Maryland men’s basketball’s conference opponents for the 2023-24 season was released Tuesday.

The Terps will face off against Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Northwestern, Penn State and Rutgers in home-and-home series.

They’ll play against Michigan, Nebraska and Purdue only at home. Solely on the road, they’ll take on Minnesota, Ohio State and Wisconsin.

Last season, Maryland struggled mightily on the road. It finished 1-9 away from home in the Big Ten, with its only win coming against last-place Minnesota. Some of those nine losses were ugly, too. The Terps lost by 35 points to Michigan and by 14 to both Iowa and Rutgers.

However, Maryland had a season to remember when playing in College Park. The Terps finished 16-1 overall at home, and 10-0 in the Big Ten. They took down three ranked teams at XFINITY Center, including an upset over No. 3 Purdue.

Six of the seven teams Maryland will face both home and away made the NCAA Tournament last season.

The Terps will look to improve on last year’s 11-9 mark in conference play.
