Seton Hall remains in the top spot, but only by a narrow margin. A home win over Canisius tonight (Feb. 1) and a road win at MAAC heavyweight Siena on Friday (Feb. 5) could vault Iona into the top spot. St. John’s held steady at three, while Stony Brook, which took over sole possession of first place in the America East, moved up a spot to fourth. Fairfield dropped down a place to fifth.

Princeton moved up a spot to sixth, while St. Peter’s followed suit and jumped a place to seventh. Rutgers dropped two places to eighth, while Army and St. Francis dropped out. Rider and Hofstra are both back in the poll after a short absence.
