The Maryland Terrapins’ March Madness dance starts on Thursday in Orlando, Fla.
Maryland was awarded a No. 6 seed in the West Region on Sunday during CBS’ Selection Show special. The Terrapins (24-8) lost to Northwestern in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals, but they’ll have plenty of rest before the NCAA Tournament.
Maryland faces 11th-seeded Xavier in the first round.
… AND last but certainly not least!

If the Terrapins are able to win their first-round game vs. the Musketeers they will play either No. 3 Florida State or No. 14 Florida Gulf Coast.
The Terrapins reached the Sweet 16 last year, one season after making the Round of 32 under coach Mark Turgeon.
