13 of Maryland’s 20 opponents made the 2022 NCAA Tournament to set up a strong schedule heading into the first season under head coach Kevin Willard. Meanwhile, Maryland has reportedly finalized several non-conference matchups for the 2022-23 season including a post-Thanksgiving matchup against Coppin State and head coach Juan Dixon. Maryland has already kicked off summer practices and announced recent signings of guard Jahari Long, who follows Willard from Seton Hall to Maryland, along with former St. Francis (BKN) forward Patrick Emilien who will enroll later this month.
Meanwhile, Maryland women’s basketball announced home games against both UConn and South Carolina, the 2022 defending national champions, and will face four teams who made the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
