No. 4 Maryland men’s lacrosse released its schedule for the upcoming season on Wednesday.
Following an early exit from the NCAA Tournament last year, head coach John Tillman hopes to bring his Terps back to the caliber of their 2017 championship season.
Maryland is currently slated to match up against six Inside Lacrosse preseason top-20 teams in 2020. It will kick off its season with a home matchup against No. 17 High Point on Feb. 1, followed by a colossal bout against fellow top-five team, No. 5 UPenn.
The Terps will also get a crack at getting revenge on the top-ranked Virginia Cavaliers at Capital One Field on March 14 after their unceremonious exit from last season’s tournament.
Five straight home games will be played in College Park, spanning from Feb. 15 against the Quakers to Mar. 14 against the Cavaliers. The Terps will also host an additional two other home games against Big Ten foes Rutgers and Ohio State in the first couple of weeks of April, with specific dates still to be determined.
