Renovated Fifth Third Arena reopens: a photo gallery

The University of Cincinnati reopened Fifth Third Arena in November, following an $87 million renovation. The new season at the re-imagined arena featured a ribbon-cutting, the men's basketball opener against Ohio State University, the first regular season game between the two in 99 years, and a victory at the annual Skyline Chili Crosstown shootout.
