The Big Ten revealed Maryland basketball’s conference opponents Thursday afternoon. For the first time ever, the conference will feature 20 league games on the men’s side and 18 for the women.
The men will play seven home-and-home games with six single-play opponents; three at home and three on the road. The Terps’ lone game against Illinois will be classified as a home game, but will be played at Madison Square Garden as a part of the Big Ten’s “Super Saturday—College Hoops & Hockey” doubleheader.
Maryland will play home and away contests against Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue and Wisconsin. The Terps will get Illinois, Indiana and Northwestern at home, and will have to travel to Iowa, Michigan State and Rutgers.
