After a week of rest and preparation, Head Coach Kevin Klein are ready to take over duties on Friday nights from Will Wolford and Tiger Football. St. X’s first Friday game of the season comes at home against the Bombers of Cincinnati Saint Xavier.
After a fantastic season opener on the road against Central and a home blowout of the Collegiate Titans, Tiger Nation will now get to see how good this year’s squad really is in a game that is sure to go down to the wire. Last season, Cincy St. X led throughout the game, but Tiger point guard Robert Shaw led a comeback effort in the fourth and ultimately was the driving force that allowed St. X to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
The Tigers were able to leave Cincinnati with a win, and there is no doubt that they want to send the Bombers home with another loss. Cincy St. X had elite size last season, but does not return much of last year’s production. We will have to see whether junior Tiger point guard Connor McKim can man the ship like Shaw did last season. He has played so well to this point, but tonight is where the rubber meets the road; McKim has to play well tonight if he wants fans to stop worrying about Shaw’s absence for St. X this year.
