I liked Maryland in the preseason because the Terps had a quality coach (Mark Turgeon), a good and experienced guard (Anthony Cowan) and two future pros up front (Bruno Fernando and Jalen Smith). But a 78-74 loss to Seton Hall at home just before Christmas knocked Maryland out of the Top 25 And 1.

Now the Terps are back in, though.

Friday night’s 78-75 win over Indiana pushed Maryland to No. 17 in Saturday morning’s Top 25 And 1. That jump pushed Marquette, Buffalo, Houston, Ohio State, Kentucky, Villanova, St. John’s, Iowa State and Ole Miss down one spot each — no fault of their own. But don’t fret, Ole Miss fans. If your Rebels win at Mississippi State on Saturday, they’ll make a similar jump to the one Maryland just made.
