NCAA men's soccer rankings: Cardinal rule

By Steve Goff

Six days until the 48-team NCAA men's tournament is unveiled, and the Louisville Cardinals remain atop the National Soccer Coaches Association of America rankings. The program was founded in 1984, and until 2007, they had never advanced to the NCAA tournament. Last year, the Cardinals were eliminated in the first round by Indiana. Their coach, Ken Lolla, arrived four years ago from No. 2 Akron, which he guided for 13 seasons. The Cardinals will make an appearance at Red Bull Arena later this week for the final stages of the Big East tournament.

1. Louisville (19 first-place votes) 15-0-2; 2. Akron (4) 16-1-1; 3. Maryland 14-2-1; 4. North Carolina 14-2-1; 5. Southern Methodist 15-1-0; 6. Butler 15-0-2; 7. Connecticut 12-2-4; 8. California 11-2-3; 9. UCLA 13-4-1; 10. UC Irvine 14-2-3; 11. Princeton 12-3-1; 12. Creighton 12-4-1; 13. Monmouth 12-1-4; 14. Brown 11-2-3; 15. Charlotte 13-5-0; 16. William & Mary 13-3-2; 17. Notre Dame 10-4-4; 18. Pennsylvania 12-4-0; 19. Duke 9-4-4; 20. Virginia 10-4-3; 21. Boston College 9-3-5; 22. UC Santa Barbara 11-4-3; 23. Florida Gulf Coast 13-3-2; 24. Central Florida 11-3-3; 25.
