This matchup was a long time in the making. In fact, the two in-state schools haven’t faced off with each other during the regular season since 1921. Why the two couldn’t get something figured out depends on who you ask, but there’s no denying the fact that the two institutions had some bad blood and could never put it aside.

But that doesn’t matter now. These are the types of games Chris Holmann wants to see, and you can bet that he was instrumental in making this home-and-home (the two play in Columbus next year) matchup a reality.

But nobody really knows what to expect from either club. The Bearcats lost three key members from last year’s team including AAC Player of the Year Gary Clark and are hoping for others to step up.

It’s a similar story at Ohio State. The Buckeyes lost Big Ten Player of the Year Keita Bates-Diop along with guards Kam Williams and Andrew Dakich, and heart and soul leader Jae’Sean Tate.

This game will be a measuring stick for both programs and might end up being a key win towards the postseason for whomever can walk away the winner.
