Their games are pretty much over in the first 15 minutes of each game.

North has been shut down multiple times this year ,Scane and Ortega have not. If you dont think her over the top celebrations will impact the tewaaraton selection committee you are wrong. Is she the flashiest player in the country yes , does taking essentially every draw even in blowout wins help her chances yes.For a player who has the ball in her stick as much as she does the lack of assists is noticeable. I hope a defender gets the award but unlikely.
Cuse vs BC this week, should be good

No one ever said teams like Niagara, Siena and Monmouth are better than your Big 10 teams you hold in such high regard. However there are teams that many believe should be ranked versus some of the Big 10 teams that are below .500 and only play in conference this year. The IL media poll is a little better this week as Maryland is 15, Hopkins is 16. Rutgers at 19 is a little sketchy. But again, the playoffs will be the final answer to these questions. The big concern for the Big 10 is will these teams be invited.

From your list above you may be able to add 2-3 more ACC teams with at large berths based upon their overall record, not just their in conference records (perhaps Duke, ND, Va). I personally think the CAA has some teams that could compete with all the Big 10 teams except of course Northwestern. Could Hofstra beat Hopkins again like last year? I think they can, they have 5 losses but 4 of them are Drexel (2X), Stony Brook and Boston College. Could a Temple beat a Rutgers team? I think they can, they have 3 losses all year to Drexel and Florida (2X). Your point is well taken and expressed more times that we care to read...we will see at the end.

Why even bring up “below .500” ? It’s irrelevant with regard to comparing teams. There have been 3 illustrations on here (unc record vs Jacksonville record, the top 30 based on record and the at large bid based on record) all make it very clear how absurd it is to compare teams base on record. Why bring up Duke and ND? Have you looked at their out of conference schedules? They are a complete Joke.

You or some obviously have a problem with the Big 10 and want to use a teams record to judge the Big 10 teams.

Sorry, you can’t have it both ways.

Anyone who knows anything about this sport knows that The Big 10 is one of the toughest leagues around, always one of the top two conferences. This year is no different.

Please do not bring up Notre Dame or Duke, they have become a Joke in recent years with their Out of Conference Schedules. Although this year Virginia has a very weak Out of Conference Schedule I believe that they usually challenge themselves out of conference.

Go compare Out of Conference schedules over the past several years for Penn State and Hopkins Vs Notre Dame and Duke.

There are many on this site, we have all read their posts, they are the people who tear others down others in an effort to elevate themselves (or their daughter, daughters team, daughters conference etc...).

Anyone trying to knock the Big 10 is doing just that.

Traditionally the Top 4 teams in both The Big 10 and the ACC are very competitive with each other. The Big 10 has 7 Teams The ACC has 8 Teams. There are usually 4 Top 20 caliber Big 10 and there are usually 5 Top 20 Caliber ACC teams. Not a big difference but some on here want to knock the Big 10.

Looking forward to their next meeting, it should be another good one. UNC, BC and Syracuse have clearly separated themselves from the rest of the ACC. ND was clearly over hyped again, Virginia and Duke are probably not Top 10, Louisville borderline Top 20 and Va Tech having a tough year.

That is how they beat Hofstra but I think SBU is a little stronger than Hofstra. I think SBU finds a way to win.

The BC - Cuse game was a good one yesterday. It was good to see Cuse regroup after another top player went down on Thursday. Both teams have very good players and lots of LI girls. Good luck to both teams as they move forward to the ACC tournament.

Division 3 Tufts, a very good team, dominates Dartmouth in what was Dartmouth’s first game of the year. COVID has created some interesting match ups.
