New, 19 comments

Syracuse lacrosse fell to the #4/4 spot in both polls this week, after a disappointing loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels. The ACC continues to feature all five teams in the top 10 of both polls.

The Syracuse Orange fell two spots in both polls this week after a loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels this past weekend. UNC replaces SU in that number two slot while the Maryland Terrapins stay steady at #3/3. Meanwhile, the Duke Blue Devils jump to #6/6 after solidifying a spot in the ACC Tournament. The final ACC team, the Virginia Cavaliers, move down to #10/9 after its loss to Duke. UVA will not make the ACCT, and will instead play Penn in the ACC Showcase Game.
