JOHNS HOPKINS (4-1) * WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. No. 1 North Carolina Saturday (2 p.m.) at Chapel Hill, N.C., followed by Army, Maryland and Navy.

* FACEOFFS: No sooner had Johns Hopkins stunned top-ranked Virginia, 16-6, Saturday before 9,657 at Homewood Field than coach Tony Seaman let his mind flash ahead: "Now we get to play No. 1 again next week. OK, as long as we're the underdogs." . . . This time it'll be North Carolina (6-0), which moved to the top of the U.S. Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association coaches' poll, released yesterday . . . Hopkins moved up from No. 5 to No. 2 . . . Seaman raved about goalie Scott Giardina, saying, "He was a wall, making unbelievable saves." Loyola High defenseman Brian Voelker also earned Seaman's praise after holding Kevin Pehlke, who came in with 26 goals, to one. As to his team's shooting, Seaman said: "We're making it so hard to be a great goalie against us." . . . When Virginia jumped ahead, 4-1, Seaman didn't fret, reasoning that "we'd battle back," which the Blue Jays did, making it 4-4 after one quarter . . . Said Virginia coach Jim Adams: "It was one of those days. Kevin had trouble buying a goal, they defensed us well and Giardina made big saves."

LOYOLA (4-2) * WHAT'S AHEAD: Vs. Towson State Saturday (2 p.m.) at Curley Field.

* FACEOFFS: The Greyhounds let Brown (5-0) off the hook, squandering a 12-8 lead in the fourth quarter and losing, 14-13 . . . Jay McMahon's fourth and final goal capped Brown's comeback . . .
