The Atlantic Coast Conference may boast the top two teams in the nation right now, but the stacked Big East is starting to dominate the top of the SBI Top 25.

Maryland and North Carolina remain as No. 1 and No. 2 in the newest rankings heading into their match-up tonight, but four Big East teams round out the top seven spots, while surging Louisville has helped give the conference a nation-best five teams in the Top 25.

Saint Louis continued their climb up the rankings, having won six of seven matches, with their lone loss coming against unbeaten Xavier.

And the hottest team in the nation? Akron continues to hold that distinction, having posted seven straight victories and eight straight shutouts. Coastal Carolina is also on a roll, having rattled off an eight-match winning streak, led by top pro prospects Pedro Ribeiro and Ashton Bennett.

Here is the latest SBI Top 25:

    I would have to say that SLU uniform is by far one of the most ugliest ones I’ve seen. I can see going with either the hoops or sash but not both.
