Inclement weather again postponed the Big Ten game between the Michigan State and Maryland women, rescheduled for Monday in College Park, Md., after getting wiped out Saturday. A new date hasn’t been announced.
The showdown pits a pair of Top 25 programs, with Michigan State (14-4, 5-2 Big Ten) moving up three spots to No. 18 in Monday’s new AP poll, and Maryland (17-2, 6-1) holding steady at No. 5.
The Spartans moved up three spots after winning their only game last week, 59-48 victory at home against Rutgers. Michigan State has won 10 of its last 12.

... Junior guard Carlin Dupree has rejoined the North Dakota State basketball team, two weeks after leaving because he was unhappy with his role.
Dupree said in a statement issued by the school Monday that he made “a selfish decision” and hopes he’ll be forgiven.
David Richman says Dupree is a member of the Bison family and will be supported. But he also says Dupree is returning with “some adjusted expectations,” and it hasn’t been decided whether he’ll play again this season.
Before leaving, Dupree had played in 17 games and was averaging seven points, three rebounds and two assists. The Milwaukee native is best known for coming off the bench and scoring four straight points in overtime to spark an 80-75 win over Oklahoma in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.
