According to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, the Ohio State basketball team will play in the Battle 4 Atlantis next fall.

The preseason tournament is held at Atlantis Paradise Island on Paradise Island in Nassau, Bahamas. Games will be played in the Imperial Arena, a grand ballroom that is turned into a makeshift basketball venue.

The field will reportedly include Creighton, Duke, Texas A&M, Utah, West Virginia, Wichita State and an eighth team to be announced at a later date.

The Buckeyes have never played in the Battle 4 Atlantis, which is typically held in late November. Head coach Chris Holtmann led Butler to a third-place finish at the event in 2014, however.

Schools are awarded $2 million in exchange for their participation in the event, which has been televised on ESPN each fall since its inception in 2011.

Exact dates and ticket information have not yet been announced.
