Cincinnati won’t be the only city hot with Crosstown Shootout fever on Wednesday, Dec. 13. From New York City to Los Angeles and from Detroit to Tampa, Xavier and University of Cincinnati fans and alumni are gathering to watch one of the biggest men’s basketball rivalries in the country. Tip off is at 7:00 p.m. at UC’s Fifth Third Bank Arena.

Cheers will be heard from coast-to-coast as Musketeer and Bearcat alumni and fans attend joint game-watching parties in nearly 40 cities nationwide including Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit, Tampa and St. Louis. This is the sixth time alumni associations from both universities have sponsored the Shootout get-togethers.

To get ready for the big game, Xavier's national alumni association and UC's alumni association are packing party boxes filled with Xavier and UC items and sending them to the game-watching parties.
