The annual highlight of the non-conference schedule, the Crosstown Shootout returns to Fifth Third Arena this season where the Bearcats look to stay perfect at home vs. Xavier under head coach Mick Cronin. Cincinnati downed the Musketeers, 67-57, behind 24 points from then freshman Deonta Vaughn in 2006-07, making Cronin the first rookie coach in the last seven at either school to win his first Shootout.

UC is off to a 5-1 start, their best under Cronin, after coming from behind to knock off UNLV, 67-65, last weekend in the final round of the Global Sports Classic in Las Vegas. Vaughn and freshman forward Yancy Gates led the new-look Bearcats with 16 points each vs. the Rebels.
