The History of Xavier Basketball from Wikipedia.
The Xavier Musketeers men's basketball team represents Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States. The school's team currently competes in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The Musketeers are currently coached by Chris Mack, in his third season after being both an assistant coach and former player at Xavier.
Over the past 15 years, Xavier has continued to separate itself as one of the country's premier college basketball programs . Xavier made its seventh straight NCAA Tournament appearance in 2012 and its eleventh in the last 12 years.
Xavier made its 24th postseason appearance in the last 28 years, including its 20th NCAA Tournament berth during that time. XU only made the NCAA Tournament field one time (1961) before the 1982-83 season.
Xavier, with a school record 30-7 for the 2007-08 season and 27-8 for the 2008-09 season, has recorded five straight 20-win seasons and 13 in the last 14 years. XU has won 25 games or more each of the last four years.
Xavier has won four Atlantic 10 Tournament Championships in its first 15 seasons in the A-10 (1998, 2002, 2004 and 2006). Xavier has won or shared 15 regular season conference championships over the last 28 years(eight A-10 and seven MCC), while winning 10 conference tournament championships (four A-10 and six MCC).
Xavier is one of only two non-BCS schools to be listed among the top-20 most valuable college basketball programs in the US.
The first Xavier Basketball game on record was February 20, 1920 at the Fenwick Club in Cincinnati, OH. Coached by Joe Meyer, the Musketeers compiled a 94-52 record during Meyer's 13 year run as head coach from 1920 to 1933. The Musketeer's success continued under second head coach Clem Crowe. During Crowe's 10 years as Xavier head coach, Xavier compiled a record of 96-78. Crowe's 96 wins as a head coach rank fourth all-time among Xavier head coaches.
Following the 1942-43 season, play was suspended for the following two seasons because of World War 2. In 1945 the program resumed under the leadership of head coach Ed Burns. In his one season as head coach, Burns compiled a record of 3-16.
In 1946, Burns was replaced by Lew Hirt. Under Hirt, he Musketeers first post season appearance was in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) during the 1948 NAIA National Basketball Tournament, the national tournament for small colleges. Xavier finished in 4th place, losing to Hamline University in the national third-place game, 58–59. 1948 was the only year Xavier appeared in the NAIA Tournament.
In 1951, Hirt was replaced as head coach by Ned Wulk. Wulk guided the Musketeers to National Invitational Tournament appearances in 1956 and 1957. The 1956 appearance marked Xavier's first NIT win, an 84–80 victory over Saint Louis University.
After a loss to Bradley in the 1957 NIT, Hirt was replaced as head coach by Jim McCafferty. McCafferty led the Musketeers back to a third straight NIT.
Xavier Basketball is located in the state of Ohio.
