CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Xavier University announced a pair of non-conference home games for the 2017-18 men’s basketball that are part of the 2017 Contintental Tire Las Vegas Invitational. In addition, XU announced a change in one previously scheduled non-conference road game.

Xavier will host Rider on Monday, Nov. 13 and Hampton on Monday, Nov. 20, in home contests that are non-bracketed games in the Las Vegas Invitational. XU plays two games at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Nov. 23-24 against George Washington, Kansas State or Arizona State. The matchups for those games will be announced later this summer.

As previously announced, Xavier travels to Wisconsin on Thursday, Nov. 16 as part of the Gavitt Games series that matches up teams from the BIG EAST and Big Ten conferences. That game forced XU to cancel its Nov. 16 trip to Utah, which was the return game for last year’s matchup at Cintas Center.
