For the first time since February of 2003, the Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball team is ranked in the Top 10 in the nation. They sit as the tenth ranked team according to the AP Poll, and are number nine in the USA Today/ESPN Poll. The Terps got their biggest win of the season last Tuesday night over Big Ten top dog Wisconsin, and capped off the week with a ten point win over the Michigan Wolverines. The Terps have now won five games in a row, and sit at 24-5 on the season. Maryland’s next game is at Rutgers on Tuesday night at 7 pm, before finishing the regular season on the road at Nebraska on Sunday evening. The team is currently sitting as the second seed in their first year in the Big Ten conference, and have surpassed everyone’s expectations, highlighted by an undefeated home record in conference play.

Maryland is looking to make some noise throughout March, and with the talent of freshman guard Melo Trimble, and the leadership and determination of senior Dez Wells, the Terps seem to have the capability to do just that.
