Xavier schedule news: 2016 Puerto Rico Tip-Off moved to Orlando

The Musketeers won the AdvoCare Invitational in Orlando last season

NCAA Basketball: Xavier at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

For the second straight year, the Xavier Musketeers will be headed to Orlando, Florida in November.

This is obviously a super precautionary move, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Additionally, the Musketeers probably don’t mind that much. It’s a shorter flight, plus they won the 2015 AdvoCare Invitational in Orlando. Of course, Xavier likely could have been included in the Gavitt Games this year, now, since they were excluded due to travel. So it goes.

The 2016 Puerto Rico Tip-Off will be played from November 17-20. For more information about the field, visit Blogging the Bracket.
