Maryland women’s basketball fell out of the top-10 in the latest AP Top 25 released Monday, dropping from No. 8 to No. 12.
The move marks the first time all season the Terps have found themselves outside the top-10.
After picking up two wins in a row against Penn State and Minnesota, Maryland then traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan to face the then-No. 11 Wolverines. The Terps had won all but one conference game up until their road trip to face Michigan as they fell to then-No. 8 Indiana on Jan. 2.
Against the Wolverines, Maryland put up fewer than 50 points for the first time since Dec. 3, 2012, when the team lost to UConn, 63-48 in Hartford, Connecticut. On Sunday, the Terps scored just 49 points in the 20-point loss including a second quarter in which they scored just three points.
With the loss, the Terps moved to 12-5 on the season and 4-2 in conference play. Maryland will look to bounce back this week when it travels to take on Ohio State on Jan. 20 and then welcomes Northwestern to the Xfinity Center on Jan. 23.

Dr. King continues to be such an influential person. His legacy should endure forever. It is our duty to continue to learn from his teachings and lessons and be better because of his SACRIFICE so that the world never forgets all he stood for and wanted for humanity. https://t.co/SPxMUikP1K— Coach Clemsen (@alextclemsen) January 17, 2022
