In a move that was expected and probably long overdue, the struggling Maryland men's basketball team dropped out of the top 10 for the first time this season.
The Terps, who came into the season at No. 3 and were up to No. 2 as recently as three weeks ago, fell four spots to No. 14 in the Associated Pres media Top 25 and two spots in the USA Today Sports Top 25 after Saturday's loss at then-No. 20 Purdue.
Maryland (23-6, 11-5 Big Ten Conference) has lost three of its last four going into Thursday's Senior Night game against Illinois (13-16, 5-11) at Xfinity Center.
