Saturday is Cincinnati's annual basketball holiday.
It's the 87th edition of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Shootout. This year the University of Cincinnati will make the 2.6-mile journey from Clifton Avenue to Victory Parkway.
This will be the 10th time the Bearcats and Musketeers have played in Cintas Center, which happens to be celebrating its 20th anniversary this season.
Xavier's been solid protecting its home floor with eight straight wins against UC at home.
UC's last road win in the Shootout came in the 2001-02 season, which was the first time the two rivals tangled in Cintas.
