Xavier guard could miss 49ers game

Freshman guard Mark Lyons missed Xavier’s first two Atlantic 10 games with a severe bone bruise and Musketeers coach Chris Mack said Monday he doesn't think Lyons will return for Wednesday's home game with the Charlotte 49ers.

"Mark still has to visit the doctors again but my it's my guess we won't have him for Charlotte," Mack said during Monday's A-10 coaches teleconference.

Lyons, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound guard, started the five games prior to his injury and averaged 9.4 points and 2.6 assists. He has scored in double figures in seven games.
