

Kenny Frease

The Xavier Musketeers have not had their typical season in the A-10. Usually this time of the season, they’re dominating teams and hoisting another league regular season title.

But this year after a much-publicized fight with city arch-rival UC, the Musketeers have been beaten by teams they normally run off the court.

Saturday against the Charlotte 49ers, they could not contain center Chris Braswell who scored 28 points and had to rally late to win 72-63.

The win allows “X” to get a first-round bye in this week’s Atlantic 10 tournament.

Xavier, only 19-11, 10-6, trailed by as many as 14 points on Senior Day and then closed the game on an 18-5 run behind seniors Kenny Frease and Tu Holloway.

Frease scored 18 points with 12 rebounds and Holloway led the way with 24 points as Xavier earns the #3 seed in the A-10 tourney.

Charlotte ends the regular season at 13-16, 5-11.

Dayton uses Gruden’s pep talk to dominate arch-rival Xavier

(Dayton’s Kevin Dillard talks about win over Xavier)


Most people who follow sports do not realize that Jon Gruden, the Super Bowl-winning coach is a graduate of the University of Dayton.

Gruden, who most people say looks like the movie doll “Chuckie”, was quarterback for the Dayton Flyers football team in the 1980′s and led the team to a couple of Stagg Bowls.

He is a proud alumnus and watches the Flyers basketball team on ESPN when he can.

He was instrumental in Dayton’s 87-72 win over the Xavier Musketeers on Saturday afternoon at UD Arena.

Gruden, wearing his old Dayton football lettermen’s jacket, was asked by basketball head coach Archie Miller to talk to the players at an 8 a.m. film session and give them a pep talk. He told the players to “go out, play hard and share the ball.” The players listened and were grateful that Gruden came back to talk to the team.

Before a sellout crowd of 13, 435, the Flyers did everything Gruden told them as they blasted the Musketeers.

Junior Matt Kavanaugh scored 20 points while hauling down 9 rebounds, and junior point guard Kevin Dillard, who was selected the Blackburn/McCafferty Trophy, which goes to the game’s MVP, had 16 points and nine assists as the Dayton took control of first place in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Overall, UD is 14-5, 4-1 while Xavier falls to 13-6, 4-2. The other A-10 top teams have at least two losses.

The Flyers worked the ball around the perimeter in the half-court offense and were able to score at will from 3-point land, getting second and third chances on the offensive rebounds and just basically outhustled the more-publicized Musketeers.

Dayton built up an 18-point lead in the 2nd half, and Xavier could not get it under 11 the rest of the game.

The Flyers frustrated Xavier stars Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons all game and it showed. They missed open shots and layups and could not score at will in previous matchups. Holloway scored 21 and Lyons 20, but most of those points came after the game had long been decided. They were the only Musketeers in double figures scoring.

On the other hand, the Flyers had four players in double figures to support Kavanaugh and Dillard. Josh Parker added 16 and Paul Williams scored 13. Dayton also dominated the paint eventhough Xavier has 7-footer Kenny Frease, scoring 28 points and the bench play went to the Flyers, who are deeper, 27-16.

It was obvious that Xavier head coach Chris Mack was upset with his team’s intensity from the game’s outset. The Muskies did not come out at halftime until there was only 2:49 left on the clock.

The next matchup will come in February on the 18th at the Cintas Center where Dayton has never won and has had some nightmarish games. Maybe this might be the year to sweep Xavier.

University of Dayton senior Chris Johnson will miss Wednesday’s game at St. Bonaventure after suffering a blow to the head in Monday’s practice.  He has not been diagnosed with a concussion but is being held from the trip as a precaution.
For the season, Johnson is third on the team in scoring (10.6).  He is also first in three-pointers made (33), second in rebounding (5.5), third in assists (29) and fourth in FT% (.806, 29-36).  He turned in back-to-back double-doubles in wins over Saint Louis and Temple to start Atlantic 10 play after fellow forward Josh Benson tore his ACL and was lost for the season.

Currently tied for 28th in career scoring at Dayton with 1,239 points, Johnson had started 57 straight games for the Flyers.

Dayton is 12-4 overall in 2011-12, and tied for first one week in the A-10 season with Charlotte and La Salle with a 2-0 record.  UD’s next game after St. Bonaventure is on Saturday, Jan. 14 at home against the Explorers.

Xavier University hands down basketball suspensions

 

CINCINNATI — Xavier University Associate Vice President and Athletic Director Mike Bobinski announced today that four XU men’s basketball student-athletes will serve suspensions as a result of their parts in yesterday’s incidents at the Crosstown Shootout. Bobinski made the announcement on behalf of Xavier and the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Xavier AD Mike Bobinski

Freshman Dezmine Wells, who had a mandatory one game suspension for being ejected from the game for fighting, has been given an additional three games by Xavier and will serve a four-game suspension. Sophomore Landen Amos has also been given a four-game suspension. Junior Mark Lyons will serve a two-game suspension. Senior Tu Holloway will serve a one-game suspension.

“I have been working closely with Atlantic 10 Conference Commissioner Bernadette McGlade and the A-10 staff since yesterday afternoon,” said Bobinski. “We have all thoroughly reviewed the video evidence from a variety of sources. The Atlantic 10 fully supports our decisions on the suspensions announced today.

“We accept full responsibility for our part in the events that occurred at the end of our game yesterday. It was both embarrassing and disappointing and clearly did not reflect the standards of behavior we expect from our student-athletes. We resolve to do whatever is necessary to prevent an incident like this from occurring in the future. Additionally, we regret the poorly-chosen words our student-athletes used in the post-game press conference and have addressed the matter with them.”
