Major Guest List News.

  • The Almost Dimes. To be an official College Crosse Big Board Certified Dime ®, and get the bold treatment, a team must appear in the top 10 of all 5 polls on the Big Board. We have a consensus on 8 teams, and three almost Dimes (Duke, Albany, and Towson).

    Towson is the closest to Dime status, as the Tigers appear in the top 10 on 4 out of 5 Big Board polls. Duke and Albany are right behind them with 3 top 10 appearances each. All three had good weekends (Duke throttled the Hoyas, Albany broke away from Stony Brook, and Towson blew by Furman), but they'll need to keep it up to stay with the other cool kids in the top 10.

  • Villanova. I am starting to think Villanova is a really good sleeper pick for Final Four. Nova had the weekend off but took care of Bucknell last week to extend their winning streak to 5 games. The Wildcats have scored the 2nd most goals this year, and are 2nd in total points per game as well.

    Moreover, junior star Jake Froccaro leads the nation in goals per game, and is second in points per game. This is a very dangerous team that might really have something special if they can win 3 out of their next 4 versus Fairfield, Brown, Marquette, and Denver.

  • Hofstra. Bit of a tumble for the Pride. Hofstra looked good in their win over OSU back on the 12th, but have been on a 2 game losing streak ever since including last Saturday's loss to Providence. Hofstra has a good resume but the Pride must not let their great start go to waste by not preforming well in its upcoming CAA games.
