Saint Xavier Tigers (18-10) vs. Brown Bears (6-20)
Tuesday, February 21st
Varsity Game — 6:00 PM
Male High School
St. X rides a six game winning streak into this week’s 26th district tournament. The Tigers will face the Brown Bears in the first round of the tournament Tuesday night. They will look to build upon a strong finish to the regular season.
The Tigers have established a strong defensive identity down the stretch this season.
In their last six games, they have held opponents to 56 points or less, including a 74-36 victory over Brown on February 9th.
Junior center Pierce Kiesler says his team can emerge victorious if they “come mentally prepared and do not play down to the level of competition.”
Tiger Basketball is seeking its third consecutive district title, something it has not done since 1969. A district tournament win would also increase the team’s momentum as they move further into the postseason.
