Ohio State's NCAA Tournament journey will begin in Columbus as the Buckeyes earned a No. 3 seed and will host the opening weekend's games, facing off against No. 14 seed George Washington on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. to begin tournament play.
The Buckeyes are in the Spokane, Washington regional along with No. 1 seed Notre Dame and No. 2 seed Oregon and would face the winner of Saturday's game between No. 6 seed LSU and No. 11 seed Central Michigan with a win over George Washington.

This is Ohio State's fourth-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and the Buckeyes are looking to make the Sweet 16 for the third-straight season. Ohio State hasn't made the Elite 8 since the 1993 season when it finished as the NCAA runner up.
The Buckeyes have eyes on the Final Four for a special reason this season: it will be played in Columbus, just down the street from campus in Nationwide Arena. If Ohio State can make it that far, the Buckeyes would play in front of a home-town crowd.
But first, Ohio State has to survive and advance through the first round, which will begin Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in St. John Arena and will be broadcast on ESPN2.
