The Eagles dropped their season opener at Penn State on Nov. 25 and had been scheduled to visit the No. 14 Terps on Saturday in first year head coach Laura Harper’s return to College Park where she was the 2006 NCAA Final Four’s Most Outstanding Player during the Terps’ run to their first and only national championship.
