The road to the 2015 Men’s Final Four will go through the Buckeye state as Columbus was once again rewarded a 2nd and 3rd site and for the very first time, Cleveland will play host to one of the four regional sites.  The games will be played at Quicken Loans Arena March 26/28 and will be hosted by the Mid American Conference as a Midwest Regional site.  Cleveland last hosted NCAA tournament games two years ago with Ohio State winning two games handily as a one-seed.

Here’s are the newly unveiled sites in both 2014 and 2015, courtesy of NCAA.org
