Don’t believe me? Just ask Jon Rothstein.
Xavier will host Cincinnati on December 2nd at the Cintas Center in the annual Crosstown Shootout, per a source.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) June 14, 2017
Although the Bearcats won the Crosstown Shootout this past year (shout out to Jarron Cumberland), they have not won at the Cintas Center since 2001 when they rolled to a 75-55 victory. However, the two teams did play games that needed overtime to settle during the 2005-06 and 2009-10 campaigns. During that 2001 season, the Bearcats went 31-4, won the Conference USA tournament and came four points shy in double overtime from overcoming UCLA to advance to the Sweet 16.
So get ready, folks. On Dec. 2 your heart rate will be elevated.
