The Maryland men's basketball team will play Villanova in the first game of a Madison Square Garden doubleheader as part of the 2014 Jimmy V Classic on Dec. 9.
The Terps and Wildcats will meet at 7 p.m., following by Indiana and Louisville at 9 p.m.
The Terps have played neutral-site games in New York the past two seasons, opening at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against Kentucky in 2012 and Connecticut in 2013. They're not expected to open at Barclays this season, which had previously been a possibility.
Maryland has lost to Villanova in four of five previous meetings.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
