After an early game at Xavier's Cintas Center arena, the Fox Sports 1 star college hoops broadcast team of Bill Raftery and Gus Johnson will hop on a bus from Cincinnati to Indianapolis, where they are also slated to call tonight's Villanova/Butler game. Joining them at both games, and on their bus, is a member of our site, Nick C., who won the network's New Year's Eve Road Trip contest on Twitter.
It's a unique day for Johnson and Raftery, who will call two games from two different locations. The other five games on the FS1 schedule will have different crews.

Dick Stockton and Bob Wenzel will be in Washington D.C. for the Hoyas' 5:00pm tilt with DePaul. Marquette will ring in the New Year at Creighton, tipping off at 10:00pm (Eastern) in a game covered by Justin Kutcher and Donny Marshall.
