The official start of the Kevin Willard era for Maryland men’s basketball, along with the start of year 21 for Brenda Frese and Maryland women’s basketball is exactly six weeks away.

With the season around the corner, both teams had their TV schedule and tip times announced by the Big Ten last week.

The men will begin their season by hosting Niagara at 7 p.m. on Nov. 7 — a game that will be aired on BTN Plus. The women will begin their season at the same time on the same date, but their opener at George Mason will be on ESPN+.

Key highlights from the men’s schedule include nine games on the ESPN family of networks. The Terps’ Dec. 14 home game against UCLA will air on FOX Sports 1 at 9 p.m. Willard’s squad opens conference play at home against Illinois on Dec. 2 at either 7 or 9 p.m. on Big Ten Network.

The women’s schedule, which has four games on the ESPN family of networks, includes some landmark achievements. Maryland’s Dec. 11 home game vs. Connecticut will be the first-ever Big Ten women’s regular season game to air on ABC. Frese’s group will also have eight games on the Big Ten Network. Television information for road matchups against Notre Dame and Baylor will be revealed at a later date.
