This year’s edition of the Crosstown Shootout is going to be epic because the hype going into the season of both the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Xavier Musketeers Men’s Basketball it’s making for one of the most anticipated game in the rivalry in a while.
UC and Xavier will be ranked to start off the season. On paper, the Bearcats are the better team because they only lost Troy Caupain, Kevin Johnson and Zack Tobler and gained Cane Broome and incoming impactful Freshman and a couple of transfers. Xavier returns JP Macura and Trevon Bluiett. And they have highly impactful Freshman coming in as well.
When these teams meet up on December 2nd, its likely it will be a potential top 15 matchup.
Now, this game is a noon game on FS1 on the 2nd of December from the Cintas Center. Why? That’s just stupid time schedule by Xavier because they are the worst. What if UC football plays in the American Athletic Conference Championship game on that day and if it happens, host it? It’ll be a noon kickoff. Ugh. Just saying, it can happen.
Either way, noon tip-off on FS1? Could at least put it on FOX national? A rivalry of this magnitude. Pathetic.
