Tillman enters his seventh season at the helm of the Terrapins, leading Maryland to five NCAA Semfinal appearances and 80 victories (13.3/season). Maryland returns four USILA All-Americans, including SSDM Isaiah Davis-Allen, attackmen Colin Heacock and Matt Rambo, and defender Tim Muller.
The 2017 schedule features a challenging non-conference slate, with 6-of-8 opponents ranked among the top-20 in the final 2016 Cascade/Maverik Inside Lacrosse Media Poll. Additionally, the Terps’ non-conference opponents had a cumulative record of 89-33 (73%) in 2016.
“We’re very excited to announce a schedule which features some of the nation’s most preeminent programs across the college lacrosse landscape,” Tillman said. “We have and always will continue to play one of the toughest schedules in the country and our competitive non-conference schedule should prepare us well for Big Ten Conference action.”
The Terrapins’ home schedule includes dates with Yale, Villanova, Penn State, Michigan and High Point, before culminating on April 29 when Johns Hopkins returns to Maryland Stadium for “The Rivalry.”
Maryland will open the season with an immediate test on Sat., Feb. 11, as it travels to Annapolis to take on Navy, which advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals last season. The game will mark the 92nd in history between the foes, with the Terps holding a 57-33-1 advantage. The Terps will then travel to Philadelphia to face St. Joseph’s for just the second time in history.
The Terps open their home schedule Feb. 18 against High Point for the second straight season, before welcoming Ivy League champion Yale to Maryland Stadium the following weekend on Feb. 25.
Maryland will then hit the road again March 4 when it travels to South Bend, Ind., for a game against Notre Dame. The Terps are 5-4 all-time against the Irish.
Following a road game at Albany (March 11) and a home meeting with Villanova (March 18), Maryland will head to Chapel Hill for a rematch of the 2016 NCAA Championship overtime thriller as it faces North Carolina (March 25). The Terps are 42-25 all-time against the Tar Heels.
Big Ten Conference action is set to begin in April, as the defending conference champion Terps host Michigan and Penn State to open the slate, before traveling to Rutgers and Ohio State.
Maryland will close its regular season April 29 when it hosts Johns Hopkins for the 106th installment of “The Rivalry.” The Terps have won two straight games in the historic series.
