CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team has advanced the NCAA East Regional Semifinal on the strength of its 62-56 win over Florida State Sunday, and will face Ohio State on Thursday March 22 at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass.
UC will play the second game of the evening around 9:45 p.m. ET in Boston. The Bearcats follow the Wisconsin-Syracuse game which is scheduled for a 7:15 p.m. tip off. The game will be televised on CBS with Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery and Lesley Visser on the call.
