The top of the Pac-12 Conference standings are crowded, but the Sun Devils have played themselves into a prime position. Three teams are currently tied a top the conference with a 7-2 record, with Arizona State locked in a battle for first place with Stanford and USC. The Sun Devils and Trojans will match up at Sun Devil Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium this Friday, Apr. 22 at 3 PM in a contest that will have a major impact on tournament seeding. If Arizona State wins, they would claim at least a share of the regular season Pac-12 Title for the first time in program history. The Maroon & Gold can finish lower than the No. 3 seed regardless of what happens in the season finale, which is their highest conference finish ever.
SUN DEVILS IN THE RANKINGS
Arizona State is currently ranked in the Top-25 in one of two major national polls, the third straight week they have been ranked. This is the first instance in which ASU stayed in back-to-back-to-back Top-25's. Inside Lacrosse/IWCLA slot the Sun Devils at No. 23 in their latest polls, matching the highest spot ever occupied by the program. ASU is also receiving votes and on the cusp of cracking the most recent U.S. Lacrosse Magazine Top-20.
Head Coach Tim McCormack has challenged his team with an extremely difficult schedule and it has paid off, as the Sun Devils are looked upon favorably in two key metrics. Arizona State has the No. 10-rated strength of schedule having played eight Top-25 teams through 15 games. Because of their success in those game, Arizona State has a RPI of 27, which has climbed dramatically over the past few weeks.
