Women’s poll sees Wisconsin still on top

The top six spots in this week’s USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll are unchanged from a week ago, and that includes Wisconsin staying the top team in the country with 11 of 15 first-place votes.

Cornell, with the four other first-place votes, sits in the second spot, while Boston University (No. 3), Minnesota (No. 4), Mercyhurst (No. 5) and Minnesota-Duluth (No. 6) are where they were this time last week.

Boston College is the new seventh-ranked team, leap-frogging last week’s No. 7 team, North Dakota, which is now ranked eighth.

Providence stays at No. 9, while Harvard, unranked a week ago, enters the poll this week as the country’s tenth-best team.

      Picking up Marie-Philip Poulin, Catharine Ward, and Jenn Wakefield helped too.

      Having watched Wisconsin’s program develop, I hope BU understands how hard it will be to win in the NCAA tournament. I attended UW’s quarterfinal games in 06 and 07 – Both were multiple overtime games. The 07 game against Harvard took 4 OTs and ended 1-0.
