Xavier Hosts Cincinnati In Off-Campus Game At U.S. Bank Arena
About 10,000 tickets "out of a possible 16,000 have been sold" for Saturday's Cincinnati-Xavier men's basketball game at U.S. Bank Arena. The event, dubbed the Skyline Chili Crosstown Classic, heads off-campus this year, a move "precipitated by the teams' 2011 brawl at Cintas Center." As the official home team Xavier is "responsible for the referees and the game-day staff members." Ticket revenues and other expenses "will be shared equally between the schools." Advertising around the event will be "largely neutral" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 12/13).
