Maryland women’s basketball releases 2014-15 schedule


(Katherine Frey/The Washington Post)

The Maryland women’s basketball team released its full schedule Thursday for its inaugural season in the Big Ten, with the Terrapins set to host all five conference teams that earned NCAA tournament berths this past season.

Coming off a fifth appearance in the Final Four and second under Coach Brenda Frese, the Terrapins open their conference schedule by playing Ohio State at Xfinity Center on Dec. 29. Maryland beat the Buckeyes, 67-55, last season in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

The Terrapins will play home games against NCAA tournament participants Purdue, Michigan State, Iowa, Nebraska and Penn State. They also play road games against the Spartans, Cornhuskers and Nittany Lions and have home-and-away series with Rutgers and Indiana.

When the Terrapins visit Minnesota on Jan. 11, it will be somewhat of a homecoming for Frese, who turned around the Golden Gophers in 2002-03 and was named national coach of the year. Minnesota’s 11 conference wins that season were more than in the program’s previous six seasons combined, and its 22-8 record set the mark for the single-season victories in school history.

Maryland’s first Big Ten tournament appearance will take place at Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill. The tournament runs March 4-8.

Game times and broadcast information are to be determined unless otherwise noted.
