RTC Live: Cincinnati @ XavierPosted by rtmsf on December 13th, 2009
For just about any college basketball fan, It’s one of those games that you find on the schedule and immediately circle. If you’re from the Cincinnati area and you’ve got a dog in this fight, then it’s even more important. Since the 1927-28 season, these two teams have come together every year in a tradition known as — say it with me — the Crosstown Shootout. Cincinnati owns a 47-29 lead but Xavier has won seven of the last ten. Jordan Crawford and Jason Love battle in the hopes of getting Xavier into the Top 25 and increase their role on the national stage, while Lance Stephenson, Yancy Gates, and Cashmere Wright try to move the Bearcats up the polls now that they’re back on the scene. There’s no love lost between these two programs and this is certainly a game both of these teams would love to have on the tournament resume. We’ll be there starting at 6:45 pm ET, so tune in the game and join us as well!
