Maryland men’s basketball will host Saint Joseph’s as part of its 2020-21 nonconference slate, college basketball analyst Jon Rothstein reported Monday.

The Hawks join Duquesne, California Baptist and San Jose State as four of the Terps’ nonconference opponents for next season, though no official announcement has been made by the program.

Saint Joseph’s went 6-26 in 2019-20, including a 2-16 record in Atlantic 10 play, to finish 260th in KenPom’s rankings. But unlike Maryland, the Hawks won’t face any major losses coming into next season as they return their top-five leading scorers.

The two programs have only met four times before, with their most recent matchup in 1982. Maryland has a 3-1 edge in the series and will look to extend that when the two squads meet for the first time in nearly 40 years.
