Disclaimer - As was mentioned previously, there is a lot of basketball to be played. A lot will happen between now and Selection Sunday. The NCAA Tournament Field that is announced on March 15th is going to be a lot different than what people are projecting now. But that doesn't mean looking at projections is a worthless exercise. With that in mind, let's take a look at where people think the Terps currently stand.
Maryland went 1-1 last week, getting blown out on the road against Indiana and narrowly escaping with a last-minute, come-from-behind win at home against Northwestern. As a result, Maryland is no longer projecting as high as a 1-seed, but they are still holding their ground in the 3 to 4 seed range, despite the Indiana loss. Maryland's highest projection this week is a 2-seed while their lowest is a 5-seed. Here's a roundup of this week's bracket projections:
