Penn Quakers

Face-Off Yearbook Ranking: 11
Warrior DI Men’s Media Poll: 15
Coaches Poll Ranking: 18
2013 Record: 8-5 (3-3 in Ivy League)

Coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2011, Penn stumbled the next year to a 3-10 record. In the offseason coach Mike Murphy decided it was time to change the team’s style and be more aggressive. “I just made a decision that we were going to play faster and get up and down,” Murphy said. The team finished the 2013 season tied with Delaware in scoring (9.00 GPG, T-43rd) while having the best scoring defense in DI (7.38 GAA). With returners at both ends, Penn will look to hold the line on D while becoming more potent on O.

Inside Lacrosse is taking a closer look at the top 40 teams from the Face-Off Yearbook, as well as much more counting down to the 2014 lacrosse season. Pick up your Face-Off Yearbook here for your tablet or smartphone, and read more about the Bucknell Bison below.

Bucknell Bison

Face-Off Yearbook Preseason Ranking: 15
Warrior Men’s DI Media Poll: 14
USILA Coaches’ Poll: 15
2013 Finish: 12-4; Lost in Patriot League championship

Bucknell is unconventional, difficult to plan for and always seems to have an element of the unknown.

Last year, the unknown X-factor were breakthrough performances by freshmen. This year, those freshman have a year under their belts and are no longer under the radar, making this a team with higher expectations heading into the season.

Inside Lacrosse is taking a closer look at the top 40 teams from the Face-Off Yearbook, as well as much more counting down to the 2014 lacrosse season. Pick up your Face-Off Yearbook here for your tablet or smartphone, and read more about the Villanova Wildcats below.

Villanova Wildcats

Face-Off Yearbook Ranking: 18
2013 Record: 7-8 (5-1 Big East); lost in Big East championship

Villanova’s experience lies on the defensive end of the field, while the offense will retain its speedy identity, albeit with new personnel. Despite a slow start, a strong push in conference play had the Wildcats as the No. 1 seed in the Big East Tournament last season, and they’ll face a similarly tough early test in 2014.
