Commentary.

Safe.

Chris.

Syracuse: Again, valuing the body of work over the record, even though with the Ohio State win, it was hard to decide who to make #1.

Hofstra: More impressed by Penn State's undefeated mark than Hofstra's. With the OSU win, Penn State looks more legit. I'm still questioning Hofstra as of now.

Duke: Remember when people thought Duke wouldn't make the ACC Tournament. Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Johns Hopkins: They just de-legitimized Rutgers in my mind.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes had a really good first quarter, and then nothing. Are they for real?

UVA: The Wahoos looked down and out against Richmond. But a late burst gave them the win.

Rutgers: They're making the Big Ten look like a four bid league, but have Michigan next week.

Binghamton: Welcome to the club, Binghamton. Taking them over BU, Loyola, and maybe starting to consider Robert Morris.

Jason DLB Myers.

Syracuse: Impressive body of work, and if PSU weren't undefeated Cuse would be my #1.

Hofstra: Undefeated yes, but body of work to this point isn't as impressive as PSU or Cuse. I feel like there might be some correction in Hofstra's near future.

Army: Army and Albany are very close in my book. Their Syracuse results are what separate them for me. I'd love to see these two square off.

Georgetown: Georgetown is better than their record, IMO, but that was a win Denver needed badly. I have them slightly over ND at this point because of head-to-head results.

Richmond: Two losses, both to ACC teams by 1 goal; that's pretty impressive to me.

Johns Hopkins: Hop NEEDED that Rutgers win.

UVA: A flawed team, perhaps, but they're doing enough, and dangerous enough, to stay in the top 20 for me.

Rutgers: Will the real Scarlet Knights please stand up?

Yale: I'm still a bit lost with the Ivy League...

Ohio State: I was never high on OSU and their recent skid confirms my thoughts all along, at least in my mind. Not a team I'd be bullish on.

Villanova: February was rough, but March has been all about guts.

BU: Boston's loss slides them to the back of the top 20. I'd love to see them play Michigan at this point. I think that'd be a great match up.
