Maryland men’s basketball unveiled its 20-game Big Ten schedule Wednesday, exactly one week from the start of the regular season.

Each team in the conference will play seven teams twice and six teams once. The schedule also includes two sets of collapsible byes Jan. 18-21 and Jan. 25-28, and Feb. 22-25 and March 1-5 in the event that games have to be rescheduled.

Maryland will face No. 25 Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Purdue, Penn State, No. 24 Rutgers and No. 7 Wisconsin twice, while only facing No. 8 Illinois, No. 5 Iowa, Indiana, No. 13 Michigan State, Northwestern and No. 23 Ohio State once.

Head coach Mark Turgeon’s squad will look to build off last season, in which it finished with a 14-6 record in conference to clinch a share of the Big Ten regular season championship.

The Terps will kick off the 2020-21 Big Ten campaign at home against Rutgers on Dec. 14. After facing La Salle on Dec. 22, they will face strictly conference opponents, starting with a road trip to Purdue on Christmas Day.

The Big Ten Tournament is set to take place March 10-14 at United Center in Chicago.
