The Ohio State men's basketball team announced its 2018 non-conference schedule Tuesday.
Buried in the bulletin is the announcement of the Buckeye Basketball Classic, a five-team classic coming to Columbus in November.
The Buckeyes will face:
- Purdue University Fort Wayne on Nov. 11
- South Carolina State on Nov. 18
- Samford on Nov. 20
- Cleveland State on Nov. 23 in St. John Arena
Of note, the game against Cleveland State comes on the eve of The Game, which should make for a rocking environment in the cozy confines of St. John Arena. Ohio State last played a home game at St. John Arena during in 2010, an 82-60 win over Western Carolina.
