College basketball rankings, Week 6: Maryland isn’t ranked in AP Poll

New, 31 comments

No surprise.

NCAA Basketball: Jacksonville State at Maryland Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland basketball received just 27 votes in the latest AP Poll on Monday. That slots the Terps as the No. 28 team in the country behind Florida and Virginia Tech outside of the top 25.

Maryland received 31 votes a week ago, and slipped just a little after playing just one blowout game against Jacksonville State. The team has just one game this upcoming week as well against Charlotte on a less-than-neutral court in Baltimore on Tuesday.

For the Terps to crack the top 25 again, they’ll have to prove themselves against Big Ten talent when conference play begins. Mark Turgeon’s group is without a convincing win despite a 10-1 record. They’ll take on Illinois on Dec. 27 to open conference play.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Wisconsin ranks No. 14, Purdue No. 15 and Indiana No. 16. Minnesota received six votes and Northwestern four. After falling to Northeastern, Michigan State fell out of the rankings entirely.
