Bearcats Women’s Basketball and Volleyball play at St. Ursula Academy in 2017-18

In March it was announced that the Men’s Basketball team will play their home games at BB&T Arena, the home of the Northern Kentucky Norse while Fifth Third Arena goes through its new makeover during the 2017-18 season, but what we didn’t know is where the Women’s Basketball and Volleyball teams will play. On Tuesday we finally got that answer, drumroll please…. St. Ursula Academy’s Gymnasium & Convocation Center.

The good thing about playing at St. Ursula is that it is only 2 miles from campus so fans will be able to support both teams without much of a hassle. They will also get the pre and post-game Clifton venues something the Men’s team won’t benefit from

Cincinnati Bearcats AD Mike Bohn said this in a press release:

“The close location is a great convenience for fans and supporters of our women’s basketball and volleyball programs,” Bohn said. “It’s going to be a tough place to play for our opponents next season when the stands are packed with Bearcats fans.”  

“The facility being down the street from campus and the quality of the venue are huge benefits to our programs,” Bohn said. “They have given us the ability to maintain a normal schedule for both sports and playing at one true home site will be minimally disruptive to our student-athlete’s experience.”

Address: 1310 E. McMillan Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45206

Managing Editor of Bearcat Insider, I've been on the BCI team the last couple of years. I made the final four in the Biggest Big East Fan contest in 2011, I covered UC also on Cincy on the Prowl. I'm just a lefty trying to get buckets in this game called life Van Exel style.
