Ohio State will head to the Sunshine State in late November to participate in the Fort Myers Tip-Off, the event announced on Wednesday afternoon. Florida, California and Seton Hall are the other three teams that'll be involved in the games.

The early-season tournament will be held over the Thanksgiving holiday, and the Buckeyes will play two games. Their opponents, dates of games, games times and television designations have not been announced.

The Gators went 15-10 last season, falling to Oral Roberts in the Round of 32. Kevin Willard's Pirates managed a 14-13 record, and the Golden Bears went 9-20 in Mark Fox's second season as head coach.

These tournaments in November are expected to be a mainstay of the Chris Holtmann era. Ohio State was set to play in the Battle 4 Atlantis last year before it got canceled, and it plans to participate in the Maui Invitational at some point in the next couple of years.
