Maryland Basketball Climbs To No. 3 In AP Top 25 Rankings

December 2, 2019
After a 3-0 run to win the Orlando Invitational, the Maryland men's basketball team climbs to No. 3 in this week's AP Top 25 rankings, released Dec. 2.

Louisville (7-0) takes over the top spot in the poll, followed by Kansas (6-1). After losing to Stephen F. Austin, Duke fell from No. 1 to No. 10, and Michigan State's loss to Virginia Tech dropped the Spartans from No. 3 to No. 11. Three Big Ten teams rank in the top six, with Michigan coming in at No. 4 and Ohio State at No. 6.

The Terps won the Orlando Invitation to improve to 8-0 for the first time in 13 seasons. Maryland overcame poor starts to hold off Temple and Harvard Nov. 28 and 29, then dominated Marquette in the title game Dec. 1.

Senior point guard Anthony Cowan Jr. earned tournament MVP honors after scoring 72 points in Maryland's three games.

In the tournament championship, the Terps put on a dominant performance en route to an 84-63 win Dec. 1.

Up next, the Terps host Notre Dame at Xfinity Center Dec. 4 before opening Big Ten play at home against Illinois Dec. 7.
