CINCINNATI — With Xavier badly in need of a win, freshman KyKy Tandy had a career night to help the Musketeers snap a three-game losing streak.
Tandy scored a season-high 18 points, and Naji Marshall also had 18 lifting the Musketeers to a 66-57 victory over Georgetown on Wednesday night.
“KyKy played tremendous,” said Musketeers coach Travis Steele. “It brings you joy as a coach to see a young man blossom. He did some really good things, but we haven’t seen the complete KyKy Tandy yet.”
Tandy’s 18 points were the most by a Xavier freshman since Marshall scored 20 in a win over Seton Hall during the 2017-18 season.
