Another Ohio State men's basketball game will not take place as originally scheduled.

A winter storm in Columbus and travel problems in Iowa have led to the postponement of Thursday night's 8 p.m. tip-off between the Buckeyes and Hawkeyes at the Schottenstein Center, per a release from Ohio State Thursday morning.

Iowa experienced a mechanical issue with its team plane Wednesday night, delaying its travels until Thursday morning, but the weather in Ohio forced the Hawkeyes to call off their trip. Ohio State canceled in-person classes on Thursday due to the storm.

Ohio State now has two postponed Big Ten games to reschedule, as the Buckeyes’ Jan. 22 game against Nebraska was also postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak at Nebraska. The Buckeyes’ non-conference games against Kentucky, New Orleans and UT Martin in December were also canceled due to a pause in team activities at Ohio State following a COVID outbreak within the Buckeye program.

The Buckeyes' next game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. tip-off Sunday at home against Maryland.
