Syracuse Women's Basketball: Orange to Face Maryland in Big Ten/ACC Challenge

The SU women get a tough test in this year's Challenge...

James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

We already knew the Syracuse men's basketball opponent (the Wisconsin Badgers) in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Today, the women's matchups were announced, and the Orange women will be facing off with the Maryland Terrapins.

Like the men's game vs. the Badgers, the SU women's game will also take place on December 2. The Orange will visit the Terrapins at College Park, Md.'s XFINITY Center. Syracuse has never beaten Maryland in four all-time meetings, but are 1-1 in their two previous Big Ten/ACC Challenge matchups.

As we know, 2014-15 was a banner year for the Syracuse women, who went 22-10 (11-5) and recorded a first-round NCAA Tournament victory before losing to top-seeded South Carolina in the second. Maryland, on the other hand, is coming off its second straight Final Four appearance, and has not lost a home game since January 27, 2014. Needless to say, it will be a tough test for the Orange women. But one the now-thriving program should be up for as they continue to grow into national relevance.
