Maryland basketball was on the cusp of returning to the top 25 of the Associated Press Poll last week, but Sunday’s loss to Nebraska set the Terps back.
Last week they received 27 votes, the most of any team outside the top 25. This week they only received seven after a late collapse against the Cornhuskers prevented them from starting 2-0 in Big Ten play.
Minnesota, Clemson and Miami are all ahead of Maryland in the “receiving votes” category this week.
Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Wisconsin moved up one spot to No. 13 after beating Rutgers. Purdue moved down five spots to No. 20 after losing to Minnesota, while Indiana moved from No. 16 to tied for No. 25 after losing to Nebraska and Lousiville. Indiana and Purdue play Tuesday at 7 p.m.
The Terps are 13-2, and have a few days off before their first Big Ten road game at Michigan on Saturday.
