Maryland volleyball has released its 2019 schedule, paving the road for a potential NCAA Tournament bid in the program’s second year under Adam Hughes.
The Terps will begin play on Aug. 31 against Austin Peay and Kansas State in the Wolfpack Invitational, which will be played in Raleigh, North Carolina. The four-team tournament is hosted by North Carolina State, but the two teams will not face one another.
After a home matchup against Howard, the Terrapins will head to San Antonio, Texas, for the UTSA Classic. That will be followed up by the Maryland Invite, in which the Terps will host Arkansas, George Mason and Princeton on Sept. 13 and 14. Following the Gamecock Invitational in South Carolina, the Big Ten conference slate will kick off against Ohio State on Sept. 25.
Overall, Maryland will face 12 teams that made the 2018 NCAA Tournament, including two Final Four teams in Wisconsin and Penn State. Last season, following an 18-14 record and a 9-11 mark within the conference, the Terrapins were listed among the “First Four Out,” just barely missing out on the dance.
