After a strong start to the season and Big Ten play, the Maryland Terrapins (33-17, 15-9 Big Ten) have struggled of late, losing their last three weekend series. Over the weekend, they dropped two out of three to Northwestern at home – just their second and third losses in College Park this season. They currently sit fourth in the Big Ten, but with their regular season conference schedule over, their final position in the Big Ten standings will be decided by the rest of the conference next weekend while the Terps scoreboard watch from High Point, North Carolina.
Maryland entered the week ranked in just one national poll (Perfect Game, 25), but after a 2-2 week and with two home losses to Northwestern, the Terps have dropped out of all major rankings. They have also fallen to 36th in RPI, a drop of 12 spots since last week.
While the Terps can no longer influence their finish in the Big Ten standings, they will look to close out the regular season strong when they face off against High Point. The Panthers are not ranked in any national poll and sit 132th in RPI.
Big Ten: 4
Baseball America: Unranked
