The Shockers announced the bout with OSU earlier in the week, but the game against Cleveland State is a new one.
The Vikings went 19-8 last season, winning the Horizon League regular season and conference tournament, booking a trip to Indianapolis for The Big Dance. Cleveland State drew a 15 seed and fell to eventual Final Four participant Houston (a team also on OSU’s noncon schedule) in the first round.
It’s just the second time OSU and Cleveland State have met on the hardwood. The last meeting was a 92-66 OSU victory in 1981.
Including conference games, OSU will play 17 games against 2021 NCAA Tournament teams this upcoming season.
