Villanova Lacrosse ranked in newest poll

Jack Rice leads Villanova with 22 goals. - Villanova University Athletics

A quick look by the uninformed would look at Villanova Lacrosse's 5-6 record and ask 'How are they ranked'? Anyone who follows the team understands the extraordinary rigors of the schedule and was not surprised when Mike Corrado's Wildcat squad was tabbed with a #19 ranking when this week's Nike/IL Media Poll and the USILA Coaches Poll were released.

On the heels of a victory over #14 St. John's, Villanova is now 4-0 in BIG EAST Conference play including a win over #3 Syracuse.

But what about those six losses? As a refresher. they have come at the hands of #16 Lehigh, #17 Drexel, #12 Princeton, #18 Penn, #4 Maryland, and #9 Penn State (those are the teams' current rankings).

There's no break for 'Nova. The Wildcats next head to South Bend to take on the #2 Irish on Saturday.
