Keep Your Eyes on This

Division I: New Mexico took the top spot in the NSCAA Coaches' Poll for the first time this season, but still sit sixth in the RPI. The Lobos are the last remaining unbeaten team, but have not faced as many ranked opponents as others in stronger conferences. New Mexico looks to finish its unbeaten regular season on Saturday against UNLV.

Division II: Christian Brothers enters the top 10 of the NSCAA Coaches' Poll for the first time this season after completing an undefeated conference record in the Gulf South. Leading the way for the Buccaneers are junior defender David Skull, junior midfielder Yannick Skull and sophomore midfielder Michael Hollier who all joined GSC Freshman of the Year Jose Ferraz on the All-GSC First Team. 

Division III: The fight for the No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament is up for grabs now that top-ranked St. Lawrence is no longer perfect. The Saints tied Vassar (and fell in penalty kicks) in a Liberty League semifinal on Wednesday, snapping its 16-game win streak. The door is now open for Messiah, Christopher Newport and Trinity (Texas) to win out and make the selection committee's job a little more difficult.
