CINCINNATI -- It’s a Xavier tradition for the student section to loft handfuls of newspaper confetti into the air when a Musketeers player scores the first basket of a men’s basketball game at Cintas Center.

Most of the paper is swept away when the game ends. But in the 11 days between Xavier’s regular-season home finale and Selection Sunday this year, the student section was removed as part of a planned renovation.
Piles of vintage confetti were discovered beneath the seats.
