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 since we last took a look at their projected seeding. The suffered an embarrassing loss on the road to Ohio State and defeated Penn State last night at the XFINITY Center behind strong performances from Dez Wells and Jon Graham. Most projections have only been updated since the Ohio State loss, so Maryland could trend upward a bit if they can handle Iowa on Sunday. But for now, here is where the Terps currently stand in some of the most popular bracket projections.
