The Big Ten released its schedule of women's basketball games Monday afternoon. All 18 of Maryland's league games will appear on one network or another beginning with their very first B1G contest when they host Ohio State on December 29th. That game, with a tip off scheduled for 7 pm will be shown on the Big Ten Network.
BTN will air seven or eight additional Maryland games and with four or five limited to BTN Plus. Five conference games are scheduled to close the regular season on March 1. These games have not game times or a broadcast medium announced. It's likely that the conference standings will make that final determination.
In addition to the games on BTN and BTN Plus, four Terrapins games will be featured on ESPN2. Maryland's first Big Ten road contest, a January third clash at Nebraska will be featured on CBS.
At least one other Maryland game, the Final Four rematch against Notre Dame to be played in Ft. Wayne as part of the B1G-ACC Challenge, should air on national television. The network for that contest has not been announced.
