Cincinnati vs Xavier Basketball 2021 Preview

Xavier is coming off a dominant 96-50 win over Ball State on December 8. Forward Zach Freemantle led all scorers with 24 points, and guards Nate Johnson and Colby Jones added 14 points apiece in the win.

The Musketeers out-rebounded Ball State 51-26, and Xavier dished out 21 assists while holding the Cardinals to just seven all game. Now, they’ll welcome a tough Bearcats squad in one of the most anticipated rivalry games of the year.

“We have a ton of depth and we keep on telling all of our guys, listen, we all have to sacrifice in order to win,” said Xavier coach Travis Steele. “It’s part of it. We got a chance to be a really good team as long as we keep everybody on the boat and everybody moving forward.”

“I tell our guys all the time when you get up at 6 a.m. in the summer, these are the moments you live for, it’s the best rivalry in all of college basketball,” Steele added. “Some of our guys have never experienced it … the environment is going to be absolutely electric at 8:30 on Saturday night. It’s a player’s game. It’s all about toughness … that’s what wins this game.”

Cincinnati is fresh from a 73-58 win over Bryant on December 5. The Bearcats had four players score in double figures, with guard David DeJulius leading all scorers with 16 points. Forward Viktor Lakhin added a double-double, netting 13 points while hauling in 11 rebounds. Cincinnati pulled ahead in the second half, but it shot just 16-27 at the free-throw line, and it’ll have to clean that up against a team like Xavier.

“I’ll never sit here and say, ‘It’s just another game,’” Cincinnati head coach Wes Miller said about the Crosstown Shootout on Wednesday. “Every game is important to us, but these games have a little something extra to them. I think that’s really fun as a competitor, that’s the kind of stuff you live for.”

“(Xavier is) a real gifted group,” Miller added. “There’s a really good chance they’re one of the top 10 to 15 teams in college basketball at the end of the year, and they’ll have a real opportunity to make a run in the NCAA Tournament. We know that they’re a great opponent. Doesn’t mean we like them a whole lot over here, but I have a lot of respect for how good of a team they are.”

The Bearcats lead the all-time series, 51-37, but Xavier has won two in a row.
