College Hockey:
OSU To Open 1998-99 Season Without New Home

— The Schottenstein Center, the new multisport facility which will house Ohio State University’s basketball and hockey teams, is not expected to be ready for hockey until the middle of the 1998-99 season, according to recent reports.


OSU athletic director Andy Geiger told the Columbus (Oh.) Dispatch that although the arena may be ready in time for the start of the 1998-99 basketball season, the floor must be allowed to cure completely before the ice surface can be used.

A target date of Jan. 3, 1999, when OSU hosts the Michigan Wolverines, has been set for the debut of the arena as a hockey venue.
