    Didn't UK and Ohio State used to play once a year?

    May be wrong,but thought they played each other once a year way back when. Have always wondered why these two never played at Bank Center in Cincinnati every year as a neutral site or Dayton's Hara Arena.

    I don't think they have in my lifetime, but not certain.

    Last game was the 96-97 season (UK won). Before that they played in Maui in 1993 (UK won). Before that was the NCAA tourney (first round, I think) & OSU won. Played a home-and-home (79-80 @ Rupp, 80-81 @ OSU).

    Yes, the Rock 'n Roll shootout. I thought that was right, but had to check my Cats Pause yearbook to verify. You evidently have a better memory than I do.

    Here's their history. You can figure out when the "scheduled" each other or played each other in the tourneys.
