The Tigers begin the 2014-2015 season on the road against a familiar opponent.  St. X has faced Central numerous times in both the regular season and the postseason.  After two lackluster performances in scrimmages against Oldham County and Bowling Green, the Tigers will be hungry to prove they are not a team to be taken for granted.

It will be a special night for senior C.J. Shanklin, as he will start his first regular season game since tearing his left ACL in the summer of 2013.  Fellow senior Ashanti Burgess will look to have a breakout season with long-time lead guard Robert Shaw now graduated.  Burgess struggled with ball security in the two scrimmages, finishing with more than 7 turnovers in both scrimmages.  Keeping turnovers at a minimum will be huge for St. X all season, but especially tonight when they take on the very underrated Yellow Jackets at their house.  Central is always well-coached, and it is known for applying heavy pressure defense.

It will be interesting to see how St. X handles the pressure, as it struggled mightily in the first two scrimmages with handling a full-court press.  All in all, this should be a great contest.
