The Baltimore Sun

No. 3 Maryland (2-0)

Coming up: Vs. Georgetown, tomorrow, 1 p.m., Ludwig Field

Comment: The Terps have posted a 7-1 record in the series. Sophomore Brett Weiss (Boys' Latin), who had four goals and four assists for Maryland before transferring, is expected to rotate with sophomore Ryan Schuler as Georgetown's third attackman.

No. 5 Johns Hopkins (0-0)

Coming up: Vs. Siena, tonight, 6,

Homewood Field

Comment: The first meeting between these teams brings a Saints squad that lost four times by one goal last season. Can the Blue Jays solve junior goalie Brent Herbst, who ranked first and second in the nation last year in goals-against average and save percentage, respectively?

No. 6 UMBC (1-0)

Coming up: Vs. Rutgers, tomorrow, 1 p.m.,

UMBC Stadium

Comment: The Retrievers have dropped three of their past four games against the Scarlet Knights, including last season's 6-5 loss. Senior attackman Ryan Smith (Fallston), who led UMBC with 29 goals last season, was quiet in last week's season-opening 14-9 win over Delaware, recording just one assist.

No. 9 Navy (1-0)

Coming up: At No. 4 North Carolina, tonight, 7:30

Comment: The Midshipmen will tangle with a motivated Tar Heels team that has lost six of the past seven meetings, including an 8-7 decision in an NCAA tournament first-round game last season.

No. 16 Loyola (0-1)

Coming up: Vs. No. 20 Towson, tomorrow,

1 p.m., Diane Geppi-Aikens Field

Comment: The Greyhounds nearly upset No. 14 Notre Dame last week even without fifth-year attackman Shane Koppens. Junior attackman Collin Finnerty scored a career-high four goals, but junior attackman Cooper MacDonnell scored just once.

No. 20 Towson (0-0)

Coming up: At No. 16 Loyola, tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Comment: The Tigers' attack will revolve around sophomore Tim Stratton and senior Bill McCutcheon, but don't be surprised if freshmen Sean Maguire (Calvert Hall) and Matt Lamon (St. Mary's) receive some time.
