College Hockey:
Lowell Jumps Into Top 10; Miami Maintains Lead

Massachusetts-Lowell vaulted into the top 10 of the USCHO.com/CBS College Sports Division I Men’s Poll on Monday, checking in at No. 9 after home wins last weekend over Colgate and Northeastern.

That moved the River Hawks up four spots.

Miami kept the top spot in the poll despite a Saturday night home loss to Michigan State. But the RedHawks now have just 26 first-place votes; No. 2 Denver has 20.

The Spartans were one of two teams to enter the poll. They’re 20th after improving to 4-2 with the overtime victory over Miami.

Massachusetts also entered the top 20 at No. 17 after improving to 3-0 with a victory over Maine last Friday.

Colorado College was a big mover in the positive direction, improving four spots to No. 15 after a home sweep of Michigan Tech.

Minnesota, formerly 11th in the poll, fell out of the rankings after failing to score in two home losses to Denver that dropped the Golden Gophers to 0-3-1.

Minnesota-Duluth, which was 18th last week, also dropped out.

A home-and-home series Friday and Saturday between No. 4 Boston University and Lowell highlights this weekend’s play. Also Saturday, No. 11 Princeton hosts No. 7 Yale in the nonconference Showdown at Princeton.
