Ahead of their first basketball campaign in the AAC, the Cincinnati Bearcats are going with a new tradition to get fans pumped up for the season. The school will be holding an event titled “Midday Madness” outdoors near Cincinnati’s Fountain Square. The Bearcats had a court specially built for the occasion, which is reusable for the future. It looks great: Awesome. RT @bearcatroy: A view from 26. @GoBEARCATS pic.twitter.com/RdkAQIQPTZ — Cincinnati Bearcats (@GoBEARCATS) October 17, 2013 #BearcatsMiddayMadness is all set and ready to go.
