Xavier guard Mark Lyons will not return to Xavier, according to a report.

It had been rumored for quite some time that Mark Lyons was having some rifts inside the Xavier squad.

On Sunday,'s Jeff Goodman reported that Lyons would not return to the Musketeers in 2012-13.

Lyons was an integral part of a Sweet 16 run this season but had several issues during the year which led to him being left out of the starting lineup.

Rick Broering of on the network reported yesterday that another flare-up took place this week.

The Muskies will lean heavily on Dee Davis, Dez Wells, and incoming freshman Semaj Christon for solid guard play next season with the loss of All-American Tu Holloway and now Lyons.
