Northern Arizona vs. Xavier: Halftime Notes

It's all Xavier at the end of the first 20 minutes.

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Well, that escalated quickly.

~ Matt Stainbrook has been absolutely terrific through the opening frame. He missed just one of his seven field goal attempts, totaling up 13 points on the evening. That includes a 3-pointer -- yes, you read that correctly. He also has six rebounds and three blocks.

~ Jalen Reynolds has been showing off his hops early and often, including this terrific alley oop slam jam off the dish from the highly touted Remy Abell. Reynolds has 10 points off the bench so far and, much like Stainbrook, has yet to miss a field goal attempt.

~ Freshman Trevon Blueitt has been outstanding thus far, scoring eight points, displaying relatively no fear shooting the basketball, and has two rebounds, a steal and an assist as well.

~ The Musketeers as a whole are shooting 66.7 percent at the half on 27 attempts, and have stifled the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks to a FG percentage of just 25.0 percent (7-28 FG). Both teams have been somewhat sloppy thus far, as they each have seven turnovers.

~ Leading the way thus far through a dismal first half for the Lumberjacks is forward Ako Kaluna, who has five points, including a 3-pointer.

Enjoy the 2nd half!
