Maryland is 9-1 all-time in the Challenge, most recently beating No. 7 Louisville on the road, 78-72, last season. Though Virginia leads the all-time series with the Terps, Maryland has won five of the last six games.
While the Terps went 32-3, won their third straight Big Ten regular season and tournament championship and made it to their eighth Sweet Sixteen in the Brenda Freese era last season, Virginia went 20-13 and advanced to the second round of the NIT.
Maryland misses a chance to play Duke senior Lexie Brown, who made two Final Fours with the Terps in 2014 and 2015. The Blue Devils will instead host Ohio State, while Notre Dame visits Michigan. Here's the full list of matchups.
