Maryland men’s and women’s basketball release nonconference schedules, won’t allow fans at games

With a week to go before the official start of the NCAA basketball season, the Maryland men’s and women’s teams revealed their nonconference schedules.

Maryland also announced that the season will begin without fans at Xfinity Center.


“This is done out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our student-athletes and fans,” the school wrote in a statement. “We are hopeful that we may be able [to] welcome some fans to Xfinity Center as the season progresses and health conditions permit.”

The Maryland men’s basketball team will open the 2020-21 season the day before Thanksgiving and host six of seven matchups, including a multi-team event, as part of its nonconference schedule.


The Terps will begin against Old Dominion on Nov. 25 at Xfinity Center. Maryland will then host Navy on Nov. 27 and Mount Saint Mary’s on Nov. 29 as part of a multi-team event between the three schools.

Maryland will play Monmouth on Dec. 1 and George Mason on Dec. 4 at home before traveling to South Carolina to play Clemson on Dec. 9 as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

The Terps round out the nonconference schedule by hosting La Salle on Dec. 22.

The Maryland women’s basketball team will host Towson on Dec. 3, welcome 2006 national champion Laura Harper and Coppin State to College Park on Dec. 5 and host Mount St. Mary’s on Dec. 8. The Terps will begin the season in Estero, Florida, for the Gulf Coast Showcase, facing Davidson (Nov. 27), Missouri State (Nov. 28) and Arkansas (Nov. 29).
