2010 NCAA Division I Men's Top 20 Preseason Poll

Once again we have been fortunate to gather a group of highly respected, knowledgeable, and successful individuals from the upstate lacrosse community to participate in our poll. Our group represents all levels of lacrosse, from youth and high school program founders, tournament organizers, high school, college, and international team coaches, and the lacrosse press. A true cross section of lacrosse experts, our group represents people serious and passionate about the game, and all are true fans of the sport of lacrosse.

There are no earth-shattering differences here from the other major polls except that Harvard comes in three places higher, getting the edge over UMBC, Navy, and Georgetown. We'll probably clear that up March 3rd when Harvard travels to Georgetown for their second game of the season.
