Team of the Week

Cornell 3-3 Cornell moved into a tie for seventh with Virginia in this week's Inside Lacrosse poll.

Cornell earned two wins away from home last week to jump to a tie for seventh in this week’s Inside Lacrosse poll and take NCAA.com Men’s Lacrosse Team of the Week honors.

The Big Red blasted Binghamton 17-10 on the Bearcats’ home turf on Feb. 24 and then hoisted the Patriot Cup after defeating then-No. 7 Albany at SMU’s Ford Stadium in Dallas on Feb. 28.

Senior midfield Connor Buczek and senior attack Matt Donovan, both Tewaarton Award watch list members, led the scoring in both matchups. The duo combined for nine goals against Binghamton and eight -- with an additional three assists -- against Albany.

Cornell (3-1) faces the team it’s tied with in this week’s poll, No. 7 Virginia (3-1), on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Honorable Mentions:

No. 2 North Carolina (5-0)

North Carolina dumped Denver from the top spot in the rankings with a 12-10 victory at Navy Field. It was sweet redemption for the Tar Heels, who have been eliminated from the NCAA tournament by the Pioneers each of the past three seasons. A five-goal scoring run in the third quarter turned the tide in the contest.

No. 9 Maryland (3-1)

The Terrapins delivered sure victories against No. 11 Penn (11-7) and Drexel (12-3) with a stout defense and lengthy scoring streaks. Matt Rambo had a team-high seven combined points in the two games. Maryland hosts No. 10 Princeton Saturday in its first game against a top-10 team this season.

No. 13 Marquette (5-0)

Marquette won’t be put down. The Golden Eagles started the season 5-0 by surviving four one-point games, including its latest win, a 10-9 thriller against Ohio State in the Midwest Classic at Bellarmine. Marquette trailed the Buckeyes 9-5 entering the fourth quarter before Kryan Clarke scored the game winner with 11 seconds to play.
