Selection committee reveals early top 10

  Syracuse tops the selection committee's initial top 10.

The DI men’s lacrosse selection committee announced its top 10 teams on Saturday. Gene Doris, the chair of the selection committee and athletic director at Fairfield University, said that if the conference tournament were to begin tomorrow, this is what the committee thinks it would look like.

“But, obviously a lot of change is going to happen,” he said. “We are only through about half the schedule with a lot of lacrosse to play, including the conference tournaments. This is kind of that initial look.”
