Despite not playing its final regular-season game against Indiana due to the lack of healthy active players available unrelated to COVID-19, Maryland men’s soccer earned the No. 4 seed in this season's Big Ten Tournament.

The Terps will host the No. 5 seeded Rutgers Scarlet Knights for their first-round matchup on Saturday, April 10. The winner face either No. 1 seed Indiana or No. 8 seed Northwestern.

Maryland and Rutgers were supposed to meet twice this season, but Rutgers wasn’t able to travel to College Park on March 23 for the second fixture.

In the only meeting this season, Maryland lost 2-0 in what was a rocky start to the season for head coach Sasho Cirvoski’s squad. In the five games since that loss, the Terps have won four matchups and tied one in a 2-2 draw against Penn State last Wednesday.

Senior forward Paul Bin leads the team with eight total points and three goals while freshman midfielder Ben Bender has been a pleasant surprise scoring two goals in the last two games.
