At long last, the ACC has released its women's basketball schedule for 2008-09, which has allowed the Terps to release theirs. And while the upcoming season is still a long way off, at least now we can begin the countdown. Maryland opens its new season 73 days from today, on Friday, November 14th, on the road against the Horned Frogs of TCU. Ribbit! The first home game for the new-look Terps takes place two days later on Sunday, November 16, 2008, when the Delaware State Hornets visit Comcast Center at 2 PM. Mark your calendars!
Of course, everybody already knows about Thanksgiving in Cancun . . . sun, fun and basketball! Other games, though in less scenic locations, but still noteworthy: the Terps host UCLA (Nikki Blue's alma mater) on November 23rd. On December 4th, Maryland travels to West Lafayette, Indiana, to face last season's Big 10 tournament champion, the Purdue Boilermakers, in the 2nd Annual Big Ten-ACC challenge. This should be an exciting non-conference test. Then on the Sunday before Christmas (December 21st), the Terps meet the always tough Old Dominion Monarchs -- again on the road -- in Norfolk. Road trip? Very likely!
