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 Nov. 24-25 in Niceville, Fla.
The winner will play the winner of the Texas Christian-New Mexico matchup in the championship game Nov. 25. Friday's losers will meet in a consolation game Saturday.
The Bonnies, who despite a 20-12 record last season weren't invited to 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 per game. He withdrew his name from the NBA draft last week after not signing with an agent.
