Wednesday brings with it another Maryland basketball schedule tidbit.

Morehead State will visit Comcast Center on Nov. 12 in what will almost certainly be the Terrapins’ second game of the season. It will be part of the on-campus portion of the Barclays Center Classic; Maryland and Kentucky play the first game in that building Nov. 9, and will get three home games in a rather creative exempt event. Lafayette and Long Island are the other two teams in the field.


Morehead State went 18-15 last season, finishing with an RPI of 166. The Eagles reached the NCAA tournament in 2009 and 2011, upsetting Louisville in the round of 64 in the latter appearance.

It will be the first meeting between Maryland and Morehead State.

Nov. 12: Morehead State
