The Ohio State men’s basketball team is scheduled to play a home-and-home series against the University of Connecticut, coach Thad Matta announced Wednesday via a press release.

OSU’s matchup with the Huskies is set to begin Dec. 12, 2015 when the Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to Connecticut. The Huskies are then scheduled to visit Columbus Dec. 12, 2016 at the Schottenstein Center.

According to the release, the 2015 game will take place in one of two locations: the Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Conn., or the XL Center in Hartford, Conn.

The Buckeyes hold a 3-1 all-time record against Connecticut, with the most recent matchup coming in 1992 when OSU beat the Huskies 78-75 in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Connecticut’s lone win in the series came with a 72-67 victory against OSU in the 1988 NIT Championship Game. The Buckeyes beat the Huskies in Columbus in 1983 and in Hartford, Conn., in 1984.

OSU’s 2014 season is scheduled to begin Nov. 14 against the University of Massachusetts-Lowell in Columbus.
