Buckeyes basketball is back! Tickets are officially on sale for this year Agonis Tip-Off Event set to be held on October 22nd. Coach Thad Matta will speak at the event and fans can see this years edition of the team practice. Fans will also be allowed to talk and hangout with former Buckeye basketball greats as well as take part in the raffle. As a token of appreciation, the team will give each fan that attends a team picture that will be signed by every member of the team.
The cost is $75 per person over the age of thirteen, $35 if under thirteen. All proceeds from ticket sales and the auction will go towards the basketball program to help OSU run at the highest level possible.
That high level is what fans have to come to expect year in and year out. After reaching the elite eight last season, the Buckeyes return four of their five starters and look to reach another Final Four and win that elusive NCAA championship. Behind their gritty leader Aaron Craft, Ohio State will look to reclaim supremacy in the Big Ten after watching their arch rivals from Michigan make it all the way to the championship game last season.
Ohio State’s first game is on November 9th against Morgan State in the Schottenstein Center. Look for Buckeye nation to be out in full force and follow scarletandgame.com for every Buckeye news report!
