Ohio Kings basketball honors Cincinnati State & Dr. Posey on Dec. 14

The Ohio Kings professional basketball team invites all Cincinnati State students, employees, and friends to "Cincinnati State Night" on Saturday, Dec. 14, in the Gym on Clifton Campus-- which also serves as the Ohio Kings' home court.

"Cincinnati State Night" starts at 5 p.m. and includes a special tribute from the Ohio Kings to Cincinnati State President Monica Posey.

The gym will become the KINGDOM when the home team takes on the South Bend Monarchs, in the second game of the Kings' inaugural season.

  • CState students with their Surge Card ID get a 50% discount on their ticket-- and can get a free haircut, too!
  • All students and employees will receive a 10% discount on Ohio Kings merchandise.

The Kings beat the Akron Aviators, 126-104, in front of a large crowd at the season's opening game on Dec. 7 (game photo at right).

The Ohio Kings are part of the re-established American Basketball Association (ABA), which has 70 teams and nearly 1,000 players competing at the professional level. Team members throughout the ABA include former NBA players, NCAA Division 1 and 2 players, McDonald's All American team members, and international athletes.

The ABA has unique rules that emphasize a faster-paced game, leading to higher scoring and more excitement for fans. These rules include:

  • Guard-driven play resulting in 48 minutes of high-paced action.
  • 7 seconds to get the ball across the half-court line (compared to 8 seconds in the NBA). If an ABA team does not get over the half-court line within 7 seconds, they must turn the ball over to the other team, and the 3D Light goes into effect.
  • When the 3D Light is on, scoring changes so a 2 point shot is worth 3 points, a 3 point shot is worth 4 points, and a half-court shot counts for 5 points.

The Kings will play seven additional home games at Cincinnati State during their season that lasts from December 2019 through early March 2020.

WDC welcomed clients & community leaders at Open House

The Workforce Development Center greeted numerous corporate partners and community leaders during the "Thank You" Open House held Dec. 10.

Place your printing orders promptly to start Spring smoothly

Faculty and staff members: If you're planning a large printing/duplicating request for Spring semester using the print/duplication services from the University of Cincinnati, you're encouraged to submit your order as soon as possible.

UC's Spring semester begins Jan. 13, a week before Cincinnati State's Jan. 21 Spring start.

Waiting until January to place your order means you'll be competing with demands from UC's faculty (and other CState requests), and your order might be delayed.

UC print/duplication services are available through Dec. 20.

All UC services are closed Dec. 23 through Jan. 1 (the same days Cincinnati State is closed for Winter Break) and open again starting Jan. 2, 2020.

The Print/Duplication Request eform is available at

If you have questions about print/duplication services, contact Tony Cowden in the Budget/Fiscal Planning Office (
