Head coach Rob Vaughn promised that the Terps would host an NCAA regional game back in 2018. On Friday, his goal was fulfilled.
The Terps had 20 hits and were powered by an 11-strikeout performance by starting pitcher Ryan Ramsey.
This marks the first time in program history that the Terps will host a regional.
The Terps will now shift their attention to the NCAA tournament.
The Terps will play Indiana Saturday as they hope to recapture their regular season momentum.
The Terps surrendered an early lead, but erased a deficit in extra innings to advance with a win in the Big Ten tournament.
The Terps set a program record for single-season awards and have the most in the Big Ten.
The Terps won their 44th victory of the year off multiple-homer performances by Matt Shaw and Chris Alleyne.
Alleyne became the first Terp in program history to hit 20 homers and steal 20 bases in the same season.
"We do this for these kids. That’s why we have a job, and there are seniors that are losing games because people don’t want to hurt resumes."
