As Maryland leaves the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Big Ten, the Terps will be looking at an entirely new set of competitors in each of their intercollegiate sports.

With the transition becoming official Tuesday, here's a glance at each of Maryland's athletic programs, with recaps of their final year in the ACC and a look forward to what they'll face in the Big Ten.


Record: 40-23 (15-14 ACC)

Finish: 2nd in Atlantic Division

Recap: Second-year coach John Szefc led the baseball team to its best postseason run in program history. The Terps made the ACC championship game and earned a spot in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1971. They were knocked out in the super regional, which is the furthest they have ever reached.

Outlook: The Terps will look to build off of this season's success and become one of the top teams in a weaker Big Ten. Indiana and Nebraska made this season's NCAA tournament, but both teams were knocked out in the regionals.

Men's basketball

Record: 17-15 (9-9 ACC)

Finish: 8th

Recap: Three victories at the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands were the only tournament wins for the Terps during coach Mark Turgeon's third season. The team lost to Florida State in the second round of its final ACC tournament and did not get selected for the NCAA tournament or the National Invitation Tournament.

Outlook: The Terps exit the ACC just as American Athletic Conference champions Louisville enter the league, but the Big Ten hardly gets easier for Turgeon's young bunch. The team hosts Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin next season.

Women's basketball

Record: 28-7 (12-4 ACC)

Finish: 3rd

Recap: After dropping their first game at the ACC tournament, the Terps rallied under coach Brenda Frese to make their second appearance in the Final Four, , where they lost to Notre Dame, 87-61. Senior forward Alyssa Thomas averaged 19 points and 10.9 rebounds per game while earning first-team All-America honors.

Outlook: The Terps are without Thomas next season, but making up for her loss will be an easier task in the Big Ten. The team will no longer have conference games against Notre Dame and Duke. Instead, its marquee matchups will be against foes like Penn State and Nebraska.

Women's cross country

Finish: 14th

Recap: Women's cross country finished second to last at the ACC championship meet, with senior Becky Yep leading the team with a time of 22 minutes, 16 seconds. Yep again paced the Terps at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships, where the team improved to 15th out of 29 teams.
