dominating in their inaugural season of Big Ten play — and their road to
a consecutive Final Four heads right through Hoffman Estates, a suburb
about 30 miles northwest of Chicago along I-90.
All-session tickets from UMD's allotment are available here. Or, you can purchase individual-session tickets through the Sears Centre. The Lady Terps have clinched the No. 1 seed, so they won't play until Day Three — March 6 at 11:30 a.m. Central.

on Friday, March 13.
