After the inaugural week of the 2019-20 college basketball season, Maryland women’s basketball dropped to No. 8 in the latest AP Poll.

The Terps started at No. 4 in the preseason poll, but moved down four sports after suffering their first loss of the season.

Maryland blew the doors off of Wagner in a 119-56 victory before falling to then-No. 8 South Carolina 63-54 this past Sunday.

The Gamecocks rose to the No. 6 spot in this week’s poll, with Oregon State, UConn and Texas A&M each leapfrogging the Terps in the rankings as well.

Maryland’s road continues with a road matchup with James Madison this Wednesday at 7 p.m., before returning to the Xfinity Center for three straight games against Delaware, George Washington and Quinnipiac.
