Ohio State will host the second and third rounds of the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Nationwide Arena

Ohio State will host the second and third rounds of the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

This will be the fourth time Nationwide Arena hosts early-round NCAA tournament games. Ohio State hosted second- and third-round games in 2012, and first- and second-round games in 2004 and 2007 (all games they have hosted are the round of 64 and round of 32).

The 2015 games will be played on March 20 and March 22. The 2015 Final Four will be at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the site of the 2010 Final Four.

Ohio State athletic director and associate vice president Gene Smith was pleased to be selected. "We are proud of the job the city and our scores of volunteers have done in the past. I know we'll provide an even better experience in 2015," Smith said.

Linda Logan, the executive director of the Greater Columbus Sports Commission, said, "It is a privilege to host NCAA championships in Columbus."
