Coaches cross paths at Crosstown Shootout VIP party (WKRC)

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - This weekend one of the most anticipated sporting events in the city, the Crosstown Shootout, takes place at Fifth Third Arena.

Xavier has been dominant in the series recently, winning five of the last seven matchups, including last year's 89-76 victory at the Cintas Center. Both UC and X graduated their top scorers and leaders, so who will step up on Saturday?

Thursday, the pre-game VIP party took place at the Skyline Chili in downtown Cincinnati. Both fanbases came together for a lighthearted night, with both coaches on the hot seat for a few minutes. It may be fun and games now, but that won't be the case come Saturday, with two completely different squads from a year ago.
