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!

  1. Syracuse (Last Week: 1) - The one-goal wins have returned!
  2. Maryland (LW: 2) - This team is “awesome. Fantastic.”
  3. Duke (LW: 7) - They throttled Virginia and on the right track as they prep for Marquette and the ACC Tournament.
  4. Denver (LW: 3) - They gave up 12 goals to St. John’s, but they’re still the best team in the Big East.
  5. Ohio State (LW: 10) - Throttling Michigan in the Big House is always a good feeling.
  6. Albany (LW: 6) - A slow start against Binghamton resulted in six unanswered, but Yale might be their biggest game this season.
  7. Notre Dame (LW: 9) - The Irish benefit from an off week, but how will they do against North Carolina?
  8. Johns Hopkins (LW: 13) - At-large chances increase after beating Penn State, and should be fine against Michigan.
  9. Penn State (LW: 5) - A must-win game against Rutgers lingers on Sunday.
  10. 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?
  11. Hofstra (LW: 4) - Another close game, but it was a loss to Drexel, and it now puts them on the bubble.
  12. Rutgers (Last Week: 14) - They lost their game against Maryland more than Maryland won that game.
  13. Army West Point (LW: 8) - The Black Knights are also on the bubble after losing to Navy on the road.
  14. Towson (LW: 12) - Towson locked themselves a spot in the CAA Tournament.
  15. Richmond (LW: 15) - A possible SoCon title matchup looms this weekend against Air Force.
  16. 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.
  17. Boston University (LW: 23) - They didn’t collapse and could get the second seed in the Patriot League Tournament tonight.
  18. 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?
  19. Villanova (LW: 21) - After beating Georgetown, the Cats have St. John’s this weekend.
  20. Monmouth (LW: 22) - Monmouth should have an easy path to win the MAAC.
  21. Brown (LW: 25) - Tough loss to Yale, but managed to bounce back against Providence, and have Cornell this weekend.
  22. 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.
  23. Loyola (LW: 20) - The Hounds can still get the top seed in the Patriot League with a win over Army tonight.
  24. Binghamton (LW: 19) - Two straight losses to UMBC and Albany don’t help America East chances, and Syracuse is up next on Saturday.
  25. Virginia (LW: 23) - Many Wahoo fans probably don’t want to play Penn in a meaningless game next Saturday.
  26. Robert Morris (LW: 30) - Bobby Mo is at Bryant in what could be a NEC playoff game in a couple weeks.
  27. Marquette (LW: 26) - The loss to Providence doesn’t help Marquette’s chances of getting anything higher than the fourth seed.
  28. Air Force (LW: 31) - They can take second place in the SoCon with a win over Richmond.
  29. Penn (LW: 32) - Barring a huge collapse against Dartmouth, the odds of making the Ivy League Tournament are in their favor.
  30. 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.
  31. Cornell (LW: 36) - A slow start to begin the season is resulting in a possible trip to the Ivy League Tournament.
  32. Stony Brook (LW: 34) - America East play continues tonight against UMass Lowell.
  33. Bryant (LW: 29) - Not a good look to lose to Hobart, and hopefully a bounceback performance against Robert Morris is in store.
  34. Navy (LW: 40) - Huge win for the Mids over Army and it solidifies a spot in the Patriot League Tournament starting Tuesday.
  35. UMBC (LW: 39) - Ryan Moran’s squad got a big win over Binghamton last week, and take on Hartford on Saturday.
  36. Michigan (LW: 28) - Losing 18-7 at home against Ohio State isn’t a good look.
  37. Sacred Heart (LW: 35) - A good #WhitneyInOT goal over St. Joe’s last week.
  38. Harvard (LW: 33) - Harvard is pretty much out of the Ivy League tourney after the Penn loss.
  39. Bucknell (LW: 38) - Win-and-in scenario tonight against Lehigh for the final Patriot League Tournament spot.
  40. UMass (LW: 42) - The Minutemen continue to improve after a slow start.
  41. Drexel (LW: 46) - The Dragons upset Hofstra after falling behind big time, and celebrate 75 years of lacrosse against Delaware on Saturday.
  42. Lehigh (LW: 37) - Win-and-in scenario tonight at home against Bucknell for the final Patriot League Tournament spot.
  43. Hobart (LW: 43) - Big win for the Statesmen over Bryant in NEC play.
  44. 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)?
  45. 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.
  46. Vermont (LW: 41) - A promising season will come to an end with their season finale against UMBC next weekend.
  47. Holy Cross (LW: 51) - Holy Cross is in the Patriot League Tournament before the season finale, and will probably play Navy on Tuesday.
  48. Georgetown (LW: 49) - The Hoyas got an in-state win over Mount St. Mary’s on Tuesday.
  49. Fairfield (LW: 47) - Fairfield had big expectations, and a loss puts them to rest.
  50. Colgate (LW: 48) - The Raiders won’t be playing in any postseason lacrosse after Lafayette and before Syracuse.
  51. Hartford (LW: 50) - They lost to UMass Lowell, but earned a comeback win over Sacred Heart.
  52. 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.
  53. Mount St. Mary’s (LW: 52) - A loss to Hobart ends their NEC Tournament chances.
  54. St. Joe’s (LW: 53) - St. Joe’s won’t be in the NEC Tournament.
  55. Wagner (LW: 59) - The Seahawks’ NEC Tournament chances are also very slim.
  56. Canisius (LW: 54) - Two bad losses to Siena and Robert Morris this week, but do take on Monmouth this afternoon.
  57. UMass Lowell (LW: 60) - At this point, it’s just improving for next season for the River Hawks, who have a lot of upside.
  58. Mercer (LW: 56) - They gave Jacksonville life in SoCon play.
  59. Bellarmine (LW: 57) - They fell to Richmond, which was pretty much expected.
  60. High Point (LW: 58) - The Panthers’ season is nearly over, and it’ll be toast with a loss to Jacksonville.
  61. Jacksonville (LW: 67) - Could they make the SoCon Tournament?
  62. Siena (LW: 66) - Could they make the MAAC Tournament?
  63. Lafayette (LW: 61) - The season concludes tonight with Colgate.
  64. Quinnipiac (LW: 62) - They’re on the road against Siena this afternoon.
  65. Manhattan (LW: 64) - Same old Manhattan with a big loss to Marist.
  66. Dartmouth (LW: 63) - After winning, they returned to losing, as they took the L to Princeton.
  67. St. John’s (LW: 65) - The Red Storm keep losing.
  68. Cleveland State (LW: 68) - Good win over Division II Walsh College, can they get a win over Sacred Heart or Canisius in their final two games?
  69. VMI (LW: 69) - They lost to Air Force.
  70. NJIT (LW: 70) - DidNJITWin.com. (Answer: YES...against Hampton)
  71. Hampton (LW: 71) - Still a work in progress.
