This post has been updated with start time and broadcast information.

The Maryland men’s basketball team will play two conference games in December before embarking on a road-heavy slate in January, as revealed in conference schedules released by the Big Ten on Aug. 21.

Maryland will host Penn State on Dec. 1 then visit Purdue on Dec. 6 to open a 20-game conference schedule. Big Ten teams had previously played 18 conference matchups through the season.

Toward the end of January, Maryland will begin a nine-game stretch that features seven games away from College Park, including one against Illinois at Madison Square Garden. That game will be part of the Big Ten’s “Super Saturday: College Hoops & Hockey” doubleheader on Jan. 26.

The Terrapins will face 2018 NCAA tournament runner-up Michigan in Ann Arbor on Feb. 16 and at home on March 3. After the second game against the Wolverines, Maryland will conclude its conference schedule with a home game against Minnesota.

The conference tournament will return to Chicago from March 13 through 17 after being held the past two years in Washington and New York, respectively.

Last year, Maryland finished eighth in the 14-team Big Ten with an 8-10 conference record and lost to Wisconsin when it began the conference tournament last year in the second round.

Maryland’s nonconference schedule has already been released and includes games against five 2018 NCAA tournament participants — Loyola Chicago, Marshall, Radford, Seton Hall and Virginia.
