Quint's Top 20: Enter the New Reality

17. Johns Hopkins — The Jays appear to be improving. Two wins in a row, the latest a 14-12 victory over Princeton, gives fans reason for hope. Six fourth-quarter goals, including five in a row, were the knockout punch. Face-offs fueled the run. Brett Baskin had a career day, and JHU is suddenly getting goals from role players, which has been the deciding factor in its two-game win streak. #WeWantMore plays at Syracuse at 1 p.m. Saturday with coach Dave Pietramala looking for career win No. 200.

13. Syracuse — Otto let one slip away. A gorgeous goal put Syracuse in front 13-9 with 10 minutes to go. Their win probability stood at over 90%. Virginia answered to 13-12, and then Bradley Voight scored a man-down goal with 3:45 to go for a 14-12 lead. Games aren't won by a computer or some analytical format. They are decided by players who make game-winning decisions and clutch plays. The Orange needed one more lengthy possession to salt it away—80 seconds is a ton of time. The Cavs finished the game with a 6-1 run, taking the 15-14 thriller in overtime. ‘Cuse committed 11 penalties and botched its matchup with Virginia's Michael Kraus. Bright spots include Jacob Buttermore and Peter Dearth. #HHH tackles Johns Hopkins next — two schools that have combined for 20 NCAA titles but none in this decade.

Hard to argue against what Quint had to say, pretty much spot on.

Dang I'm no Hopkins fan but their spot on his list is pretty disrespectful. They lose to the number 1 and 2 teams in the nation and get 17 while we lose to Colgate and UVA and get 13? These announcers really try to overcompensate for their bias towards their alma mater.

Hopkins is a top 15 team for sure but I think it was how they lost to those teams. They got blown out in both and SU lost in OT to Virginia on more then a few questionable calls. Still no doubt were in for another top end opponent on Sat.
