CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Xavier University released the  2017-2018 men’s basketball non-conference schedule on Tuesday.

One of the most anticipated match ups is against the University of Cincinnati in the Skyline Chili Crosstown Shootout on December 2. The Musketeers have won three of the last four shootouts against UC and seven of the last nine.

Baylor will travel to the Cintas Center on November 28 to play the Musketeers. BU was a No. 3 seed in the 2017 tournament, but fell to South Carolina in the Sweet Sixteen. The last time XU faced Baylor, the Bears claimed a 76-61 victory; snapping Xavier’s 21 consecutive non-conference game winning streak.

Other highlights of the Musketeers schedule includes a road trip to Wisconsin to face the Badgers on their home court November 16.
