Xavier set for opening night on Tuesday vs. IUPUI
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Xavier Musketeers celebrate opening night for the 2018-19 season on Tuesday night at Cintas Center vs. IUPUI. Tip-off is set for 8:30 p.m. Xavier opens the season under new leadership with first-year head coach Travis Steele, who spent the past 10 years on the Xavier staff.
Tuesday’s game opens a three-game homestand for the Musketeers. XU welcomes Evansville on Nov. 10 and Wisconsin on Nov. 13. The Evansville game has been designated as Xavier's Maui Jim Maui Invitational Opening Game, a non-bracketed part of the tournament that sends XU to Maui later this month. The Wisconsin game is part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games, the annual challenge between the BIG EAST Conference and the Big Ten Conference.
