Poll results that are in:(i'll update later as they come in) Soccer Buzz: Women down to 21 from 19 NSCAA Regional Polls: Men up to 4 from 5; Women down to 2 from 1 Soccer times: Men down from 24 to 27; women stay at 18 Toppdrawer Soccer: Men up to 35 from 38; Women up to 18 from 20. (remember this is placement in the NCAA tournament where there are 48 mens teams and 64 womens teams and not a top 25 in the nation it's more of a predictor)
Big East Standings: The men are currently Tied for 3rd in the Blue division with 9 pts behind ND with 13, Uconn and Providence each with 10, but Providence has played one more game than the hoyas; The women are Currently tied for 3rd with 12 pts in the National division behind ND(21) and rutgers(16), but have played 2 less games than those teams.
Big East Honor roll: Alex Verdi(D) was named to the honor roll this week. There were no women this week.
NSCAA National Poll: Men are 28thup one form 29th; women are 19th down two from 17.
The men picked up a much needed road win against Pitt, keeping us near the top of the Blue division standings. Assuming the canceled game @ Notre Dame does not get reschedules, we just have three games left (all at home), this Saturday against West Virginia, Adelphi College, and then senior day against Marquette.
The women, however, lost two straight overtime games on the road to West Virginia and Pitt. They also have three games left: a makeup home game against St. John's on Tuesday and then two road games against Louisville and Cincinnati
Lets finish strong

Women won 1-0 over Louisville on friday, the men won 1-0 over WV in very difficult conditions.
The men are currently in 3rd in their division but only 2 pts out of first. They play ND on wednesday in a make up of the earlier postponed game. ND is in first so a win there and a win against last placed Marquette on senior day would probably win them the division( assumes that Uconn doesn't win against seton hall and @ pitt one tie would open the door for a hoya division title. which is a pretty good shot since Uconn has sturggled with scoring at times this year)
The women are currently in second, but has no chance to catch ND who is still undefeated. At this point they have clinched a spot in the BET but it will be ND's to lose and they have the home field advantage.

The hoyas lock up the bye with a 0-0 tie at Cincy. Kind of frusterating because the hoyas had the run of play but could not find the back of the net despite out shooting cincy 12-5 and had an advantage on corners 7-1. The cincy keeper did well with 6 saves. Unlucky not to get a win. But a tie was all they needed.

to clarify the hoyas wrapped up second place in the division behind ND. none of the teams below them can catch them. If rutgers wins they'll be tied on points but we won thee head to head so we'd get the #2 spot.

Hoya girls won! Scored in the 2 OT of a game they dominated. HSB, i think you got the stats at the end of regulation. They scored in the 2nd overtime for the 1-0 victory. Outshot Cincy 14-7. I think that just about locks up a NCAA bid. Home game for Big East tourney.

It's all good HSB. What do you think about the men's chances? They got ND and Marquette so they should probably end up 1-1. I think they need a victory in the Big East tourney to merit a NCAA bid. Hopefully they pull out a victory against ND. That would help big time.

Marquette should be a win so getting a result against ND(tie or win) would be great. According to topdrawersoccer the men are securely into the tournament as it stands today: www.topdrawersoccer.com/component/option,com_topdrawer/Itemid,313/gender,men/ The men are 33rd out of 48 teams expected to make the tournament. So I think 1-1 to end the season and a win in the BET would be just fine in getting the men in.

NSCAA Women stay at 23rd despite 3 wins this week! The men seem to have lost all the respect they had earned with the early unbeaten streak and now are no longer receiving any votes despite the fact that they could end up winning the division. Oh well polls are screwy and don't really matter like in basketball.
