NCAA Womens Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament- Maryland vs Iowa Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

For the third and fourth years in a row, Maryland women’s basketball will face off against SEC powerhouse South Carolina during the nonconference schedule

It’s another home-and-home series between the schools, as the Terrapins will host the Gamecocks this upcoming season before traveling back to Columbia in 2020-21.

Maryland leads 2-1 in the all-time series record, as the teams have faced each other in 1997, 2017 and 2018. This past season on Nov. 18, the Terps went down to South Carolina and walloped the Gamecocks en route to an 85-61 victory. Blair Watson had her best performance of the season with 20 points, and Kaila Charles and Stephanie Jones combined for 35 of their own.

Maryland received a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, falling to No. 6-seed UCLA in the second round. On the other hand, No. 4-seed South Carolina made it to the Sweet 16, but it was dominated by top-seeded Baylor in Greensboro.
