Report: Big Ten home-and-home schedule for Ohio State men’s basketball

We may get to see two rounds of Buckeyes-Hoosiers this season.

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Ohio State vs Rutgers Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

While Ohio State basketball is still filling the open spots on the team, their Big Ten conference mirror contests—also known as the home-and-home contests—for the upcoming season were reported by Jon Rothstein.

Archie Miller, who was a fan favorite to take over the Buckeye basketball program after Thad Matta, took the Indiana job before Matta was relieved of his duties at OSU. Miller was the coach of the Dayton Flyers when they went on their Elite Eight run a few seasons ago, a run that included toppling an Aaron Craft-led Ohio State squad in the first weekend of the tournament.

The Buckeyes look to get redemption against the Hoosiers, who defeated the Buckeyes, 96-92, last season at Value City Arena on Senior Day.

Redemption will also be the name of the game with Rutgers and Iowa, as the Scarlet Knights defeated the Buckeyes in the first round of the Big Ten tournament, and the Hawkeyes defeated the Buckeyes midway through the conference slate.

On a better note, the Buckeyes could continue their winning ways against Michigan and Penn State, teams they defeated on the road last season. OSU toppled the Wolverines by four, and brought down the Nittany Lions on a last-second layup.

If these mirror contests hold up, then Ohio State would only face the likes of Michigan State, Maryland, Northwestern and Wisconsin once next season.
