The Big Ten announced the 2022-23 men’s basketball conference schedule Thursday, including 20 conference matchups for first-year head coach Kevin Willard and Maryland.
The Terps begin conference play on Dec. 2 at home against Illinois and Dec. 6 at Wisconsin, part of a challenging five-game stretch that also includes games against Louisville, Tennessee and UCLA.
After three weeks of continued nonconference play, Maryland’s Big Ten schedule kicks fully into gear with a trip to Michigan on New Year’s Day. The Wolverines will come to College Park on Jan. 19.
The Terps have four weekend home games against Big Ten teams: Ohio State on Jan. 8, Nebraska on Jan. 28, Penn State on Feb. 11 and Northwestern on Feb. 26 — the final home game of the season.
Other home games include matchups with Wisconsin, Indiana, Purdue and Minnesota.
Maryland only plays Rutgers, Iowa and Michigan State on the road this year, in addition to return games against all other Big Ten teams except for Indiana, Illinois and Northwestern. The Terps’ final two games of the 2022-23 season will come away from XFINITY Center, traveling to Ohio State on Mar. 1 and Penn State on Mar. 5.
The 2023 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament will be held Mar. 8-12 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
