UC announces basketball schedule

Crosstown Shootout tips off at 4 p.m.

        The Crosstown Shootout between Cincinnati and Xavier is scheduled for a 4 p.m. tipoff Dec. 7 at Shoemaker Center. UC announced its complete schedule Monday.

        Last season, the Bearcats played their two biggest regular-season games at home when they beat Marquette (63-62) and Memphis (80-75, OT) to win the Conference USA title. UC will play on the road at those same two schools in the final eight days of the 2002-03 regular season.

        The Bearcats play March 1 at Memphis, the C-USA National Division favorite, and March 8 at Marquette, which will likely be picked by some preseason publications to win the American Division.

        UC will not play South Florida, Southern Mississippi or Houston in the regular season.
