Since the first season of SoCon lacrosse in 2015, the conference has seen three teams ( Air Force, High Point, Richmond) take home the conference title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. And while Air Force and Richmond have each won two straight over the past four tournaments, never has a team successfully pulled a three-peat. In 2021, Richmond looks to do just that.

In the fall of 2018, Mason Poli was named the interim head coach of the Quinnipiac Bobcats following the firing of Eric Fekete, which was the result of a hazing scandal that suspended the team for fall and prohibited all seniors from playing in the first five games of the season.

When talking about and discussing the Big East many usually bring up Denver and Georgetown first and then mention teams like Villanova and Marquette as potential dark horses. After all, these are the teams that have either won or challenged for the title in recent years. But one name that you don’t hear out of too many folks is Providence. But perhaps they should be getting much more respect than they do.

The Penn State Nittany Lions have been rising to prominence ever since Jeff Tambroni’s arrival ahead of the 2011 season. And in 2019 the Nittany Lions finally arrived.

In the 1980s, winning Ivy League titles and making NCAA Tournament runs were pretty normal at Penn. The Quakers finished either first or second in the Ivy League seven out of Tony Seaman’s eight-year stint. They also made the NCAA Tournament six of those seasons, losing in the Quarterfinals – which was the first round until 1986 – four of those times, making the semifinals once, and losing in the first round once. But that level of consistency seemed to leave Penn with Tony Seaman when he departed for the Johns Hopkins job following the 1990 season.

In 2017, the Ohio State Buckeyes reached what may view as the pinnacle of the sport when they made their first ever Championship Weekend appearance. And while the Buckeyes didn’t come out on top, losing to Maryland in the national title game, it certainly marked their arrival into the elite tier of college lacrosse that they had seemed to be sitting just outside of for so long.

The ACC is always one of the best conferences in the nation and always has been. But in 2021, it will be different. It could be the most competitive season we’ve seen in the conference in quite some time. And while many point to the loaded rosters that teams like Duke and Syracuse boast, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish aren’t getting as much buzz as they deserve.
