This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

The Maryland basketball team split a pair of road games with Northwestern and Wisconsin last week, and the Terps ultimately stayed in the same spot in bracketology predictions as a result.

Maryland is a 6-seed according to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi and CBS’s Jerry Palm. Those brackets have the Terps heading to Greenville, S.C. and starting off with Middle Tennessee and Arkansas, respectively. Both projections have them slated to potentially play Duke in the second round.

The Terps are 22-5 and ranked No. 24 in the latest AP Poll. They have four regular-season games remaining, three of which are at home. Next up is a Wednesday bout with Minnesota, whom they downed on the road in January.
