Maryland to Play Seattle, College of Charleston in Coaches vs. Cancer Classic

We already know that Maryland will play a few good teams in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. They'll get two of Texas, Pittsburgh, and Illinois. They also get a few warm-up games in College Park, and those were announced today: the Terps will play Seattle and the College of Charleston on Nov. 8 and 10 respectively.

The pre-Garden matchups are rarely great, but there's definitely some interesting storylines to these ones. Seattle is coached by Cameron Dollar, the former UCLA star, and they demolished Oregon State last season - right after someone requested OSU's coach to be Gary's replacement. They also struggled against some very average competition, and at one point finished a game with four men on the floor. Their leading scorer, Charles Garcia, headed pro in the offseason, so they're likely the weaker of the two opponents.

Meanwhile, College of Charleston is most known for beating UNC last year. UNC wasn't great last year, but that's as much proof as you'll ever get that no game is a gimme. Oh, and Bobby Cremins is the coach, so that's always interesting. CoC returns three starters from last year's team, including leading scorer and shooting guard, Andrew Goudelock.

Both games should be moderately easy victories, and both teams should be good enough to not cause any serious harm to Maryland's RPI, which could be crucial come March.

The offseason schedule, which now includes these two in addition to Temple, Penn State, and Villanova, is almost set. All we're waiting for is the BB&T Classic opponent. Notre Dame, maybe? They played a few years ago, and would make sense.
