Nike/LM DI Men's Rankings: Denver Ends Where It Started

by Lacrosse Magazine Staff | LaxMagazine.com | Twitter

When way back in January Lacrosse Magazine released its preseason rankings, Denver was No. 1 and Notre Dame came right behind at No. 2. That's exactly where they end the year, as the Pioneers validated the prognositcation by claiming the program's first national championship and the Irish took Denver to the wire in the semifinals.

The rest of the NCAA tournament results are reflected in our year-end list. "Last week" is considered the last time we published rankings, the week before Selection Sunday. Can't get enough? Check back to LaxMagazine.com soon for our early 2016 rankings. We had Denver pegged in the top spot last year.
