The Maryland women’s basketball team learned its conference opponents for next season Thursday, when the Big Ten released its 18-game schedule for the 2018-19 campaign.
The Terps finished last season as the second-best team in the conference, behind only Ohio State. They finished 12-4 in Big Ten play and lost to the Buckeyes in the Big Ten championship March 4.
Maryland will see the Buckeyes twice during the coming campaign. Their other home and away matchups are against Illinois, Nebraska, Penn State and Rutgers—teams the Terps went 7-0 against last year.
Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern and Wisconsin make up the rest of the home schedule. Out of the four, the Terps lost to two—Michigan and Minnesota—away last season.
The Terps will travel to Indiana and Iowa as well as Michigan State and Purdue, two teams that defeated Maryland on its home floor last year.
Maryland will pursue its ninth straight NCAA tournament bid next season.
