The Maryland Terrapins moved up to No. 16 in the latest Associated Press poll, their first climb in the polls in almost a month. After picking up two wins last week, at home against Indiana and on the road against Penn State, the Terps won two consecutive games for the first time since mid-January, giving voters a reason to advance the Terps upward.
Across the Big Ten, Wisconsin remained at No. 5 after defeating Nebraska and Illinois this week. Ohio State, which had climbed back into the Top 25 at No. 23, fell to No. 24 this week after dropping a last-second game to Michigan State.
Virginia, who is trying to adjust to life without the recently injured Justin Anderson, checked in at No. 2 this week, after narrowly defeating Wake Forest at home and pulling out a four-point win on the road against N.C. State. Iowa State clocks in at No. 14, with Oklahoma State at No. 22.
