With the regular season starting to wind down, let’s get to this week’s rankings and let the disagreements begin to kick start your weekend!
- Syracuse (Last Week: 1) - The one-goal wins have returned!
- Maryland (LW: 2) - This team is “awesome. Fantastic.”
- Duke (LW: 7) - They throttled Virginia and on the right track as they prep for Marquette and the ACC Tournament.
- Denver (LW: 3) - They gave up 12 goals to St. John’s, but they’re still the best team in the Big East.
- Ohio State (LW: 10) - Throttling Michigan in the Big House is always a good feeling.
- Albany (LW: 6) - A slow start against Binghamton resulted in six unanswered, but Yale might be their biggest game this season.
- Notre Dame (LW: 9) - The Irish benefit from an off week, but how will they do against North Carolina?
- Johns Hopkins (LW: 13) - At-large chances increase after beating Penn State, and should be fine against Michigan.
- Penn State (LW: 5) - A must-win game against Rutgers lingers on Sunday.
- Yale (LW: 11) - Their offense is still clicking, with guys such as Ben Reeves and Matt Gaudet, but can they win the Ivy League championship?
- Hofstra (LW: 4) - Another close game, but it was a loss to Drexel, and it now puts them on the bubble.
- Rutgers (Last Week: 14) - They lost their game against Maryland more than Maryland won that game.
- Army West Point (LW: 8) - The Black Knights are also on the bubble after losing to Navy on the road.
- Towson (LW: 12) - Towson locked themselves a spot in the CAA Tournament.
- Richmond (LW: 15) - A possible SoCon title matchup looms this weekend against Air Force.
- Princeton (LW: 16) - Dartmouth is nothing, but Harvard and Cornell wrap up the regular season, and a win against either team puts them in the Ivy League Tournament.
- Boston University (LW: 23) - They didn’t collapse and could get the second seed in the Patriot League Tournament tonight.
- North Carolina (LW: 18) - Did the loss against Syracuse crush their at-large chances, or can they still make the NCAA Tournament with three straight wins?
- Villanova (LW: 21) - After beating Georgetown, the Cats have St. John’s this weekend.
- Monmouth (LW: 22) - Monmouth should have an easy path to win the MAAC.
- Brown (LW: 25) - Tough loss to Yale, but managed to bounce back against Providence, and have Cornell this weekend.
- Providence (LW: 17) - Good win against Marquette to put them ranked, but they lost in double #WhitneyInOT to Brown, and travel to play Denver tomorrow.
- Loyola (LW: 20) - The Hounds can still get the top seed in the Patriot League with a win over Army tonight.
- Binghamton (LW: 19) - Two straight losses to UMBC and Albany don’t help America East chances, and Syracuse is up next on Saturday.
- Virginia (LW: 23) - Many Wahoo fans probably don’t want to play Penn in a meaningless game next Saturday.
- Robert Morris (LW: 30) - Bobby Mo is at Bryant in what could be a NEC playoff game in a couple weeks.
- Marquette (LW: 26) - The loss to Providence doesn’t help Marquette’s chances of getting anything higher than the fourth seed.
- Air Force (LW: 31) - They can take second place in the SoCon with a win over Richmond.
- Penn (LW: 32) - Barring a huge collapse against Dartmouth, the odds of making the Ivy League Tournament are in their favor.
- Delaware (LW: 27) - They’ve struggled ever since the upset of Rutgers, and could be eliminated from the CAA Tournament with a loss to Drexel.
- Cornell (LW: 36) - A slow start to begin the season is resulting in a possible trip to the Ivy League Tournament.
- Stony Brook (LW: 34) - America East play continues tonight against UMass Lowell.
- Bryant (LW: 29) - Not a good look to lose to Hobart, and hopefully a bounceback performance against Robert Morris is in store.
- Navy (LW: 40) - Huge win for the Mids over Army and it solidifies a spot in the Patriot League Tournament starting Tuesday.
- UMBC (LW: 39) - Ryan Moran’s squad got a big win over Binghamton last week, and take on Hartford on Saturday.
- Michigan (LW: 28) - Losing 18-7 at home against Ohio State isn’t a good look.
- Sacred Heart (LW: 35) - A good #WhitneyInOT goal over St. Joe’s last week.
- Harvard (LW: 33) - Harvard is pretty much out of the Ivy League tourney after the Penn loss.
- Bucknell (LW: 38) - Win-and-in scenario tonight against Lehigh for the final Patriot League Tournament spot.
- UMass (LW: 42) - The Minutemen continue to improve after a slow start.
- Drexel (LW: 46) - The Dragons upset Hofstra after falling behind big time, and celebrate 75 years of lacrosse against Delaware on Saturday.
- Lehigh (LW: 37) - Win-and-in scenario tonight at home against Bucknell for the final Patriot League Tournament spot.
- Hobart (LW: 43) - Big win for the Statesmen over Bryant in NEC play.
- Furman (LW: 44) - Would you believe me if I said Furman’s the first SoCon team to clinch a spot in their conference tournament (you should)?
- Marist (LW: 45) - The Red Foxes are 2-2 in MAAC play with must-win games ahead against Detroit Mercy and a Siena team that’s starting to find their legs.
- Vermont (LW: 41) - A promising season will come to an end with their season finale against UMBC next weekend.

- Hartford (LW: 50) - They lost to UMass Lowell, but earned a comeback win over Sacred Heart.
- Detroit Mercy (LW: 55) - A three-goal loss to Monmouth isn’t that bad, but they hope they’ll play the Hawks again in the MAAC Tournament.
- Mount St. Mary’s (LW: 52) - A loss to Hobart ends their NEC Tournament chances.
- St. Joe’s (LW: 53) - St. Joe’s won’t be in the NEC Tournament.
- Wagner (LW: 59) - The Seahawks’ NEC Tournament chances are also very slim.
- Canisius (LW: 54) - Two bad losses to Siena and Robert Morris this week, but do take on Monmouth this afternoon.

- Mercer (LW: 56) - They gave Jacksonville life in SoCon play.
- Bellarmine (LW: 57) - They fell to Richmond, which was pretty much expected.
