Maryland basketball remains at No. 24 in AP Poll for 3rd straight week

The Terps’ win over Purdue and loss at Michigan effectively canceled each other out for rankings purposes.

After knocking off Purdue at home and falling short at Michigan on the road last week, Maryland basketball remained at No. 24 in the Associated Press rankings released Monday.

The Terps received 211 points, up from 196 the week prior and 144 the week before that. Maryland beat Nebraska on Feb. 6 before last week’s two results. The Terps have now been ranked six straight weeks and eight times this season, although they’ve now been ranked 24th four times total.

Michigan remains the highest-ranked team in the conference despite losing at Penn State last week. The Wolverines are No. 7, while Michigan State checks in at No. 10. Purdue slipped from No. 12 to No. 15 after losing in College Park, and Wisconsin dropped two spots to No. 22 after falling to Michigan State. Iowa was seconds away from falling at Rutgers on Saturday, but a game-winning heave has the Hawkeyes still at No. 21.

The Terps’ next test comes at Iowa on Tuesday, which means another game against a ranked team on the road; Maryland hasn’t won such a game in 11 seasons. The team returns home Saturday afternoon for a battle with Ohio State.
