For the first time in more than ten years, Maryland men’s basketball is heading into its opening contest of the season with someone other than Mark Turgeon at the helm. The new man in charge is Kevin Willard, and with him comes renewed excitement for a new-look Maryland culture.

The Terps’ opponent in their first game is Niagara, out of the MAAC (Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference). The Purple Eagles finished last year in the middle of the pack in the MAAC with a record of 14-16 (9-11 in conference). Niagara features freshman guard Shane Lancaster who played his high school ball locally at St. John’s College High School, the alma mater of former Maryland star Anthony Cowan.

Monday’s contest is one of a string of early games in which the Terps will be big-time favorites and should represent a chance to get some kinks worked out and shake off the rust.
