CINCINNATI - Tickets remain available for Saturday, Nov. 27's University of Cincinnati men's basketball game vs. the University of Dayton at U.S. Bank Arena. The game will tip-off at 7 p.m. The game is the finale of the Global Sports Main Event, an NCAA exempted tournament.

The cost of parking at the Central Parking Garages is $15 per vehicle for the event.

As a reminder to 2010-11 UC Men's Basketball season ticket holders, the Dayton game is not included in the season ticket package since this is an exempted tournament which is organized and run outside the University.

Last year, after a four-year hiatus, the University of Cincinnati met Dayton in the second round of the NIT marking the 90th time the two schools met. The I-75 rivalry is UC's second-oldest and third-longest rivalry in program history. The Bearcats own a 59-31 advantage in the series and have won 14 of the last 17 meetings dating back to the 1989-90 season -- UC's first in Fifth Third Arena.
