From the Huggins handshake-less finish to a cowbell from the stands, I don’t think that’s what SNL Skit meant when they were asking for more cowbell. There is nothing quite like the rivalry between the two schools separated by a mere 2.7 miles.
It is my favorite rivalry in college basketball (sorry, UNC-Duke) and it returns on December 10th when the Cincinnati Bearcats battle the Xavier Musketeers in the 90th edition of the Crosstown Shootout. And while Cincinnati holds the 51-38 series lead. Xavier has won 11 of the past 15 contests.
