Maryland men's basketball is No. 17 in the final Coaches Poll of the season and No. 18 in the final AP Top 25. The Terps dropped two spots in the Coaches Poll and held steady in the AP Poll.
The Terps fell to Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament semifinals after beating Nebraska in the quarterfinals. Maryland is a No. 5 seed in the South Region of the NCAA Tournament, and will take on No. 12 seed South Dakota State in the first round on Friday.
The Spartans came in at No. 2 for the second week in a row but didn't get a No. 1 seed in the tournament, a reminder that the people who vote in the polls are entirely different from those who determine the makeup of the brackets.
For the Coaches Poll, elsewhere in the Big Ten, Michigan State is No. 2, Purdue is No 10, Indiana is No. 12 and Iowa is No 24, while Wisconsin drops out.
The Terps enter the tournament as No. 23 team in Ken Pomeroy's rankings, a spot higher than they were ranked at the beginning of the season.
