Women’s Lacrosse assigned number five seed for NCAA Tournament

Stony Brook, which received all 23 number one votes this past weekend and most recently won the America East Championship for a sixth straight season, is seeded below Maryland, North Carolina, James Madison and Boston College, which were awarded the No. 1, No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4 seeds, respectively.

Stony Brook has had its fair share of underseeding in the past, specifically last season. The Seawolves were going to be ranked seventh in last year’s poll, but were relegated to a No. 8 seed. The team went on to face Maryland in the quarterfinals and lost in the final minutes.

I mean, we have the number one non-conference [Rating Percentage Index] in the country,” Spallina said. “That’s got to be worth something. If we aren’t number one, what they’re basically saying is if you’re not in the Big 10, if you’re not in the ACC, you can’t be a one or two, maybe even a three or a four. So they’re going to have to look at themselves in the mirror and figure it out. I would just hope that just because we aren’t a power five conference, that we get the respect that we deserve.”
