By: Adam Purvis ~Staff Writer~

After another run into the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament, Xavier’s men’sImage
basketball team was able to release the rest of its schedule today after the Big East released the conference schedule.

Home highlights include the Crosstown Shootout on Dec. 12 against Cincinnati, the first home conference game against Butler on Jan. 2 and a match-up on Feb. 24 against a
Villanova team that should be highly ranked. The Musketeers will start conference play with a New Year’s Eve game at Villanova.

Xavier’s schedule features three games that will be showcased nationally on Fox. Seventeen of Xavier’s other 29 games are scheduled to appear on Fox Sports 1. Following a run to the Big East title game last season, the Musketeers will return to Madison Square Garden between Mar. 9 and 12 to try to repeat last year’s success.
