Rankings Update: Week of 4/24/17

Coming off a weekend sweep of Penn State, the Maryland Terrapins (28-11, 12-3 Big Ten) defeated William & Mary on Wednesday for the second time this season, and then came back home for another sweep; this time beating Michigan State.

The Terps have now won seven consecutive game and have catapulted themselves back into the rankings in most major polls. Maryland is also now first in the Big Ten and boasts an impressive 18-1 record at home this season.

Maryland will have to do a lot of traveling this week as they try to continue their recent success. They will travel to Harrisonburg, Virginia to take on James Madison on Tuesday, and then head out Bloomington, Indiana to take on the Indiana Hoosiers for a three-game set.

James Madison (18-21, 3-12 Colonial) also faced William & Mary last week, but fared considerably worse than Maryland. The Dukes got swept, extending their losing streak to seven games coming into the game against Maryland.

Indiana (21-16-2, 8-6-1 Big Ten) is coming off a big weekend where they took two of three in Ann Arbor from a ranked Michigan team. The Hoosiers fell to Butler earlier in the week though, so they came out with an even 2-2 record.
