Maryland men’s basketball team jumps to No. 7 in AP poll

After winning its eighth straight game in conference play, a program high since joining the Big Ten, the Maryland men’s basketball team has risen again in the Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Terps jumped two spots to No. 7 in the latest poll, announced Monday. Maryland was slotted at No. 7 in the AP Top 25 preseason poll, and has experienced its share of rises and falls before returning to this spot this week.


Maryland (21-4, 11-3 Big Ten) went 2-0 last week, defeating Nebraska at home on Tuesday night, then going on the road to beat Michigan State on Saturday night for the first time since the 2016-17 season.

Penn State (20-5, 10-4) is No. 9, Iowa (18-8, 9-6) is No. 20 and Ohio State (17-8, 7-7) is No. 25. Maryland will travel to Columbus to face the Buckeyes on Sunday.
