A potential matchup with California would be an interesting scenario for former Cal transfer Justice Sueing, who led the Golden Bears in scoring in 2017-18 and 2018-19, and will take the floor with Ohio State for the first time this fall.
The Fort Myers Tip-Off in 2021 sets head coach Chris Holtmann one early-season tournament, which is his preference, for the next three seasons.
The Scarlet and Gray will compete in the Battle 4 Atlantis event in the Bahamas early in the 2020-21 season, which also includes Duke, Creighton, Memphis, Texas A&M, Utah, West Virginia and Wichita State.
The year after the Fort Myers Tip-Off, the Buckeyes are schedules to participate in the Maui Invitational early in the 2022-23 campaign, with the field still to be determined.
