Ohio State's men's basketball program announced some massive news for the 2018-19 season this afternoon. The Buckeyes fan base will very much enjoy this.

Buckeye Nation has long been asking for Ohio State to play some games at St. John Arena. Value City Arena is nice, but it just doesn't have the homely, classic college basketball feel that the Buckeyes' old arena does.

Thankfully, Ohio State is returning to its old stomping grounds - for a game, at least.

"You asked, we delivered. November 23. We return to where it all started," Ohio State's basketball account tweeted.

Ohio State will be hosting Cleveland State at St. John Arena on Nov. 23.

Ohio State is very excited about this.

Ohio State opens its 2018-19 regular season on the road against an in-state rival. The Buckeyes will be taking on Cincinnati on Nov. 7. That'll be a fun one.
