CINCINNATI - Xavier University has released their full 2012-13 men's college basketball schedule.

The Musketeers have a full slate of talented opponents on the schedule this year, and with no returning starters, each game will likely be a challenge.

There are 10 teams on XU's schedule that made the 2012 NCAA Tournament, and 22 teams in total that saw postseason action.

"This is a great schedule for our fans and for our team," said Xavier Athletic Director Mike Bobinski.

And fans will be able to see the game on national TV quite a bit, with eight total games on the ESPN family of networks, seven games on CBS Sports Network, and seven more than will be on CPS Sports Network Regional broadcasts. The remaining games will be broadcast on Fox Sports Ohio.

Only season tickets are currently on sale. Visit the Xavier men's basketball ticket website for more details or call the Xavier Athletic Ticket Office at 513-745-3411.
