In its fourth year since switching sides for the Big Ten-ACC Challenge, Maryland basketball will visit Syracuse as a part of the annual series, the conferences revealed Thursday.
The Terps are 0-3 in the series since joining the Big Ten. They lost to Virginia in 2014, North Carolina in 2015 and Pittsburgh in 2016. This is the second straight year Maryland will play a team that joined the ACC in 2013 and only overlapped with the Terps for one year.
Syracuse has missed two of the last three NCAA Tournaments, but made a run to the Final Four as a No. 10 seed in 2016. Last season, the Orange went 19-15, ending their season in the second round of the NIT.
Some other matchups to keep an eye on include Michigan at defending champion North Carolina, as well as reigning Big Ten Rookie of the Year Miles Bridges and Michigan State visiting Notre Dame.
Game times have not yet been announced.
