GAME NOTES

On Tuesday night, Tiger Basketball increased its current win streak to seven games with a victory in the 26th district tournament semifinals. The Tigers bested the Brown Bears 92-47 behind a prolific offensive performance and a strong defense.

St. X now looks to defeat Male in the district final for the third consecutive year. The Tigers have not won the district title three years in a row since 1969. Male will look to ride the momentum from their 63-52 victory over Collegiate on Tuesday night.

The Tigers and Bulldogs met on February 3rd at St. Xavier. Coach Klein’s squad built an impressive 38-8 lead a few minutes into the 2nd quarter and never looked back, winning the game 78-54.

The win over Male earlier this month started the Tigers’ current win streak, and they will look to increase the streak to eight games with another victory over the Bulldogs Thursday night as they move toward next week’s 7th Region Tournament.

Make the trip to Male tonight and cheer on your Tiger Basketball team!
