The No. 7 Terps kick off their 2019-20 season at home against the Crusaders.
Smith returned to the Terps this season hungry to avenge last year's NCAA tournament defeat.
Aaron Wiggins and the freshman stood out, free-throw shooting did not.
“We want to be a little bit more complicated on defense."
"We’re trying to go onto bigger things, take the next step.”
This is the highest the Terps have been ranked since the 2015-16 season.
Coach Mark Turgeon secured his fourth recruit of his 2019 recruiting class.
