Thomas More to Face Xavier in Men's Basketball
Thomas More College continues to punch above its weight class, announcing Tuesday that the Saints will face off against Xavier in men's basketball.
The announcement follows the news from earlier this month that Thomas More would travel to Lexington to face the Kentucky Wildcats.
Both games will be pre-season exhibitions.
The Saints will face the Xavier Musketeers at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati as part of XU's only public exhibition game on its home floor. The game is set for November 4. Game time will be announced later.
Thomas More travels to Lexington to face UK on October 27.
Adding two Division I national powers to its pre-reason games should help the Saints continue its momentum from last season which saw Thomas More win the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament championship before falling in the first round of the NCAA Division III national tournament. The team finished 22-7, the first time in program history that the Saints have won more than 20 games and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in the same season.
The Saints return 18 players from last season's team, including all five starters.
