Terps still ranked in top 10 despite loss at Minnesota

February 22, 2016 | WNST Staff

After suffering its worst loss of the season, Maryland appeared to be in danger of falling out of the top 10 for the first time all year.

Instead, the Terps hung on at 10th overall in the latest AP top 25 rankings released on Monday afternoon. Mark Turgeon’s team was No. 6 last week before Thursday’s shocking loss at Minnesota, who hadn’t won a conference game all season.

Maryland fell from fifth to No. 9 in the USA Today coaches’ poll.

Michigan State climbed to No. 6 in this week’s AP rankings while Iowa fell to eighth after a road loss to Penn State.

The Terps (23-5) return to action Saturday afternoon when they play at Purdue.
