GREENBELT, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- College basketball brings excitement to University of Maryland fans and a stylish hotel near UMD joins in the thrills as the seasons gets underway with nearly 40 home games scheduled at the nearby Comcast Center for both men's and women's events.

While the pre-season schedule held only a lone conflict for the men's basketball team, the ensuing November 2 victory over Indiana University (PA) inspired momentum for the University of Maryland Terrapins as they ramp-up to open regular season play against a hefty slate of teams including Atlantic Coast Conference top-ranked North Carolina State, Duke, North Carolina and Florida State. Coming off a 31-5 season that took them to the NCAA Elite Eight, their women counterparts have again been ranked in the Associated Press pre-season poll and are geared up for a fast paced season as well, all to the delight of Terrapin fans, including Greenbelt Marriott, an upscale University of Maryland hotel.

Conveniently located just minutes from Comcast Center, just off the Capital Beltway, Terps fans who book their basketball nights at Greenbelt Marriott will find themselves set with everything they need for following their teams, whether coming in for a week night game or making it a weekend escape filled with basketball fury and any of the many other things to do from this sophisticated hotel near White Oak, MD. Nearby attractions include the NASA Goddard Flight Center and Greenbelt National Park, and with its convenient location on the Capital Beltway, all the sights and sounds of Washington, DC and the surrounding area are easily accessible.
