Rhode Island’s Xavier Munford Sizzles In GLeague

Former University of Rhode Island star Xavier Munford has been named the NBA G League’s Performer of the Week.

 

The 6-3 point guard averaged 25 points on a whopping 71 percent shooting from three last week, along with 5.5 assists and 1.8 steals, while leading the Wisconsin Herd to a 3-1 record.

 

Munford had 25 points and 10 assists, including the game-winning buzzer-beater, in the team’s 115-113 win over the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Nov. 6.

 

He also poured in 31 points in the Herd’s 106-102 victory against the Reno Bighorns on Nov. 11.

 

Munford was a member of the gold-medal winning 2017 USA AmeriCup Team this summer, averaging 10.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3 assists.

 

He averaged 18.5 points and 5.3 assists for the G League’s Swarm last season.

 

A college star at Rhode Island, Munford led the team in scoring as a senior, averaging 16.9 points, 4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists.

 

He scored over 1,000 points for the Rams in only two seasons.

 

Before transferring to Rhode Island, Munford played at JUCO Iowa Western College, averaging an ICCAC conference high 16.6 points a game on 37 percent shooting from three, and leading the school to a 24-9 record.

 

Undrafted, Munford played with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2015-16, averaging 5.7 points and 2.2 rebounds in 14 games.

 

In the process he became the first Rhode Island player to debut in an NBA game since Lamar Odom back in 1999 (according to the Providence Journal).
