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!

After New Year's, the ACC schedule gets underway. First up, Wake Forest, at Comcast on January 8th; then it's on the road at Cameron Indoor Stadium to face the Blue Devils on January 12th. The 'Heels come to town on the 25th of January. And Duke arrives on February 22nd! But between those two big in-conference games, Maryland hosts the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in the rematch of the Big Reds on February 15th in a nationally televised game. Of course, the ACC tournament concludes conference play. As always, it will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum; the dates are March 5-8. Road trip? Definitely!
