No. 7 Maryland men’s basketball improved to 2-0 with a win over Rhode Island Saturday night. Then-No. 4 ranked Maryland women’s basketball suffered its first loss of the season to then-No. 8 South Carolina, and the Terps moved down four spots to No. 8 in the updated AP Poll.

Maryland football suffered its worst loss of the season at Ohio State and now head into a bye week, while the Maryland field hockey and men’s soccer enter the postseason.
