Riding a 41-game non-conference home win streak, the Xavier Musketeers (2-0) welcome one of their toughest tests to the Cintas Center Tuesday night – the Wisconsin Badgers (1-0). 

The meeting is part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games and this is Xavier’s first time hosting in the annual Big Ten-Big East showdown. 

The Musketeers went on the road last season to the Kohl Center in Madison and escaped with an 80-70 win. 

Before tipoff at 6:30 p.m., check out the scouting report and follow along right here during the game.
