CHICAGO – With just hours until the No. 24 ranked Saint Xavier University men's basketball team opens its 2011-12 campaign with an exhibition against NCAA Division I power University of Notre Dame (Ind.), SXU head coach Tom O'Malley is thrilled to finally take a break from practice and give his team the chance to play on a big stage.  The exhibition is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. (eastern) tip-off Tuesday night at Purcell Pavilion in Notre Dame, Ind.      

"This is not only a great opportunity for our players, but also our program and University," said O'Malley.  "To play a team with the level of talent and distinguished tradition that University of Notre Dame possesses is a unique privilege.  I know our guys are extremely excited for the game and this will be a moment they will remember for the rest of their lives."

For any SXU fans unable to make it to Tuesday's exhibition, the University of Notre Dame has a host of features to follow the action online.  The following link provides access to these features, including a free web broadcast, live blog and live stats.
