Asked Sean Miller about Souley Boum and Adam Kunkel’s disagreement during Friday’s win. “That situation is very easily explained. Two players that saw their career, college career, coming to an end. It’s a bad feeling.” 👇🏻.
Jack Nunge had 23 points, Colby Jones finished with 22 and Souley Boum and Adam Kunkel each added 16 as Xavier took the comeback win, 89-84, over DePaul in the BIG EAST Quarterfinals! Presented by @TriHealth.
All. Of. The. Drama. Adam Kunkel with the greatest bounce pass ever there, threading the needle to a cutting Colby Jones on the baseline. BLOCKED. But then Kennesaw State fouled on the second try. Xavier makes 1 of 2 FT. Kennesaw State ball, down one, to go ....
I hope the marquette kid that told me “adam kunkel is horrible” is having an AWFUL day.
Adam Kunkel misses his first 3 attempt but Jerome Hunter draws a third foul on Blake Hinson battling for the Oreb.
#LetsGoX advances to Kansas City with a 84-73 win over PITT Nunge 18 Kunkel 15 Jones 10, 13 boards, 7 assists Hunter 14 Boum 14, 5 assists Claude 11 See you next week in Kansas City #Xavier, personally my 3rd time in 14 months 😂🤪 and their first Sweet 16 since 2017.
Hunter, Jones, Claude, Kunkel, and Boum on the floor after Nunge gets stuck with his fifth. X up 13 with 3 to play..
It has been an Adam Kunkel masterclass today 🎯 #MarchMadness.

Adam Kunkel communicating to #Xavier. Telling #Xavier to pick up on screens, no down hill drives, and that they have 2 time outs left. @WCPO.
Ian Eagle today had the weirdest Xavier call I’ve ever heard: “Kunkel sets up the dunkel” What other Xavier rhymes could we have had thru the years? “Frease sets up the threes” is all I got so far.
Xavier players Adam Kunkel and Souley Boum had to be separated during win over Kennesaw State..
From reading the lips of Adam Kunkel, it seemed like he was telling Souley Boum to stay in front of his man. That may be just the jolt Xavier needs to finish this out on the defensive end..
Also, shout out to that Kunkel three pointer. I feel like that is being overlooked as a huge play down the stretch..
Xavier narrowly escapes the first round. The Musketeers beat Kennesaw State 72-67 after being down 13 about halfway through the second half. Jerome Hunter finished with 24 for Xavier, while Adam Kunkel hit a timely 3 late in the game..
Xavier players Kunkel and Boum fighting each other during a timeout lol.
I’ve seen more of Adam Kunkel’s tongue today than I ever thought possible @AKunK05 there are children watching this game!! My god!! (But also can we only give him the ball the rest of the game plz 🥵).
@Patrick_Kunkel Was für ein Zufall. Kilkenny steht bei mir heute auch auf dem Programm. Slainté..
Pretty sure @BracketNky and I called this Kunkel performance on Spaces last Sunday night.
Imagine training your whole life. Those countless hours putting up shots in the gym. All the practices, travel tournaments, junior high and high school games. All of it just so your playing career ends as a man named Kunkel who looks like this lights you up on national television.
Of course I chose Souley Boum in my player pool and not this white dude named Kunkel 🤬🤬 #MarchMadness.
BOUM needs to give kunkel the mf ball. It’s not his day, but he can’t share the selfish.
@SjBoeroSports Yeah can you imagine if this years team would’ve had Kunkel as a senior + Will Richard to go along with Sheppard. Hopefully Tyson and Gillespie will stay they’ll be the next special players..
Really would’ve liked to see Belmont this year if Kunkel, Richard, and Wood hung around. MVC and Drake were tough, but they would’ve been capable of a sweet sixteen..
Nunge with 18 points, Hunter with 14, Kunkel with 15, Colby Jones with 10-14-7 everybody was Cooking today.
Next up for No. 3 seed Xavier, whose roster includes Kunkel, ex-UHA star KyKy Tandy & ex-Walton-Verona standout Dieonte Miles, will be a round of 16 meeting with No. 2 seed Texas.
@KyleTucker_ATH Sorry but making shots for Xavier vs making shots under the spotlight at Kentucky are two VERY different things. Good for Kunkel though..
Sick to my stomach because I’ll have to keep hearing about guys named “Nunge” and “Kunkel.” Just disgusting names to have. #MarchMadness.
Nunge block helps Xavier avoid upset against Kennesaw State in NCAA Tournament opener: #LetsGoX @XavierMBB #MarchMadness.
That’s an LOL post… bball karma’s a biiitch, and Kunkel and X will have their coming….
