The 87th installment of the Crosstown Shootout tips off at 5 p.m. Saturday night at Xavier University's Cintas Center.
The Cincinnati Bearcats enter 6-2 overall and the Musketeers are 8-1.
Both teams are ranked outside the top 25 in the national polls, but a win Saturday could change that.
Xavier's won seven straight over UC on its home floor. The Bearcats' last win on Victory Parkway came in the 2001-02 season.
