The Liacouras Center was not kind to the Xavier Musketeers this past Saturday, nor has it been for the past seven years.

Things have gone in two drastically different directions for the UC and XU men’s basketball programs after the embarrassment that was the "Crosstown Brawl."

Both teams had key players suspended and UC found motivation in the fallout while Xavier has struggled to find the identity that had them as a preseason top 15.
