The two Big East conference rivals are scheduled to lock horns in the first installment of the Big East Tournament semifinals with the tilt set to be contested at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York, NY.

The Wildcats, who had an atypical finishing run of the regular when they lost four of their last seven games, will look to reach the Big East finals for the fourth straight season but will face a Xavier side that has beaten them by 12 points when the two met last back on February 24. The Wildcats had previously toyed with the Musketeers before the setback winning the five previous tilts by 21.8 points per game easily covering the numbers in all five tilts. The Wildcats claimed the only contest in the Big East tournament against Xavier when they beat the Musketeers in the 2015 finals.
