UC won last season’s meeting, 60-45. The event will be recognized Wednesday evening as the Sports Event of the Year by the Cincinnati Sports Professionals Network.

Renamed and repurposed to show its benefit for all of Cincinnati, the 2012 contest capped off a series of events with both universities. In October, a collaborative team of students from each school participated in the Bridges Walk for a Just Community, an annual 5K event celebrating the rich ethnic and cultural heritage of the Cincinnati region. That was followed in November by a tour of the Freedom Center for members of the men’s and women’s basketball teams from both universities. There also was a UC-XU Day at the Freedom Center for students, staff and alumni of both schools that included displays about community engagement, service and collaboration at each school.
