So included in our home slate this year are games against # 55 Davidson, # 79 Northeastern, # 90 Charleston, # 102 UNCG, # 106 Stanford, # 119 Hofstra, and # 133 W&M.

On the road we face # 8 UNC, # 79 Northeastern, # 86 Georgia State, # 90 Charleston, # 119 Hofstra, # 133 W&M and # 144 Furman.

14 total games against teams that made the Top 150 on this list. Lot's of opportunities for quality wins based on these projections.

Haha you aren't kidding. Did they even look at who they lost and how they finished with a senior heavy line up last year?

Other than that seems pretty logical. Swap them and Delaware.

Remember guys, a big factor is strength of schedule, i'm not sure what Towson's schedule looks like but perhaps it's playing a factor in these rankings

UNCG is ranked too low, they are better than that. NE and C of C are also better than the ranking to me. Davidson may be a little high but are well coached. Let's wait on the Tribe for a bit they may be high but are well coached. Hofstra lost Gustys but do have some scorers-can they get enough stops. They always seem to have talented players. CAA up for grabs but NE and C of C appear to be the teams that UNCW has to get past.
