College basketball rankings, week 10: Maryland stays at No. 3 in AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll

The Terps didn't move after going 2-0 last week.

Maryland men's basketball kept its No. 3 spot in the Associated Press Poll and the Coaches Poll this week, both released on Monday.

No. 1 Kansas and No. 2 Oklahoma kept their spots in the AP switched and atop the Coaches Poll after the Jayhawks downed the Sooners in a triple-overtime thriller last Monday.

Most voters understandably choose not to move Oklahoma down more than one spot after losing such a close game, so Maryland stayed at No. 3.

Michigan State moved up one spot to No. 4 in both polls after beating Illinois and Penn State, while Virginia dropped nine spots to No. 13 in the AP and is No. 11 in the Coaches Poll after losing to Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech last week. The Spartans recently got Denzel Valentine back, and will host the Terrapins on Jan. 23.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Iowa moved up to No. 16 in the AP and No. 19 in the Coaches Poll after beating Nebraska on Tuesday. Purdue dropped to No. 24 in each poll after beating Michigan on Thursday and losing to Illinois on Sunday, and Indiana re-entered the Coaches Poll at No. 25.

Maryland is up to No. 14 in KenPom's latest rankings, the highest the Terrapins have been rated this season. The Terps take on Michigan on Tuesday in Ann Arbor.

Take a look at both polls below.
