The Google News search is strong today, offering up a second nonconference date for the Maryland basketball team.
This time, it’s Eastern Kentucky, an Ohio Valley member coming off an 18-13 season and an RPI of 173.
So the Colonels’ Dec. 12 date with Maryland at Comcast Center has a chance to be a little more productive than some of the Terrapins’ other nonconference home dates.
And that means Maryland’s partial schedule now looks a little like this:
Nov. 3: Indiana, Pa. (exhibition)
Nov. 17: Fairfield
Nov. 23: at Chaminade, 9:30
Nov. 24: vs. Cincinnati/Vanderbilt at Maui Invitational
Nov. 25: vs. Arizona/Colorado/Gonzaga/Wisconsin at Maui Invitational
Dec. 1: at Indiana, 7:30
Dec. 6: vs. Villanova at Verizon Center (BB&T Classic), 7:30
Dec. 12: Eastern Kentucky, 2
Dec. 22: Winston-Salem State
Dec. 27: Florida Atlantic, 8
Dec. 30: William & Mary
Jan. 3: at UNC Greensboro, 2
