The top nine spots in the AP and the six spots in the Coaches Poll remained unchanged from last week, as none of those teams lost. The Terrapins (11-1) kept their spot in each poll after beating up on Marshall, 87-67, on Sunday.
Big Ten foe Michigan State kept the No. 1 spot in both polls for the fourth week in a row after surviving overtime against Oakland. However, the Spartans will be in danger of losing their top spot now that National Player of the Year candidate Denzel Valentine is out for a few weeks with a knee injury. Purdue is once again the only other Big Ten team in the polls. The Boilermakers kept their No. 14 spot in the AP and dropped one spot to No. 14 in the Coaches Poll despite beating Vanderbilt on Tuesday.
Maryland actually dropped one spot to No. 15 in KenPom's rankings, but will soon have a chance to move up (or down) , once conference play starts and the Terps face more quality opponents.
The Terps will begin Big Ten play against Penn State on Wednesday at Xfinity Center before traveling to face Northwestern on Saturday.
