[NCAA DIVISION I MEN] The NCAA Division I Men's Tournament begins Thursday, and defending champion Maryland enters the tournament unseeded for the first time since 2001.

The Terrapins, who lost in the first round of the ACC Tournament, open at home against Loyola (Md.). Their streak of seven straight seasons with a first-round bye was the longest in the country.

Expect a low-scoring game at Ludwig Field.

Two years ago, Maryland won penalty kicks over Loyola after they played to a scoreless tie.

Scoring has been a problem most of the year for the Terrapins, while Loyola will be without star leading scorer Jamie Darvill, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Both teams have outstanding goalies. Maryland'sZac MacMath earned All-ACC honors, while Loyola keeper Kyle Wittman has a scoreless streak of more than 509 minutes.
