Syracuse Lacrosse No. 1 In RPI Rankings, Duh

via blog.syracuse.com

Much to Glaude's chagrin, the new RPI Rankings are out and Syracuse remains atop them.

The Orange are 13-1 overall, 2-0 on the road, 4-0 in neutral or "Classic" sites and 7-1 at home.

They're also 3-1 against teams in the Top 5, 6-1 against teams in the Top 10, 7-1 against teams in the Top 20 and 10-1 against teams in the Top 30. So, you know, they're doing very well.

Fellow Big East teams include No. 2 Notre Dame, No. 8 Villanova, No. 22 Georgetown, No. 38 St. John's, No. 45 Rutgers and No. 49 Providence.

The Orange take on St. John's this weekend to wrap up the regular season. A win basically secures their spot as the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Those seedings will be announced Sunday on ESPNU.

Dave Rahme can't imagine a scenerio where the Orange don't get the No. 1.

The bottom line is there is no way the committee can look at SU’s body of work and deny it the No. 1 seed. Here is what must be remembered about lacrosse seedings, though: The selection committee will only seed eight teams. The NCAA will then use geography as the key factor in setting first-round matchups.

The Orange would likely be looking at the winner of the MAAC in the first round, such as Siena or Marist, depending on how that tournament plays out.
