Terps to face Hoyas among 4 ESPN foes

August 26, 1993

COLLEGE PARK -- Four nationally televised appearances on ESPN, including the season opener against Georgetown, will highlight the 1993-94 University of Maryland men's basketball schedule.

The schedule, which was released yesterday, also includes a nationally televised game on ESPN against Oklahoma Dec. 7 in Oklahoma City. The Terrapins will be on television 13 times in the regular season.

The Nov. 26 game against the Hoyas marks the revival of a rivalry that ended after the 1979-80 season. It will be played at the USAir Arena in Landover and will be part of a four-game ESPN package that day and night.

The Terps, who finished 12-16 last season, also will play in the University of Massachusetts Christmas tournament in Springfield, Mass., Dec. 28-29. The event could bring together former Dunbar teammates Keith Booth and Donta Bright if Maryland and UMass advance to the final.

Maryland also will play at the Baltimore Arena for the second straight year. The Terps, who beat Oklahoma there last season, will meet Towson State Dec. 23. After opening its Atlantic Coast Conference schedule Jan. 4 at Georgia Tech, Maryland will meet defending national champion North Carolina Jan. 8 at Cole Field House.
