CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - On Saturday at the Cintas Center, the No. 6 Xavier University men's basketball team will face off against DePaul.
The Big East match-up is slated to tip off Saturday at 2 p.m.
X's and O's aside, it's tough not to mention Pantelis Xidias in a preview for a DePaul match-up. The freshman from Michigan City, Ind. joined the program as a non-scholarship player in September and has made a bit of a name for himself from the sidelines.

Below are a few tweets that best display Xidias' antics. You can be the judge of whether this is quality hype man work:
