UConn remains at No. 3 in the field hockey poll. Maryland is now at No. 2, replacing Duke which now has 3 losses and is now at No. 4 in the poll. Duke has losses to No. 1 North Carolina, No. 19 Syracuse, and to No. 12 Princeton. Duke also has a neutral site win over Maryland.

Duke lost again (UVa). UConn looking good for hosting if they win out.

My current projection:

Mia/Stan @ 1 UNC / NWern v Princeton
Michigan @ 4 Lou / Iowa v Virginia
Fair/Amer @ 2 MD / Delaware v St Joes
BC @ 3 UConn / Duke v Harvard

If FH uses the 500-mile rule, then only 3 teams (Mia/Stan winner, NWern, Duke) would be beyond that
Updated:

Kent/Stan^ @ 1 UNC / Mich^ v Del
Harvard @ 4 UVa / Duke v St Joes

Fair/Amer @ 2 MD / Princeton v BC
NWern @ 3 Lou / UConn^ v Iowa

^ = Beyond 500 miles

Louisville (2-1 ot to W&M) and Michigan (3-0 to RU) suffer upset losses!

Looking like the only interesting thing is going to be the battle to see who loses to UNC in the final.

With upsets like these, it helps to explain how UConn maintains a No. 3 ranking in the field hockey poll. A lot of teams of odd losses.

Duke lost again, which should finally take them out of contention and plummet them in the polls.

Latest Coaches poll:
UConn holds at #3
Duke, currently in 6th place in conference, inexplicably holds at #4, AHEAD of Louisville & UVa which both have much better records against the same conference opponents. Both have beaten Duke as well.

Does Coach K have a niece, grand daughter, neighbor, girlfriend playing in the team?
That would explain the ranking

Louisville Field Hockey is being punished for their basketball team's indiscretions - NCAA punishment at it's best. UVA is either being penalized for taking academic seriously (see UNC) and/or the continue rumors that if the B1G expands again, UVA will jump to them.
