Ah, this is more like it … another piece of the Maryland basketball schedule decisively revealed.

Florida Atlantic, led by former George Washington coach Mike Jarvis, will swing through Comcast Center on Dec. 27 for an 8 p.m. tip. It will be the first meeting between the schools.


This doesn’t have the look of an RPI helper; the Owls went 6-26 a year ago and had an RPI of 313.

Nonetheless, onto the incomplete schedule it goes. The full 30-game slate probably won’t be announced until late August, but here’s a look at what is for certain as of now:

Nov. 23-25: Maui Invitational (w/Arizona, Chaminade, Cincinnati, Colorado, Gonzaga, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin)

Dec. 1: at Indiana, 7:30
Dec. 6: vs. Villanova at Verizon Center (BB&T Classic), 7:30
Dec. 27: Florida Atlantic, 8

Jan. 3: at UNC Greensboro, 2

N.C. State (home-and-away)
