Maryland will face three in 2015 preseason AP Top 25


Maryland will face three in 2015 preseason AP Top 25

Head coach Randy Edsall and the Maryland Terrapins will, over the course of the 2015 season, face three teams ranked in the Associated Press Preseason Top 25 poll, released on Sunday.

Those opponents? No. 1 Ohio State, No. 5 Michigan State, and No. 20 Wisconsin.

The Terrapins head to Columbus on Oct. 10. They head to East Lansing against the Spartans on Nov. 14 and they host the Badgers on Nov. 7.

West Virginia, Maryland's Week 4 opponent on the road, received one vote in the poll.


Things, of course, did not go well for Maryland against those three ranked opponents in 2014, something of a harsh introduction to the Big Ten:

vs. Ohio State (L 52-14)

at Wisconsin (L 52-7)

vs. Michigan State (L 37-15)

In all, those are three defeats by an average of nearly 32 points per game.

And things likely won't get easier in 2015. Ohio State is the first unanimous preseason No. 1 team in the poll's history, which dates back to 1950. Michigan State holds steady right where it finished 2014. Though Wisconsin has slipped a few spots, they remain in the Top 20. 

Maryland opens its season Sept. 5 vs. Richmond.

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Maryland's Kevin Huerter surprises at 2018 NBA Combine

Going into the 2018 NBA Combine, Kevin Huerter was not receiving much hype, was off many NBA Draft boards, and many assumed he was heading back to college anyways.

Playing in the first scrimmage of the combine process, all those storylines quickly changed.

Playing against players like Jacob Evans, Donte DiVincenzo, Udoka Azubuike, and Jevon Carter, Huerter emerged as one of the top stars. The two-year Maryland spot-up shooter saw 25 minutes of action and only trailed Penn State prospect Tony Carr in points on his squad.

With 14 points (5-11 FG, 3-8 three-pointers), Huerter showed development since he was last seen with the Terps. His passing was the biggest asset for his team and was not afraid to take a shot against these top defenders.  The 6-7 forward also added three rebounds, an assist, and had only one turnover.

Although his shooting in-game was not fantastic, in the individual drills he showed off.  Of the seven shooting marks, he ranked in the top five in five of them.  He also had the best shuttle run (2.96 seconds).

No question, Huerter’s draft stock significantly rose. Although still early, he is looking to be the highest rated Terp prospect this year over Justin Jackson and Bruno Fernando.

Consensus among those at the NBA Combine seems to believe that Huerter will return for his junior season at Maryland.

After today though, it may be hard to say no.

Panthers' first-round pick D.J. Moore visits Maryland with his new puppy


Panthers' first-round pick D.J. Moore visits Maryland with his new puppy

D.J. Moore has an adorable new puppy!

Days after the Carolina Panthers selected Moore as the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the former Maryland wide receiver returned to his roots and paid a visit to College Park.

But the first-rounder wasn’t alone when he went to Maryland. According to the Terps’ football Twitter account, he brought his new puppy with him. Seriously, look at this puppy!


The Big Ten Receiver of the Year in 2017, Moore was obviously a crucial component of the Terps’ offense. He finished the season with 80 catches — a Maryland single-season record, which was also a Big Ten high.

He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season with Maryland.
