Now I’m waiting to see what we get in the Observer for our “Toronto Tour”… <_<

XU won it first game in the Bahamas, 96-88, against the Coca-Cola Explorers. [Keep in mind that the Muskateers are without suspended guard Dedrick Finn, as well as touted freshmen Churchill Odia and Boubacar Coly. The latter two stayed in Cincy due to visa concerns.]

Like the Niners in Toronto, XU had a little trouble with its 2nd game in The Bahamas. Looks like the name Justin Doellman (So., 6-9 F) is one us Niner fans will need to remember.

XU sophomore Justin Doellman sounds like he might be the Muskateers’ version of Jobey Thomas, albeit 5 inches taller. They even averaged almost the same as freshman – Thomas 7.6 and Doellman 7.3.

Looking forward to the Charlotte-Xavier matchups in the A-10.
