Add another element of evidence to Xavier’s improvement on the basketball floor.
The Gators recently completed a 28-7 record in summer camp play (ASU, NAU, Grand Canyon) and had a consistent output in summer leagues at Phoenix Thunderbird and Phoenix Alhambra high schools.
Xavier finished off the run with a 55-27 victory over defending Division IV state champion Phoenix Christian in the championship game of the Alhambra tourney. Xavier had reached the semifinals of the Thunderbird tourney.
“We were on fire from the 3 (-point range) and they (Phoenix Christian) never recovered,’’ said Xavier coach Stephen Moss.
