KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Souley Boum never played on a losing team at his previous two schools. He also never played in an NCAA Tournament.
So Boum is savoring every moment of his one and only season at Xavier, the school he chose because he felt it gave him his best opportunity to play in March Madness. The joy on his face was obvious as he sat down with teammates to meet the media Thursday to discuss the Musketeers' Midwest Region semifinal matchup against Texas on Friday night.
“I still can’t believe that I’m up here today with these guys," Boum said. “It’s just been a dream come true, and I’m happy that I’m here. This is what I came here for.”
