Tickets will be available to the public for the newly-named "Crosstown Classic," beginning Wednesday.
For the 80th year, the Xavier University and University of Cincinnati men's basketball teams will hit the court on December 19 at 7:00 p.m.. The schools decided to change the name and location of the game following a 2011 fight on the basketball court.
The game will be at the U.S. Bank Arena for the first time in more than 25 years.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
Tickets will be available starting at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday.
You can purchase tickets at the U.S. Bank Arena box office and all Ticketmaster outlets. You can also call (800) 745-3000 or purchase tickets online at http://www.Ticketmaster.com.
