As the college basketball offseason continues to roll on, more and more college basketball non-conference schedules are being released. Ohio State University released its non-conference schedule this morning and will open up the season against Robert Morris University on Nov. 7.

This is now the fourth known game on the docket for the Colonials non-conference schedule this season as they are set to take on Dayton, and Marshall, and play three games in the Savannah Invitational MTE.

The last time these two schools faced off was back in 2017 in Columbus where the Buckeyes came out victorious in RMU’s season opener, defeating the Colonials by a final score of 95-64.

Robert Morris returns four starters from last year’s squad including Kahliel Spear, Enoch Cheeks, Matt Mayers, and Michael Green, along with a slew of incoming Freshmen and transfers. They will try to finally make some headway in their third season in the Horizon League as Andy Toole begins his 13th season at the helm.
