Cincinnati to host NCAA 1st/2nd Round in 2022At US Bank Arena...let's hope they do some upgrades before then. Other sites include:
Don't think UC would be eligible to play there since they are the host school, but I assume X would be.Advertisement

Good news for Cats and Cards, you can pretty much pencil them into Cincy that weekend unless they fall off of the wagon between now and then.

shocked it was picked. what a dump. At 42 years old, and last major renovation 20 years ago, would it set record for oldest arena to host games?

Apr 18, 17, 06:57 PM #6Renovations have been in the works for over a year. Not sure how it's progressing but I'd assume the NCAA would've never went for the bid with the arena in its current state. They must expect to move forward and have the renovations complete in time for hosting the tourney games.

If you read the NCAA rules, no host institution can play at the host site. There might be ways around that since UC doesn't play any games there but no clue what they are.

Apr 18, 17, 10:58 PM #15I hadn't heard of the renovation plans but my guess is if they are asking for public funds, it's a long shot. Love the thought but I don't see this happening.
