The Big Ten tournament is set and Maryland women's basketball’s path to another Big Ten title has been revealed.

Head coach Brenda Frese and the Terps will enter the Big Ten tournament as the No. 4 seed, meaning that they will receive a double-bye to begin the event, which will have its first round start on Wednesday. Maryland will play the winner of Indiana vs. Rutgers/Penn State on Friday in the quarterfinals at 2 p.m.

The Terps were able to secure the No. 4 seed after beating No. 10 Indiana in College Park by a score of 67-64. The win over the Hoosiers gave Maryland its 21-7 overall record ahead of the postseason. No. 1 seed Ohio State, No. 2 seed Iowa and No. 3 seed Michigan are the three programs ahead of the Terps in this year’s seeding.

Maryland’s 13-4 conference record didn’t come easy. All of Maryland’s final four games of the regular season came against ranked opponents. In that span, the Terps beat Iowa, Ohio State and Indiana, all of which are ranked. The only loss to close out the regular season came against Michigan on the road.

Maryland will enter the Big Ten tournament having won nine of its last 10 regular season games.
