Temple's upset of Virginia moved the Owls into the fourth spot in the poll this week while North Carolina moved up one after their defeat of then-sixth-ranked William and Mary. Penn State defeated Dartmouth and Princeton defeated Brown, which caused both of these pairs to trade their spots.

Games this week include James Madison hosting Virginia in a key in-state match-up. Meanwhile, conference contests are still going on as UPenn hosts Princeton in the Ivies and William and Mary travels to Old Dominion. All three of these games will take place on Wednesday, April 9. This weekend's action will see Yale hosting Princeton in a key Ivy game and Georgetown travelling to North Carolina to challenge the Heels.
