Great middle class

Recent results in America East have thrown the Nos. 4 through 7 slots in America East up for grabs.

A week ago, Albany appeared to be a lock for the No. 4 spot and Hartford and UMaine would make up the 5-6 places. Not so fast.

Albany is now just a game ahead of UMaine and Hartford in the loss column (the Great Danes visit Orono Saturday) for fourth place while New Hampshire is two back in the loss column and breathing down the necks of the Black Bears and Hawks.

Last night's loss at Boston U. leaves UMaine tied with Hartford for No. 5, but the Hawks own the tiebreaker right now with their win in Orono.

Those four teams will fight to avoid a quarterfinal matchup with Stony Brook, Vermont or Boston U.

Remaining schedules:
Albany (7-6): at Black Bears, Vermont, at Binghamton.
Hartford (5-7): Binghamton, Black Bears, Stony Brook, at Boston U.
Black Bears (5-7): Albany, at Hartford, New Hampshire, at Stony Brook.
New Hampshire (4-8): at UMBC, at Boston U., at Black Bears, Binghamton.
