Xavier to Announce Schedule Today

Coach Mack tweeted today that Xavier is expected to release the schedule later on this afternoon. This is obviously exciting news for those who are planning to get to a game or two (or more) in person this year. While the non-conference opponents are not a secret - for the record, X has home games with UC, Miami (OH), Georgia, Gonzaga, Oral Roberts, Morgan St., IPFW, and Purdue and road matchups with Vandy, Memphis, and Butler, plus the Diamond Head tournament in Hawai'i - but the order and dates of those games will be interesting to see.

The A-10 schedule is still up for grabs, but early reports have Xavier going to Charlotte January 28, 2012. We know (or at least strongly suspect)Xavier will host Charlotte, Dayton, Duquesne, URI, Richmond, St Bonaventure, St. Joe's, and St. Louis and travel to Charlotte, Dayton, Fordham, GW, La Salle, Temple, St. Louis, and UMass. X will also be playing an exhibition game with Bellarmine November 5, 2011. Brad will be back later to break down the schedule once it's released.

UPDATE: The schedule is now up here, while the press release can be found here. Coach Mack gave a brief statement regarding the schedule (video here), describing it as "challenging" among other things.
