Another day, another Maryland basketball scheduling tidbit.
Big South member Radford will pay a visit to Maryland on Dec. 23, according to a schedule released by the southwestern Virginia school. The game will tip off at 8 p.m. and be televised by CSN, according to Radford.
It will be the first meeting between the two schools. Radford, which won the Big South in 2009, went 5-24 a year ago and just 2-24 against Division I competition. The Highlanders’ RPI was 333 out of 347 teams nationally last season.
