After its upset win against Wisconsin and victory over Michigan, Maryland moved up to No. 10 in this week’s Associated Press poll, the Terrapins first top 10 appearance in the poll since the 2002-03 season. This is Maryland's highest ranking of the season and is the highest they've been ranked this late in a season since they won the National Title in 2002. With just two regular season games remaining for the Terps, both on the road and against teams in the bottom half of the conference, they will have the opportunity to finish in the top 10 of the AP poll for the first time in 13 years.

Around the Big Ten, Wisconsin fell to No. 6, dropping one spot after its defeat against the Terps last Tuesday. The Badgers also defeated Michigan State at home Sunday afternoon. Ohio State once again climbed into the Top 25, checking in at No. 23 following their late come from behind victory against Purdue Sunday evening.

Virginia, the only team to defeat the Terrapins at the Xfinity Center this season, remained at the No. 2 spot this week. The Cavilers have continued to win despite losing one of their best players, Justin Anderson, to a hand injury.

Iowa State, who Maryland defeated in late November, dropped from No. 12 to No. 17 after suffering two losses last week.
