UConn to play Maryland in Maggie Dixon Classic

UConn finalized its non-conference schedule with a showdown against Maryland in the Maggie Dixon Classic on Dec. 28 at Madison Square Garden.

UConn had previously announced the other 10 non-conference games on the schedule and with the addition of Maryland the Huskies will play the other three 2015 Final Four teams and nine teams which played in the 2015 NCAA tournament.

The game will be played at 8:30 p.m. and will air on ESPN2.

It also marks the first of three games between the national powers as UConn will play at Maryland during the 2016-17 season with Maryland playing at UConn in the 2017-18 season.

It will be a rematch of the 2015 national semifinal won by UConn and there is another interesting story angle as one of Maryland's freshmen is Meriden's Kiah Gillespie, a former Capital Prep star while Maryland native De'Janae Boykin is one of UConn's three freshmen.
