St. John’s is still No.1. Wins over ranked teams on a weekly basis tend to do that. Princeton held steady in the second spot, despite suffering its first league loss to a shaky Brown team. Fairfield picked up some steam, moving up three spots to No.3. Hofstra took a tumble from fourth to ninth following a lopsided loss to Wright State in an ESPN Bracket Buster game. Seton Hall held at five, while LIU moved up one place to sixth. Iona and Rider each moved up one place to seventh and eighth, respectively, while St. Peter’s held steady at No.10.
