2. Virginia (4-0). Virginia has played a lot of games, but has not been tested. Syracuse will change that.
3. Maryland (2-0). Maryland looked good in defeating Georgetown. Gets the slight edge over Syracuse for now.
4. Syracuse (2-0). Syracuse eked out a victory over perennial thorn-in-its-side Army. Still adjusting to new faces.
