Maryland baseball wrapped up its regular season with a win over the weekend, so it’s conference tourney time.
The Big Ten has released the full bracket for the conference tournament, with the Terps as the No. 4 seed. Maryland opens postseason play against No. 5-seed Iowa Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The tournament is double-elimination, which is why the bracket looks a little confusing, but the main point is win or lose, the Terps will play against either No. 1 Nebraska or No. 8 Purdue in the second round. Whether they play the winner or the loser of that game depends on whether they win or lose their own game.
Maryland didn’t face Iowa or Purdue this season, and went 1-2 in their series against top-seeded Nebraska. The Terps will play between two and five games this week; they need four wins to take home the tournament title.
