What a difference 2 weeks makes.
2 weeks ago the hoyas had an RPI of 56 and were on shakey ground for making the NCAAs where one slip up could cost them.
Now the Hoyas have an RPI almost 20 points higher and are on a roll with only 2 regular season games remaining.
Current RPI: 38
best win to date is over #33 WV best game to date is a loss to #13 Santa Clara.
Remaining games: @#90 Depaul @#10 ND
the OOC RPI is pretty terrible but everyteam's rpi has gone up over the last 2 weeks: American #169 W Bryant #281 W Georgia Southern: #299 W James Madison #74 W Robber Morris #204 W George Washington #213 W Penn: #78 T avg: was 177 is now 165.
BE games #19 @uconn L #10 @nd #40 Nova W #33 WV W #29 Rutgers L #63 Pitt W #84 @providence W #118 Cinci W #90 Depaul #115 Seton hall T #153 Louisville W
So on the plus side we have 2 games left that will help our RPI. right now we're 2-2 agaisnt the top 50 and 5-3-1 against the top 100 and 7-0-1 against the 100+
women take on Depaul today at 4pm.(EST) you can follow live stats at the link above.
Sunday the Women will take on ND. That game can be watched live on Fox Soccer channel!
Also pay attention to the cincinnati rutgers game today. It's rutger's best chance at losing and it would go a long way if they lost or tied a game. We cannot win the BE or even get second if rutgers wins out.

Hoyas subbed out starting goal keeper in the 36th minute. I hope she's ok. Currently the 50th minute still no score. Appear to being out played currently. Hope we can pull this out and Jackie isn't hurt for the ND game.

Damn. Hoyas lose in OT 2-1. The women had already locked up a first round bye in the BET. Women will most likely finish 3rd in their division for the second year in a row. I think a win on sunday would lock up a NCAA bid.
Also the 6pm ND on sunday while being broad cast by Fox soccer won't actually air till tuesday. Grrrrr.

No, don't know what happened to Jackie. We lost with minutes remaining in the 2nd OT. Trap game with ND on national tv on sunday. DePaul is a middle of the road team but this is their best team in years and this win gets them in the Big East tourney for the first time in ages. This was a huge game for them and they had flyers posted around their campus.

So if the season ended today the women would get a bye into the quarter finals of the BET. But would have to travel to play at St. John's. Hoyas can only finish 3rd. several teams can finish second in the other division.

women lose 2-0, but put up a valiant effort in the loss. RPI should be pretty good. have a winning BE record in 2 top 50 RPI wins. I think we're in if we win our Quarterfinal match. If not we'll sweat it out on selection day.

Women had a good 1st half, but were not able to capitalize. 0-0 at half. The ladies had 8 corners to st. john's 2 and 9 shots to their 4 and 3 SOG to none. Hopefully they keep the momentum and get one in the back of the net.

Sara Jordan, co-BE offensive player of the year; congratulations Sara:
HARTFORD, Conn. - Six different schools were represented when the BIG EAST Conference presented its women's soccer postseason honors and named its all-conference selections on Thursday evening at the Hartford Hilton Hotel, in Hartford, Conn. Georgetown graduate student Sara Jordan and Notre Dame junior forward Lauren Fowlkes were named the BIG EAST Offensive Players of the Year, while Irish sophomore Courtney Barg was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year.
Nice recruiting class one of which is a double plus for georgetown athletics: "Emily is a two-time All-State selection for soccer and is also an All-American and All-State selection for indoor and outdoor track in the 800M, 4x400, 4x800 and 1600M." "She will play soccer and run track here at Georgetown."
