Terps to Play Villanova in the BB&T Classic

Just about everyone involved in the BB&T Classic, the DC-area in-season "tournament", has been trying to get Georgetown to join in recently. They've continued to refuse, but the tournament, which Maryland participates in, just got a lot more interesting with a new addition: Villanova. Nova has been on fire lately, and not just on floor (they reached the Final Four, remember), as their recruiting class was #1 in the nation before Calipari worked his "magic" at Kentucky. Two of their recruits are from the area, as both Isaiah Armwood and Mouphtauo Yarou attended Montrose Christian.

The Terps actually play the Wildcats in the first round this year, which could be very interesting if Greivis stays. Nova also has their star in limbo - Scottie Reynolds is in the same position Vasquez is right now, with one foot out the door but with the potential to stay. I believe Nova will join Maryland, George Washington, and George Mason, with more schools to be announced later.

The same article mentions that Maryland took a road game against UNC Greensboro. I don't exactly understand why we are playing at UNCG, but I guess the road part means we won't see a drop in RPI for it?
