After a bounce-back win over St. Peter’s last week, Maryland men’s basketball faces one last opponent in 2022.
Its opponent, UMBC, has played a very weak nonconference schedule. The Retrievers lost to Princeton by 30 and have one-possession wins against Central Connecticut State and Loyola Maryland, both teams ranked below No. 300 at KenPom.com. Currently, UMBC is ranked No. 227 at KenPom but has an above-average offense.
This game is both schools' last nonconference game before their respective conference games begin; UMBC has one more non-league contest in January. The Terps look to close their nonconference schedule with 10 total wins.
Maryland: 9-3 (1-1 Big Ten)
UMBC: 9-4 (0-0 America East)
All-time series: Maryland leads, 14-0
