    Found this all- in- one "Power Ranking" of women's lacrosse rankings/ ratings thought I'd share- http://www.laxpower.com/update16/binwom/rating01.php .

    In it, the Buffs are currently #20, so very respectable for a young program. RPI looks a little low (#33) to contend for an at-large berth this year, although as a long-time outlying sport, maybe/ hopefully their selection committee doesn't rely on the (massively flawed tool) RPI as much as the other sports seem to do.

    For those, like me, who didn't know, looks like the NCAA Lacrosse tournament is a 26 team bracket, with the top 6 seeds earning byes into the 2nd round (per http://www.ncaa.com/championships/lacrosse-women/d1/road-to-the-championship).

    ____________________________________________________________

    Also wanted to mention- if you like to support the Buffs in general, and/ or have wanted to specifically check out Buffs lacrosse, this Friday's match at 2:00 against USC would be a GREAT game to go to. With 4 games left in the regular season, this represents the last regular*** season chance for the Buffs to get a signature win, as the Trojans are currently the class of the MPSF conference, ranked #6 nationally and are one of only two D1 schools (along with dominant #1 Maryland) to be undefeated.
    (***There is a conference tournament, so assume if the Buffs get a 1st round win (or earn a bye) there, they'll have to face Stanford (this year's host) and/ or USC again as they hopefully work towards a conference tournament championship and NCAA tournament auto-berth.)

    I know a few of the players. They're pretty fired up for this. I'm flying into town tomorrow night. I'm going to try to make it, but I have a pretty full schedule in the afternoon, so I'm not optimistic. The tough thing about justifying frequent trips to Boulder, is actually following through.
