NCAA Men's Lacrosse


Who’s Hot?
Loyola (+4): The Greyhounds went on the road to State College and took down Penn State in overtime.
Who’s Not?
Penn State (-5): The Nittany Lions loss, along with yet another one-goal win by Virginia, and strong performances by Albany and Johns Hopkins, drops Penn State down the ladder.
Ohio State (-5): The Buckeyes are 0-2 with both losses coming in extra time, first to Johns Hopkins and on Sunday night to UMass.
Who’s New?
UMass (16): The Minutemen took down Ohio State 12-11 in overtime in a NBC Sports Network-televised game that ended just short of midnight on Sunday.
Drexel (20): Although the Dragons lost their opener, it was only by one goal to a Virginia team that is ranked in the top 10. Drexel is in the running to win the CAA automatic qualifying bid this season, especially with Penn State ineligible for the conference title.
Dropped Out?
Bucknell (previously 15): The Bison fell to defending NEC champion Bryant on Sunday.
Villanova (previously 20): The Wildcats were outlasted in three overtimes by Lehigh.
Key Results
Duke 14, Denver 10: The Blue Devils beat Denver after losing to the Pioneers in their previous three meetings. The win was a top-5 victory for Duke, which isn’t feeling its normal February blues, off to a 2-0 start.
Syracuse 17, Albany 16 (OT): A thriller in the Carrier Dome lived up to its expecations and showed that the Orange and Great Danes are once again NCAA tournament contenders this season.
Loyola 12, Penn State 11 (OT): This decision led to the biggest swing involving top-10 teams in this week’s rankings.
