The University of Delaware begins the 2018-19 men’s basketball season with a major test at the University of Maryland, UD announced while releasing its nonconference schedule.
Delaware visits Maryland, now a member of the Big Ten, on Tuesday, Nov. 6. The Blue Hens last played the Terps in 2007, losing 76-46 in College Park. Delaware’s last win over Maryland in five all-time meetings was in 1911.
Delaware is playing Division II schools – Chestnut Hill College of Philadelphia on Nov. 13 and Wilmington University on Nov. 18 — in its first two home games. The two are Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference members.
That’ll make six non-Division I opponents in Martin Ingelsby’s three years as UD coach. Delaware played Division II Goldey-Beacom and Division III Bryn Athyn in 2016-17 and two Division III foes — Wesley College and North Carolina Wesleyan — last year. Before that, it had been nearly 20 years since Delaware faced a non-Division I foe.
Other home nonleague games are against UNC-Greensboro (Nov. 23), Louisiana Tech (Nov. 26), Navy (Dec. 5), St. Francis, Pa. (Dec. 9) and Delaware State (Dec. 19).
Additional road games are at St. Peter’s (Nov. 10), Cornell (Nov. 15), Maryland-Eastern Shore (Nov. 30), Columbia (Dec. 2) and Stony Brook (Dec. 16).
The Colonial Athletic Association schedule had been announced earlier this summer. The Blue Hens’ CAA opener is Dec. 28 at Hofstra.
Delaware will be looking for its first above-.500 season both overall and in the CAA since its 2014 league championship. The Blue Hens were 14-19 overall, 6-12 in the CAA last year.
Delaware has already begun selling season-ticket packages starting at $159.
The UD women will soon announce their nonconference slate, which starts in the Preseason WNIT at Northern Iowa Nov. 9.
