Check this page each Monday for the latest United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) poll and a LaxMagazine.com analysis of the rankings.

Who's Hot?

Delaware (+7): The Blue Hens did not receive one vote in last week's poll. This week, courtesy of another epic run through the CAA tournament and victories over Hofstra and UMass, they're No. 14. They've earned an NCAA tournament first-round date at Duke, which should beware Delaware.

Bucknell (+4): The Bison's unbeaten run through the Patriot League is even more impressive considering Colgate beat Maryland.

North Carolina (+3): The Tar Heels are back in the top 10 after surviving Notre Dame's comeback with a Pat Foster goal in overtime.

Who's Not?

Hofstra (-5): The Pride nearly played themselves right out of NCAA tournament contention with their second loss of the season to Delaware. That said, no one else has been able to beat Hofstra. What do the Hens have on the Pride?

Maryland (-3): The Terps were without injured stars and leading scorers Grant Catalino and Joe Cummings for their dud in the regular season finale against Colgate. Both players are nursing broken bones in their hands.

Stony Brook (-3): Seawolves coach Rick Sowell said in preseason to look out for Hartford. Unfortunately for him, that prophecy rang all too true.

Army, Yale and Loyola (dropped out): Each met an uninspiring end.

Who's New?

No. 14 Delaware: Blue Hens coach Bob Shillinglaw is one win shy of 300 for his career.

No. 19 Hartford: The Hawks earned their first-ever America East championship and NCAA tournament appearance after Ryan Compitello scored with one second remaining to beat Stony Brook.

No. 20 Siena: The Saints are back on top of the MAAC and NCAA tournament-bound after topping Detroit Mercy in the conference championship game.
