Maryland men’s basketball will not play its game on Dec. 28 against Loyola (Md.) Greyhounds because of COVID-19 protocols within the Loyola program, per a release from today.
The Terps are still “actively seeking a replacement” team for that game.
This is Maryland’s first cancellation of the 2021-22 season. Loyola was having problems with COVID-19 ever since it canceled its game that was set to be against No. 2 Duke on Dec. 18. The Greyhounds also had their matchup against Goucher canceled, and that was supposed to be played on Dec. 21.
The Terps, who sit with a 6-4 record, haven’t played since upsetting then-No. 20 Florida in Brooklyn, New York at the Basketball Hall of Fame Invitational on Dec. 12. If Maryland is unable to find a replacement for the now-canceled Loyola game, then its next scheduled matchup is on Dec. 30 in a matchup with Brown.
After Brown, Maryland’s Big Ten slate resumes with road games against Iowa and Illinois.
