What to Watch

Friday

Track and Field at Big Ten Indoor Championships (10:00 a.m.)

Maryland heads to Geneva, Ohio for the Big Ten Championships. The women's side took eighth in the Big Ten last year. While the Terps lost some heavy hitters from last year's squad, head coach Andrew Valmon says that he is counting on more people to step up and fill that void.

Softball vs. Boston University (11:15 a.m.)

After last week's tournament in Atlanta, Maryland softball heads even further south this weekend. Their destination? Boca Raton, Florida. After a disappointing road trip, where they went 1-4, the Terps are looking to put a winning streak together.

Baseball at home vs. Rhode Island (1:00 p.m.)

It's Friday night and that means one thing, Mike Shawaryn. Maryland's "can't miss" pitcher will make his second start of the season.

Softball vs. Columbia (1:30 p.m.)

The Terps will turn around and play Columbia after they're done with Boston. Maryland has yet to sweep a doubleheader this season.

Gymnastics at New Hampshire (7:30 p.m.)

After a good performance at home against Penn State on Monday, the GymTerps hit the road.

Saturday

Women's Tennis at Penn (Noon)

Maryland women's tennis got back in the win column after their 6-1 triumph over Boston last week. Can the Terrapins maintain that momentum? They'll find out in the City of Brotherly Love.

No. 1 Women's Lacrosse at No. 5 UNC (1:00 p.m.)

Two perennial national title contenders. These two programs have combined to win the last three national titles. UNC beat Maryland in triple overtime for the national championship in 2013, and Maryland returned the favor last season by beating the Tar Heels. This is the first true test of the season for the top-ranked Terps.

No. 4 Men's Lacrosse at No. 7 Yale (1:00 p.m.)

Maryland trailed against High Point at halftime in their season opener, but came back and won, 15-10. The Terps head to New Haven for a top-10 showdown in their second game of the season.

Softball vs. Columbia (1:30 p.m.)

After playing Columbia in their second game of their Day One doubleheader, Maryland will face the Lions in their Day Two opener.

Baseball at home vs. Rhode Island (2:00 p.m.)

The Terps take the field against the Rams in the second game of their three game series.

Men's Basketball at Purdue (4:00 p.m.)

A huge, nationally televised road game looms for the Terps as they head to West Lafayette to take on ranked Purdue. The Paint Crew is one of the best student sections in the conference. Mackey Arena will be deafening.

Softball vs. Florida Atlantic (8:15 p.m.)

Maryland softball will play under the lights in their second game of the day.

Sunday

Softball vs. Stony Brook (11:15 a.m.)

The Terps won't have too much time to get ready for their fifth and final game of the weekend, a meeting with the Stony Brook Seawolves.

Women's Tennis at Rutgers (Noon)

Maryland women's tennis starts conference play on the road. The Terps will take on the Scarlet Knights in Piscataway.

Baseball at home vs. Rhode Island (1:00 p.m.)

Maryland baseball will look to finish their series with Rhode Island on a high note in the third and final game.

Gymnastics at George Washington (1:00 p.m.)

This will be Maryland's fourth meet in 10 days. How will the Terps respond to that kind of mental and physical grind? Their performance at GW will speak volumes.

Women's Basketball at home vs. Minnesota (5:00 p.m.)

Maryland women's basketball takes on Minnesota on national TV on senior day. The bottom line is that Maryland is tied with Ohio State atop the Big Ten standings. Ohio State plays at Michigan State on Saturday. If both teams win, Maryland and Ohio State will be co-Big Ten Champions. Maryland controls their own destiny. Standing in their way is the possible Big Ten Player of the Year, and literal scoring machine, Rachel Banham.
