Memphis, Tenn.’s basketball arena is called FedExForum. The Cincinnati Bearcats will look to live up to that name Thursday by delivering big in the first game of the American Athletic Conference (AAC) Tournament. Tickets are still available and can be purchased here.
Prior to tip-off, University of Cincinnati (UC) alumni will be treated to more first-class action free reception featuring Coach Mick Cronin and Mike Bohn, UC’s new athletic director. Alumni and fans will enjoy appetizers, drinks and a cash bar -- all from the comfort of the conveniently located Westin Hotel on Lt. George W. Lee Ave.
