ATLANTA — By nearly a unanimous vote, Virginia Tech has remained in the top spot of the New Balance MCLA Division I Weekly Coaches Poll.

The Hokies (12-1), who were idle this week in preparation for the ALC semifinals against Pittsburgh (9-5), grabbed 25 of the 26 first-place votes cast this week. Virginia Tech is comfortably ahead of No. 2 Concordia-Irvine.

The Eagles commence the SLC tournament this weekend when they square off with No. 15 Grand Canyon (6-5) in one semifinal.

Fresh off its RMLC championship, Brigham Young (15-2) sits in the third spot. South Carolina (13-3), which rolled to the SELC title, jumped five spots this week to sit in the fourth chair while grabbing the remaining first-place vote.

No. 5 Liberty (10-3) starts the ALC tourney with a semifinal date against No. 7 Clemson.
