For only the second time in the past six weeks, the Maryland men’s basketball team didn’t move down in the Associated Press Top 25 poll.
The Terps, who recovered from a down-to-the-wire 56-54 loss at Wisconsin on Tuesday with a nearly down-to-the-wire 57-50 win over Purdue on Saturday at Xfinity Center, remain at No. 17 in Monday’s poll.
Maryland (14-4, 4-3 Big Ten) plays at Northwestern (6-11, 1-6) on Tuesday in Evanston, Illinois.
The Terps are the second highest of the five Big Ten teams ranked this week, behind only No. 11 Michigan State (14-4, 6-1).
Iowa (13-5, 4-3), which had been ranked earlier in the season, moved back into the Top 25 at No. 19, followed by Illinois (13-5, 5-2) at No. 21 and Rutgers (14-4, 5-2) at No. 24.
