If his voice goes out, John Brannen joked he might use the giant play cards seen on college football sidelines this Saturday at Xavier.

Other than that, the Cincinnati basketball coach maintained his team's approach for the Crosstown Shootout rivalry at Cintas Center will be business as usual.

"You don't simulate it," Brannen said. "You rely on your habits, you rely on your system. Hopefully my voice will come back so they can hear our calls."
