Ohio State Releases 2013-14 Men's Basketball Schedule

By Kyle Rowland on August 28, 2013 at 2:05p

The 10th season of the Thad Matta era – and 102nd in school history – will feature 10 games on ESPN or CBS.

The highlights of the non-conference schedule are games against Marquette, Maryland, Notre Dame and Ohio University.

The game against the Fighting Irish is part of the Gotham Classic and will be played at Madison Square Garden.

The Buckeyes are slated to play at least 11 games against 2013 NCAA Tournament teams. Seven of those games will be played away from Value City Arena. Ohio State also has four games against teams that made the NIT last season.

Matta has engineered the Buckeyes to three of the last four Big Ten regular-season and tournament titles. The quest for another conference championship will begin at Purdue on New Year’s Eve.

“The makeup of our team this year gives us another opportunity to be successful in the Big Ten and nationally,” Matta said. “Once again our league is extraordinarily talented across the board. We are fortunate to have a veteran group this year who have been through the rigors of the conference season and have been successful in postseason play.”
