The nineteenth-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats will attempt to continue their winning form as they prepare to meet the twenty-fourth-ranked Xavier Musketeers in an inter-conference showdown set to be staged on Thursday at the Fifth Third Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Xavier has won three straight against the Bearcats but the two schools haven’t met since December 2015. The Musketeers, who are fifth in the Big East two games behind Villanova, snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Georgetown Hoyas 86-75 back on Sunday. Their three-game skid came at the hands of three ranked teams.

The Musketeers used a second-half upwelling by going on a 14-3 run in the half thus ending their longest losing streak in three years. Trevon Bluiett led Xavier with 14 points, 5 rebounds and an assists. Cincinnati, who is first in the American Conference half a game ahead of SMU, has a perfect 7-0 record in the division.

The Bearcats are riding on a ten-game winning streak and Xavier is the last ranked team that they will face before season’s end. Cincinnati defeated Tulane 78-61 for their seventeenth win of the season. It was the Bearcats’ 13th win in fourteen contests against the Green Wave.

BetOnline has the Cincinnati listed as 5½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 136½.
