Maryland men’s basketball will host the Navy Midshipmen and Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers in a three-team, two-game tournament right after Thanksgiving, CBS insider Jon Rothstein reported.

In the round-robin event at Xfinity Center, the Terps will face Navy on Friday, Nov. 27 and Mount St. Mary’s on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Maryland hasn’t faced either of these schools since November 2018. The Terps defeated the Midshipmen, 78-57, in Annapolis and were victorious against the Mountaineers in a 92-77 game at Xfinity Center. Then-sophomore guard Darryl Morsell reached double-digit scoring in both games.

While much remains unclear about Maryland’s schedule for the 2020-21 season, the team announced last week that it will take on Clemson in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
