Wildcats land Xavier transfer Mark Lyons
Former Xavier guard Mark Lyons tweeted he committed to the Wildcats Sunday.

Lyons reportedly had interest in Kentucky and Kansas, but ultimately chose to reunite with head coach Sean Miller, who recruited him to Xavier in 2008.
The 6-1, 188-pound standout is expected to be able to play immediately, since he is planning to enroll at Arizona as a graduate student. He should give the Wildcats a huge boost at the point guard position next season.
Lyons was a third team All-Atlantic-10 selection for Xavier last season and averaged 15.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.
