No. 3 Maryland

Atlantic Coast Conference Last season: 12-6, NCAA runner-up Coach: John Tillman (third season, 25-10; fifth season overall, 45-29) Top returning scorer Owen Blye, senior A (20, 20) Other key returnees Jesse Bernhardt, senior LSM (3, 3; 60 ground balls, 33 caused turnovers) John Haus, senior M (16, 17) Goran Murray, sophomore D (19 ground balls, 14 caused turnovers) Key newcomers Matt Dunn, freshman D Bradlee Lord, freshman A Andrew Walsh, freshman F/O Outlook: Like Loyola, the Terps graduated just two starters, but one was leading scorer Joe Cummings (Loyola). Blye and Haus should be able to keep the offense running while incorporating a few new faces. The defense returns three starting defensemen and junior goalkeeper Niko Amato.
