Tough road for SB - might have to take down Penn, BC, MD and UNC. Does anyone think that is possible?

I think SBU will be fine against Penn/Penn State winner.

I think they match up well w/ BC as long as SBU can limit BC fast break goals. They are good against teams that feed from behind the goal. SBU offense should be able to expose BC defense as UNC did in ACC final.

MD vs SBU should be exciting. No reason SBU can't win. MD has shown that they can be beat 1v1 on D.

In my opinion UNC could be the toughest match up for them. As athletic on O and on D.

I think UNC may actually struggle in their first round as VA Tech has played them very close and beating a good team for 3 straight is never easy. If they get past that game I think it will be them vs MD in the finals or in other words for all the parity ,same old teams. SB I think caught MD by surprise last year I don't see that happening again. Game will be hard to watch as the best offensive players on each team are notorious floppers.

This weekend really starts the Stony Brook season. I think they will handle BC but it really is their first test. Two different teams so whoever gets to play their game should win. I will luckily be in Boston......

Weather looks poor in the NE... Exciting match ups.

SBU/BC should be fun. I would like to see SBU come home with a win so they can play at home for Final Four. Could go either way. If SBU can limit BC fast break goals and win some draws I think they win. SBU defense is confusing to teams who haven't played against them before. No matter how much you prepare for it.

I don't think NU can play enough D to hang w UNC.

Same w Navy. Won't be able to keep up w MD.

UF and JMU should be exciting as well. I like JMU top 3 scorers... Big strong girls..I think they create match up problems for UF defense. JMU defense is very solid.

What a game up here in Boston. Hats off to both teams. A lacrosse classic and maybe the best 4/5 game ever played.

Oh stop. SBU is very good. BC may be the best team in the country. It was posted on here months ago that "seeding" would be a huge factor in determining who makes the final four. IMHO if SBU played BC, MD, UNC, JMU they would go 2 - 2.
Would have loved to see SBU win . BC is really good.

Atlantic Sun: Jacksonville

Big East: Florida

Big South: High Point

Big Ten: Maryland

Colonial: JMU / Towson?

Ivy: Penn / Princeton?

Metro: Fairfield

Northeast: Bryant

Pac 12: Southern Cal

Patriot: Navy / Loyola?

Southern: ??

At large:

Virginia
UNC
DUKE
Syracuse
Notre Dame
Georgetown
Northwestern
Hopkins
Penn State
James Madison / Towson?
Princeton / Penn? Maybe Dartmouth, Brown or Yale?
Stanford
Colorado
Navy / Loyola?

Any other teams have a chance?

Some good teams will be left out this year and getting to the final 8 will be tougher than usual.








Bold prediction that teams on that list that won't make it are: Duke, Penn St, Stanford, Princeton, Colorado


20% not bad.

If SBU played a stronger schedule they would've been seeded higher. IMO their preseason does them no favors. I'm a BC fan though and very happy they got the win.

If they played a stronger schedule there is a good chance they would have lost so their seed most likely would have stayed in the neighborhood of 5. Say what you want but the seeding seems to have been correct as teams 1-4 are remaining. In the end the draw did them in as many had been saying all along.

I get the strength of schedule debate. But when does a team that is ranked #1 for weeks on end, end up as the 5 seed. I hear both sides, but they should save strength of schedule and those other metrics for bubble teams.

2014: 16 - 3 going into the tournament. Lost to Syracuse in round of 16.

2015: 18 - 1 going into the tournament. Lost to Princeton in round of 16.

2016: 15 - 3 going into the tournament. Lost to Syracuse in round of 16.

2017: 18 - 1 going into the tournament. Lost to Maryland in round of 8.

2018: 19 - 0 going into the tournament. Lost to Boston College in round of 8.

Every one of the teams that they have lost to in the playoffs plays a tougher schedule during the regular season.
