What to Watch

Friday

Softball vs. Alabama (12:30 p.m.)

Maryland went 2-3 in their season opening West Coast swing. They'll head south to my home state of Georgia for the Georgia State Tournament. After facing No. 6 Oregon out west, the Terrapins will open up against No. 5 Alabama in their tournament opener.

Softball vs. Georgia State (5:30 p.m.)

After their tilt with Alabama, Maryland has to quickly turn around and face host Georgia State.

Gymnastics at home vs. Arkansas (7:30 p.m.)

The GymTerps have not done particularly well in their last couple of meets. They've hurt themselves with mistakes and failed to execute when they had no margin for error. It doesn't get any easier with No. 11 Arkansas coming to town.

Baseball at Alabama (7:30 p.m.)

Baseball season is back! The Terps are looking to advance past the NCAA Super Regionals, where they have fallen the past two seasons, and make it to the College World Series. Their journey starts Friday in Tuscaloosa as preseason first-team All-American Mike Shawaryn takes the mound.

Saturday

Tennis at Harvard (noon)

Women's tennis has had an up and (mostly) down season. The Terrapins lost by a 6-1 margin to LSU last week. On Tuesday, they dropped a 4-2 match to Tulane. Maryland will head up north with a 1-4 record, and will look to turn their season around.

WLAX at home vs. Georgetown (noon)

After their 19-7 demolition of William and Mary in their season opener last week, top-ranked Maryland hosts the Hoyas. Taylor Cummings won Big Ten Player of the Week honors for her do-it-all performance against the Tribe.

MLAX at home vs. High Point (noon)

After their season opener against Navy was cancelled due to inclement weather, High Point became Maryland's first game of the season. Terrapin head coach John Tillman said that he will have face-off by committee this season. After falling in the national title game, it will be interesting to see what this team looks like in their first game action of the year.

Wrestling at home vs. Rider (3:00 p.m.)

It's senior day for Maryland wrestling. This is the final tune-up for the Terrapins before the Big Ten Championships. Rider is no pushover. The Broncos have wins against Bloomsburg, Kent State, Northwestern, Hofstra and Penn.

Softball vs. Miami (Ohio) (3:00 p.m.)

After their two games on Friday, Maryland softball will lace them up for two more on Saturday. Their first game will be against the Redhawks.

Baseball at Alabama (4:30 p.m.)

Terp fans might get a chance to see Taylor Bloom take the mound for Maryland in game two. He caught fire in the postseason and started throwing some filthy stuff with confidence against Michigan and UCLA. Has he improved over the course of the offseason? We're about to find out.

Softball vs. Mercer (5:30 p.m.)

Maryland takes on Mercer in their second game of the day and fourth of the tournament.

Sunday

Softball vs. Alabama (10:00 a.m.)

Maryland's fifth and final game of the tournament will be a rematch with top-10 Alabama.

Tennis at Boston U (11:00 a.m.)

After playing Harvard on Saturday, the Terrapins will be shipping up to Boston to take on the Terriers.

Men's Basketball vs. Michigan (1:00 p.m.)

The Terps will try to get some revenge at home against Michigan, the team that dealt them their first Big Ten loss of the season.

Baseball at Alabama (2:00 p.m.)

Maryland baseball will close out its first series of the year against the Crimson Tide.

Women's Basketball at Rutgers (3:00 p.m.)

Top-10 Maryland keeps rolling along in their quest to reach their third straight Final Four. Maryland heads to New Jersey for a date with the Scarlet Knights.
