Terps hit road late
Question of the Day
Maryland released its basketball schedule Tuesday, a slate featuring back-to-back home games with North Carolina and Duke in late February and no true road games until Jan. 14.
The Terrapins, coming off a 19-15 season that ended with a second-round ouster in the NIT, will open Nov. 14 against Bucknell.
Snippets of the schedule have seeped out throughout the summer, including the Nov. 27-30 Old Spice Classic that includes a meeting with Michigan State and the Dec. 7 BB&T Classic game against George Washington.
But there were still a few interesting snippets released yesterday, including a Dec. 22 meeting with American at Comcast Center exactly a year to the day of the Eagles’ 67-59 victory over the Terps.
Maryland also drew consecutive games at Comcast against North Carolina (Feb. 21) and Duke (Feb. 25) in the latter stages of the regular season. The Terps also play only two Sunday night conference games - their fewest since Fox Sports Net began airing an ACC Sunday package in 2001-02.
The Jan. 10 conference opener against Georgia Tech is the Terps’ latest since 1975-76 and their first after New Year’s Day since 2000-01. Maryland plays its first true road game four days later at Miami.
Among its 12 certain nonconference opponents, two - Michigan State and American - reached the NCAA tournament. Only one other opponent (Charlotte) joined those teams in the top 100 of the RPI.
