Due to the unforgotten brawl from this past season, which resulted in eight players being suspended, Xavier University and the University of Cincinnati have both decided that a change of scenery is in order for their annual rivalry game.

For the next two seasons, the annual basketball game between the two Queen City schools will be played in downtown Cincinnati at U.S. Bank Arena.

The arena, which seats 17,000 for basketball, was opened on September 9, 1975. It is the regular home for the Cincinnati Cyclones hockey team of the ECHL.

U.S. Bank Arena sits on the Ohio River behind the leftfield scoreboard of Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds.

San Diego Padres pitcher Aaron Harang, who played for the Reds from 2003-2010, was honored by the Cincinnati Reds during this past weekend’s series with the Padres in town for his charitable contributions to Greater Cincinnati.

Harang was involved in numerous community-service projects during his Queen City tenure, including the “Miracle League Field” project, for which he donated more than $60,000. The complex, which provided a baseball field for children with disabilities, opened on his birthday of May 9 in 2009.

Harang also spearheaded “Aaron’s Aces,” which gave Reds tickets and T-shirt’s, to families of military personnel serving the United States overseas. Harang took his program to San Diego, which is one of the biggest military cities in the nation. Jay Bruce has taken over the program in Cincinnati.

Wearing uniform number 39, Harang led the National League in wins (16) and strikeouts (216) in 2006.

Harang is still a favorite of Reds fans.

The #2 ranked player on the WTA Tour, Clijsters was aiming to be the first woman to repeat as champion of the Western & Southern Open since the WTA returned to Cincinnati in 2004. The last player to repeat in the Queen City was Peaches Bartkowicz in 1966-67.

Clijsters retired from her second round match Tuesday in Toronto against Jie Zheng after suffering a left abdominal strain.
