Trying to keep up with the conference shuffle in women's lacrosse over the next two seasons will surely require a detailed score card. Major shifts in the landscape are coming with the addition of the Big Ten next spring and changes in the Atlantic Coast Conference, historically the nation's toughest conference. This season, only two of Division I's 13 conferences -- the Ivy League and the Big South -- remain the same as last season. The ACC makeover is already underway, creating a super conference for one year before Maryland departs for the inaugural Big Ten season in 2015.

On Monday the Big Ten Conference and Johns Hopkins announced that the school would be an affiliate member in men's lacrosse beginning with the 2015 season. Here are some key questions about the Blue Jays' move from independent status: What does it mean to be an affiliate member? Johns Hopkins is not a full member of the Big Ten because only the men's lacrosse team will participate in Division I in the league. The women's lacrosse team will remain in the American Lacrosse Conference for one more season before going independent, and the rest of the university's sports will stay at Division III. The men's lacrosse team will still be eligible to compete in a conference tournament and for consideration of individual awards.

The No. 2 Northwestern women's lacrosse team has a habit of handing out beat-downs, not taking them. But No. 4 host Florida used a fast-starting offense to build a big lead and win, 22-4, Saturday. The Wildcats (13-2, 4-1 American Lacrosse Conference), who have won seven NCAA championships in the past eight years, suffered their worst loss since the program returned to Division I 12 years ago. Florida also clinched a share of the American Lacrosse Conference regular-season crown for the third straight year.

This year's NCAA Division I women's tournament looks more like the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament 2.0 than a national tournament. Six quarterfinalists hail from the ACC. Top-seeded and ACC champ Maryland, No. 2 Syracuse, No. 3 North Carolina, No. 6 Virginia, No. 7 Boston College and unseeded Duke come from what might've been the most dominant single season ever by a women's lacrosse conference. Three all-ACC quarterfinal matchups - Maryland vs. Duke, North Carolina vs. Virginia and Syracuse vs. Boston College - ensure that three-quarters of the Final Four will be from the ACC. If the seedings hold up through the title game, Maryland could meet Syracuse for the third time this season, having beaten the Orange in the regular season, 12-10, and in the ACC championship game, 13-7.

Loyola's women's lacrosse team jumped back into the Top 10 after ten weeks away as the Greyhounds rose to No. 9 in this week's Inside Lacrosse Brine Division I Women's Media Top 20, the final poll until after the NCAA championships. The Greyhounds, who won 12 straight games before falling at No. 2 Syracuse, 14-12 in overtime Saturday, jumped up from No. 11. Their good showing against the Orange combined with previous No. 8 Penn State's first-round American Lacrosse Conference tournament loss to Johns Hopkins helped Loyola get back into the Top 10. Maryland, which did not play last week, remained atop the poll for the fourth straight week.

Johns Hopkins' Taylor D'Amore and Florida's Shannon Gilroy are two of the nation's most dangerous attackers in women's lacrosse. As a result, both had to deal with aggressively tight marking and even occasional face-guarding when their teams faced off in the American Lacrosse Conference matchup Saturday at Homewood Field. Nonetheless, D'Amore and Gilroy were able to create scoring chances, and each made the most of her opportunities. In the end, Gilroy got the upper hand, scoring all seven of her goals in the second half as Florida overcame a halftime deficit to pull out a 10-9 victory.
