NO. 4 JOHNS HOPKINS (9-2)

Coming up: Vs. Navy, Saturday, 8 p.m.

Comment: The Blue Jays lead the series, 56-26-1, but a 9-8 overtime loss to the Midshipmen last year ended their 36-game winning streak against Navy.

NO. 8 MARYLAND (8-3)

Coming up: Vs. No. 7 North Carolina in ACC tournament, today, 5 p.m.

Comment: Having dropped three of the past four meetings with the Tar Heels, the Terps must overcome the memory of squandering a four-goal lead in the first quarter of an eventual 11-6 loss to North Carolina March 26.

NO. 19 LOYOLA (7-3)

Coming up: Vs. Hobart, Saturday, noon

Comment: The Greyhounds have won 10 of the past 11 games against the Statesmen. Loyola has already clinched a spot in the four-team Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament, which begins May 6.

MOUNT ST. MARY'S (6-5)

Coming up: Vs. Wagner, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Mountaineers have not lost to the Seahawks in 10 meetings, and a win would clinch at least a share of the Northeast Conference regular-season championship.

NAVY (4-8)

Coming up: At No. 4 Johns Hopkins, Saturday, 8 p.m.

Comment: With nothing to play for but pride, can the Midshipmen end the regular season on a high note by knocking off the Blue Jays?

Comment: The Tigers own a 37-4 advantage in the series and have won 13 of the past 14 contests against the Dragons.

UMBC (5-5)

Coming up: Vs. Vermont, Saturday, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Retrievers have not lost to the Catamounts in their seven meetings, but UMBC needed overtime to win last season.
