The 2011–12 Xavier Musketeers men's basketball team is representing Xavier University in the current 2011–12 college basketball season. This is head coach Chris Mack's third season at Xavier. The Musketeers compete in the Atlantic 10 Conference and play their home games at the Cintas Center.

Preseason[edit]

On October 13, 2011, the Musketeers were picked by other Atlantic 10 coaches to finish first in the league standings and received 18 first place votes.

Kenny Freese, along with Mark Lyons were named to the All-Conference Second Team. Justin Martin and Dezmine Wells were selected to the 2011–12 preseason Atlantic 10 Conference All-Rookie Team.

Senior Center Kenny Frease was suspended from October 14 through October 23 not fulfilling all of the responsibilities of a Xavier basketball player. Frease was reinstated on October 23.[1] Senior Tu Holloway will sit out the first game of the season because of a secondary violation of NCAA rules. Sources believe Holloway played in two summer leagues. The NCAA allows players to compete in one.[2]
