Women’s basketball is returning in all its glory for another exciting season in the Big Ten. With how much change Maryland has dealt with this offseason, fans are curious to see how head coach Brenda Frese’s group matches up against the rest of the league.

Sept. 7 featured the release of the conference schedule in a special edition of “B1G Today.” The Terps open the Big Ten slate hosting Nebraska on Dec. 4. The Huskers return the reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Year in Alexis Markowski.

Opening the conference slate with three games in seven days will test the Terps. Especially since that third game is against UConn on Dec. 11, which Maryland touted all season. UConn is a nonconference opponent, but certainly a big test for the new-look Terrapins.

Late February will test Maryland the most when it plays Caitlin Clark’s Iowa Hawkeyes on Feb. 2 and 21, and the reigning regular-season champion, Ohio State, in Columbus on Feb. 5 and 25.
