Ohio State will host the first two rounds of the tournament in St. John Arena. The Buckeyes will open the tournament by playing the #13 seed University of Central Florida on Saturday at 1:30pm in a game that will be televised on one of the ESPN networks. If OSU wins that game, they will face the winner of the game between #5 seed Georgia Tech and #12 seed Bowling Green next Monday evening. Look for a complete preview of Ohio State’s first game later in the week.
