The Terps open the season on November 14th against Bucknell at and then face
Following the Old Spice Classic, where
The Terps don’t play their first true “road” game until January 14th, when they travel to
Also, for the first time in a long time, the Terps won’t be playing in a random ACC game in the middle of their non-conference schedule. Although I was always slightly annoyed with that random ACC game, I thought it was a good way for the Terps to measure themselves and see where they have to get before the “official” ACC schedule started.
The Terps have a tough ACC schedule this year as they have to play UNC, Duke,
One ofthe toughest part of the schedule appears to be from Jan. 24th – Feb. 8th, during which the Terps have to go to Duke, get BC and
Another rough patch hits from Feb. 17-25th, which might be the hardest part of the schedule as over the course of a week, the Terps must go to Clemson and then play Carolina and Duke at home.
It should be an interesting season for Terps basketball. Tune back in later for more analysis on the schedule including predictions about the upcoming season.
Good to see the ACC Tourney this year in a state that does end in Carolina.
