Gameday Central | Tiger Basketball vs. Collegiate
Saint Xavier Tigers (1-0) vs. Collegiate Titans (1-0)
Thursday, December 1st
Saint Xavier High School
The Tiger Basketball team will face Collegiate in the home opener for the 2016-2017 season. Besides it being the first home game of the season, Collegiate also poses as the Tiger’s first district game of the season. It still seems a long way away, but this game will have postseason implications.
In the Tiger’s last game, they defeated the Central Yellowjackets by a score of 65-54. In his first start of his varsity career, senior Tyler Barnes posted a double-double, scoring 10 points and grabbing a whopping 16 rebounds. To round it out, he added 5 assists as well. Look for another similar effort tonight.
The Titans will be led by former St.X Tiger and recent University of Alabama – Huntsville commit Ryan McDaniel. The lanky 6’9″ forward is versatile enough to play inside, but can be dangerous from outside the arc.
