The Xavier Musketeers, always a contender in the Atlantic 10 Conference, finished Friday’s game with the most points in a game since a 118-113 win over Loyola Marymount in 1989 with the 117-75 blasting of Fairleigh Dickinson.

Dee Davis had career highs with 22 points and 15 assists for “X”.

Musketeers led 68-32 at the half, the second-highest first-half scoring total in its history.

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

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.

A few weeks ago, the Xavier Musketeers got into a much-publicized fight with Cincinnati and they quickly started losing games.

But now, ‘X’ is back on the winning game, with three in a row.

The Musketeers beat the St. Bonaventure Bonnies, 77-64 in Atlantic 10 Conference action.

Mark Lyons led the way for ‘X’ with 21 points.

Xavier has a record of 12-5, 3-1 while the Bonnies drop to 9-7, 2-2.

The Bonnies shot 38.5 from the floor.
