No. 1 Johns Hopkins (3-0) Coming up: At Hofstra, Saturday, 1 p.m., James M. Shuart Stadium.
Comment: It was only two years ago that the Pride stunned the Blue Jays. Hopkins, which has a 12-game winning streak, does not appear to have a significant weakness.
No. 5 Maryland (3-1) Coming up: Vs. No. 15 Towson, Saturday, 1 p.m., Ludwig Field.
Comment: Confidence restored after thumping Providence by eight goals Monday, the Terps can't sleep against the Tigers despite not having lost to their in-state rivals since 2001. Freshmen Travis Reed, Ryan Young and Grant Catalino lead the team in scoring. No. 6 Navy (3-1) Coming up: At Lafayette, Saturday, noon, Metzgar Fields; vs. Lehigh, Tuesday, 3 p.m., Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.
Comment: Opponents have scored just 22 goals in four games, thanks in part to senior Mikelis Visgauss, who has won 62.5 percent of his faceoffs. Senior attackman Gregory Clement has already matched last year's total of three goals. No. 13 Loyola (2-1) Coming up: Vs. No. 2 Duke, Saturday, 2 p.m., Diane Geppi-Aikens Field.
Comment: The Greyhounds limited No. 17 Penn State to only two second-half goals and one fourth-quarter shot, but the Blue Devils average 16.7 goals and 45.3 shots a game. Freshman goalie Jake Hagelin faces his toughest test to date. No. 15 Towson (1-1) Coming up: At No. 5 Maryland, Saturday, 1 p.m., Ludwig Field.
Comment: If the Tigers hope to end a six-game skid against the Terps, Towson needs seniors Billy Sadtler or Matt Antol to excel in goal. The Tigers' attack has generated 79.3 percent (23 of the team's 29 points) of the offense.
UMBC (1-3) Coming up: Vs. Yale, Saturday, 1 p.m., UMBC Stadium.
Comment: The Retrievers tangle with a Bulldogs squad that upset then-No. 18 Massachusetts on Sunday. Junior attackman Ryan Smith, a transfer from CCBC-Essex, leads UMBC in goals with six. Mount St. Mary's (0-2) Coming up: At No. 19 Bucknell, Saturday, 1 p.m., Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium; vs. No. 3 Virginia, Tuesday, 3 p.m., Waldron Family Stadium.
Comment: Freshman goalie T.C. DiBartolo has fared decently, but could use some help from an offense that has averaged just 18.5 shots a game. Three of the team's top six scorers are freshmen.
