Men's college basketball
Confirming an earlier report, a source familiar with the 2017-18 Maryland men's basketball schedule said Tuesday that the Terps will face St.Bonaventure in the Emerald Coast Classic, scheduled for Niceville, Fla. on Nov. 24-25. The winner will play the winner of the Texas Christian-New Mexico matchup in the championship game. The Bonnies, who despite a 20-12 record last season weren't invited to either the NCAA tournament or National Invitation Tournament because of an 0-9 record against top 100 teams, will be led again by guard Jaylen Adams (Mount Saint Joseph). As a junior, Adams led St. Bonaventure with 20.6 points, 6.5 assists and 2.1 steals a game. The news of the Maryland-St. Bonaventure matchup was first reported by FanRagSports.com.
