By JOE KAYCINCINNATI (AP) — Senior guard Myles Davis has been reinstated, bringing 16th-ranked Xavier back to full strength for the first time this season.
The Plainfield, N.J., native was a leader on the Xavier team that was ranked as high as No. 5 last season, averaging 10.8 points per game.
He was suspended before the start of this season while facing misdemeanor charges in court for damaging his former girlfriend’s property.
The Musketeers are in first place alone atop the Big East following their 97-82 win over St. John’s on Saturday. Xavier (13-2, 3-0) is the last team unbeaten in league play.
Xavier opened the season without Davis and forward Kaiser Gates, who had surgery to repair torn knee cartilage. Gates is finally back in form, scoring a career-high 17 points on Saturday.
