GREENSBORO, N.C. -The Xavier Musketeers took to the floor in the final practice at Greensboro Coliseum on Thursday night, but they were excited that the match-up with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish was soon on the horizon.

The day prior to games is full of open practices and press conferences for coaches and student-athletes and the Musketeers were no exception. XU's five probable starters Dezmine Wells, Mark Lyons, Kenny Frease, Tu Holloway and Andre Walker took to the podium in front of national press as well as familiar faces from Cincinnati. Head coach Chris Mack followed after and then took his squad out to the court to practice.

Xavier will have to wait until Friday evening to finally take to the floor. Be sure to stay tuned go CBS to watch the telecast and keep up to date with the Musketeers using social media. Live in-game tweets can be found on @XavierGameDay.
