We found out not too long ago that the Terrapins would play another game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY during the 2013-2014 season but the opponent had been previously unknown.
Well, according to a report by the Washington Post’s Alex Prewitt, it appears we now know who that opponent will be. The Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball team will open up next season at the home of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets against the UCONN Huskies on November 8th.
The Huskies, a member of the soon-to-be named former Big East, were ineligible to participate in any postseason tournament this season due to their low Academic Progress Rate from the previous year was too low. UCONN, coached by for NBA player Kevin Ollie, should present the Terrapins with a very strong test to start off the season as they, without any roster attrition due to early entries to the NBA Draft, essentially return the entire roster of a team that finished 2012-2013 with a 20-10 record.
By scheduling this game with the Huskies the University of Maryland will now compete against the University of Connecticut in men’s athletics twice over a seven week span. The Terrapins football team will travel to Connecticut on September 14th to return the game played at Byrd Stadium last season.
