Maryland to face Michigan

On Wednesday, December 3 Michigan will face Maryland at Comcast Center giving Maryland two consecutive home dates in this Challenge. It is the first meeting between these two teams in the challenge. John Beilein's first season in Ann Arbor was a disaster as the Wolverines staggered to a 10-22 record and only 5-13 in the Big Ten. With no impact players arriving in the fall it is probably going to be another long season for Michigan.

It is nice to have another opponent outside of Illinois and Wisconsin. Maryland will probably be able to use some easier opponents as Gus Gilchrist won't be available till the end of December.

Maryland will also host Charlotte in a return game this season and play in the Old Spice Classic along with Tennessee, Michigan State, Gonzaga, and Oklahoma State.

The game will probably be broadcast on either ESPN2 or ESPNU, though times and channels are subject to the whims of the fascists in Bristol.
