The Terps move up in one poll and hold steady in another.

Maryland is No. 6 in this week's AP Top 25 and No. 7 in this week's men's basketball Coaches Poll, out on Monday. The Terps moved up from No. 9 in the Coaches Poll and stayed in the same spot in the AP Poll.

The Big Ten's Michigan State retains the No. 1 spot for a second consecutive week.

The Terps are back ahead of North Carolina, which lost at Texas last weekend, pushing the Tar Heels down in the rankings and behind Maryland for a second time.

The Big Ten still has just three ranked teams, with Purdue joining the Spartans and Terrapins in the top 10 an No. 8. A couple of anticipated Big Ten contenders have fallen on hard times: Wisconsin is 6-5 and looks in shambles after losses to Milwaukee and Marquette and Michigan. Michigan is 7-3 and still hasn't beaten a good team, and 8-3 Indiana's best win is still against a Creighton team that would later lose to Loyola Chicago.

Connecticut, which Maryland beat on Tuesday night, is up to No. 25 in the AP Poll.
