Cincinnati had a customized jersey made for Charles Barkley before tonight’s game against UCLA.
On Friday, Barkley said he is openly rooting against UCLA in this year’s tournament, due to his ongoing feud with LaVar Ball, the father of UCLA star Lonzo Ball. Barkley wore a Kent State jersey on the CBS set the other day when the Bruins played KSU.
With that in mind, Cincinnati had this No. 34 Barkley jersey made, presumably for Sir Charles to wear this evening.

We’ll see if Barkley ultimately wears the jersey.
UCLA and Cincinnati are the final game of the night from Sacramento. Tip off is set for approximately 9:40 p.m. E.T. on TBS.
