Separated by slightly more than 100 miles, Ohio State and Cincinnati might be geographic acquaintances, but they’ve never been mistaken for friendly neighbors, at least when it comes to their basketball programs.
There’s a history between the two, going back to two games played half a century ago. Sweet or bitter, depending on which side you pull for. And because of what happened way back when - plus a few other reasons - there haven’t been many basketball games since then pitting the Bearcats against the Buckeyes. Just one, to be precise.
