    #UC basketball likely to play at #NKU next season when 5th/3rd renovated, sources say.
    US Bank Arena would be contingency plan.
    10:32 AM - 9 Feb 2017


    Mike Bohn (UC AD) said an official announcement should be out by mid next week, but all signs point to UC playing at NKU next season with a few of the bigger games possibly being played at USBA, if needed.

    Thoughts?

    Not a moment too soon. I went to 5th/3rd more than 10 years ago now and thought it was pretty awful then.

    UC could play literally in my backyard and I still wouldn't go see them...unless Louisville was coming to town to kick their rear ends!

    I agree, I thought it was a bad venue.

    How is it not owned by NKU? I understand they contract with an outside management company to run the place.

    For the UC fans, if you haven't been to BB&T Arena, I think you'll find its a great place to watch a bball game.

    Surprisingly some pretty good food for a little Tavern. You'd never guess it from the outside, but a nice craft beer selection as well.

    Well aware of all of the above. Spent many nights in there in my early 20's.

    Not sure. Traffic/Parking issues for those with night classes is a negative. Not sure if NKU benefits from the revenue generated from it. Maybe some additional exposure to those across the river? As @Walter said. good for local businesses. We shall see who beefs up their advertising.

    Do you still walk out of there and have to burn your clothes due to the grease and smoke smell? I fired the place about 5 years ago because it was so bad.
