Nothing really unexpected here. Just about everyone expected UMBC and Hartford to be the class of the league, and through non-conference play, it’s been exactly as planned. UMBC doesn’t appear to be anything like a one-hit wonder, with wins over Patriot League sides Navy and Loyola (MD) on their record. Hartford’s only defeat is to regional frontrunners Fairfield, though they should theoretically be higher if not for some poor draws with Siena and Wagner. The rest of the league is mostly a muddle, though with nobody close to falling out of the RPI Top 300, you’d have to consider that a mild success. The league’s biggest disappointment at the moment is probably Vermont, who’s now winless in seven after winning their first two games this season.
