Nike/LM DI Men's Rankings: Calm Before the Storm

by Lacrosse Magazine Staff | LaxMagazine.com | Twitter
The top seven teams in the rankings remain the same and Albany cracks the top-eight for the first time this year. Notre Dame's dramatic one-goal win over North Carolina didn't drop the Tar Heels at all and the rest of the nation's elite held serve, so to speak, with the exception of Cornell, which lost big to Brown.
Conference tournaments begin this week, starting with the six-team Patriot League bracket and the ACC tournament at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. The former includes four teams ranked between Nos. 15-20 in these rankings, while the latter tournament includes four of the nation's top-six programs. Notre Dame plays Duke and North Carolina plays Syracuse in the ACC semifinals.
The Nike/LM Top 20 will be updated each Monday throughout the season and is determined by the staff of Lacrosse Magazine.
