Xavier 63 Evansville 60
*Big comeback by Muskies, after sleepwaking thru 1st half.
*Down 13 with about 12-minutes remaining, they outscored EU 28-12 rest way.
*XU scored season low 25 in first half/cranked up pressure and tempo and scored 38 in 2nd half.
*D forced 17 TO with 12 steals.
*Justin Martin big down stretch, blocks, steals, rebounds.
*Matt Stainbrook D-D, 10 points, 15 boards....3 assists.
*Semaj Christon (19 points) has to get to the rim more than any guard in the country. He needs a gear between all or nothing, but he gets to the line: 15 FT last night, 17 Ft Saturday (25 of 33). He entered game with 39 more FTs than any other Muskie and 31% of team FTs.
*Myles Davis is a stop and pop momentum changer with his 3pt shot (46%).....3 more last night.
*Evansville's DJ Balentine held to 15 and he worked for them. Came in 4th NCAA at 24.9 pts.
*XU outrebounded again, still turns ball over and has trouble getting back in transition.
*UC really has to take a look at the in-game/halftime stuff XU does. The halftime magic show by Quick Change drew a standing ovation. Former Musketeer Brad Redford filled-in for in-game host Lindsay Patterson and was excellent. XU has a sponsored game/contest just about every timeout.
*The XU student section chanted, "We want Cincy, we want Cincy," after the game.
*Hazard pay for XU PA guy: Evansville had Rokas Cesnulevisius and Egidijus Mockevicius.
Defense comes to rescue for Xavier
Kevin Goheen, Fox Sports Ohio
In the mind of Evansville coach Marty Simmons, they perfectly reflect their head coach Chris Mack.
“He was a hell of a player. He could do it all,” said Simmons, who was a senior at Evansville when Mack was being recruited there out of Cincinnati’s St. Xavier High School. “He could pass it, shoot it, tough and that’s how they play. I think his team plays with his mentality. They’re a tough team to play against.”

On this date:
Sunday afternoon, December 10, 1989
1989 NFL Week 14
Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) versus Seattle Seahawks (5-8)
From Steven Sharp:
The Bengals entered the game as 10.0-point favorites at home, but the visiting Seattle Seahawks had other plans, winning 24-17, on a snowy day in Cincinnati. During a drive, several fans began throwing snowballs toward Seahawks players prior to a play to be run near their goal line. Bengals head coach Sam Wyche ran across the field to Tom Kinder (the Bengals on-field public-address announcer) and used his microphone to admonish those fans by telling fans to point out anyone doing this so that the offenders could be expelled from the stadium. While Wyche's comments excited the fans in attendance, it wasn't enough to inspire his team to victory. The Seahawks scored a tie-breaking touchdown with 3:51 left in the fourth quarter, and the ensuing Bengals drive was stopped on fourth down, as the Seahawks won 24-17.
One week earlier, the Bengals went on the road and defeated the Cleveland Browns, 21-0. Perhaps the Dawg Pound at Cleveland Stadium was still on Sam Wyche's mind that afternoon. Cincinnati Bengals public address announcer Tom Kinder was one of the few public address announcers in the NFL (perhaps the only one) who worked from the sideline rather than from the pressbox. Tom Kinder passed away in April 2005, after serving as the Bengals P.A. announcer for the franchise's first 37 seasons.
