A year after being a better road team than it was at home, Maryland will open its men's basketball season Nov. 10 against Stony Brook at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., coach Mark Turgeon announced Monday.
The Terps, who will be looking for their fourth straight NCAA tournament appearance in Turgeon's seventh season at Maryland, will have their home opener at Xfinity Center two days later against Maryland-Eastern Shore.
The first month of the 2017-2018 season is full of games, with the Terps spending a good deal of time away from College Park. The Stony Brook game is one of four Maryland will play on the road or in neutral settings.
Along with the trip to Long Island, the Terps will also go to Destin, Fla., for the Emerald Coast Classic Nov. 24 and 25, before heading to Syracuse to play the Orange at the Carrier Dome Nov. 27 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
The Terps, who have won four straight holiday tournaments over the past four years, will play St. Bonaventure in the opening round of the Emerald Coast Classic and either Texas Christian or New Mexico the next night.
