University of Maryland athletic director Andy Geiger said yesterday that the university is prepared to be a host team in the opening round game in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I tournament if the Terps are awarded a game tomorrow.
The selection committee will meet tomorrow afternoon and pick 12 teams. Maryland is ranked No. 7 in the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, and there is a good chance the Terps (8-4) could be host to Towson State (8-3) in an opening-round game Wednesday.
There is speculation that the Terps might not be awarded a home game because Byrd Stadium is under renovation and Maryland officials did not charge admission for home games played on the soccer team's Denton Field.
