The Mary­land men’s bas­ket­ball team plans to host Ge­orge Ma­son in De­cem­ber as part of its 2020 non­con­fer­ence sched­ule, ac­cord­ing to a source fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion.

The Terps have yet to re­lease their sched­ule as the NCAA and its con­fer­ences sort out and fi­nal­ize sched­ules to play amid the coro­n­avirus pan­demic.

The NCAA in Septem­ber an­nounced that the Di­vi­sion I men’s col­lege bas­ket­ball sea­son will be­gin Wed­nes­day, Nov. 25, with the max­i­mum num­ber of games teams can play this sea­son re­duced by four.

For men’s bas­ket­ball, teams are able to com­pete in ei­ther 25 reg­u­lar- sea­son games if that does not in­clude a mul­ti­ple-team event, 25 reg­u­lar- sea­son games and one mul­ti­ple-team event that in­cludes up to two games or 24 reg­u­lar-sea­son games and one mul­ti­ple-team event that in­cludes up to three games.

Ac­cord­ing to a CBS Sports re­port, the ACC/Big Ten Chal­lenge, which Mary­land has par­tic­i­pated in since join­ing the Big Ten in 2014, is ex­pected to be played on school cam­puses with a tar­get date of Dec. 8 and 9.

Oct. 14 marked the first day that men’s and women’s teams can of­fi­cially start hold­ing team prac­tices of up to 20 hours per week and up to four hours per day lead­ing up to Nov. 25.

CBS Sports first re­ported the news of Mary­land plan­ning to play Ge­orge Ma­son.
