Maryland men’s basketball will host the La Salle Explorers on Dec. 22, the team’s newest opponent announced in its non-conference schedule Monday.
This is the Terps’ sixth non-conference game on the schedule thus far, as games against Old Dominion, Navy, Mount St. Mary’s, George Mason and Clemson — the only away game — have been confirmed.
The game will be just the fourth meeting between the two teams and the first since Dec. 27, 1994, a 96-80 Terps win at Cole Field House. Maryland owns a 3-0 record against La Salle that dates back to the 1983 Maryland Invitational Tournament in College Park, when the Terps knocked off the Explorers, 96-83, to win the tourney.
With the team also scheduled to host the George Mason Patriots for the second straight year on Dec. 4, this will be Maryland’s second game against an Atlantic-10 opponent.
