Even after its first loss of the season, Virginia still stands out as one of the best teams in the country this season.
The ACC side dropped its first game of the season on Friday night, but several players have propelled the team to a stellar campaign so far.
One of them is midfielder Joe Bell, a steady, calming presence on the ball and on the field for the Cavaliers. The New Zealand youth international sits atop the Midseason Top 100 Upperclassmen Players to Watch list.
Several other players emerged and burst up the list in this update. That includes SMU senior Garrett McLaughlin, back to his best after an injury-plagued 2018 campaign. James Madison midfielder Manuel Ferriol is a player of the year contender for the CAA side, while UCLA forward Milan Iloski is the nation's leading scorer.
