Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie sees Jasmine Thomas as someone who is never satisfied. Thanks to the junior guard, the Blue Devils now stand a win away from their first Final Four since 2006. Thomas matched her career-high with 29 points and sprinkled her stat line with a little bit of everything, and second-seeded Duke ended No. 11 seed San Diego State's surprising NCAA tournament run with a 66-58 victory Saturday to reach the regional final. "She's just a very hungry player, someone who loves to get out there and dictate and on both sides of the ball," McCallie said.

Known for some of the most prolific offenses in NCAA history, Duke is no slouch on defense either. For the seventh time in the past eight years, the defense ended a season by giving up an average of less than 10 goals. Some of the credit goes to volunteer assistant coach Ben DeLuca. The former Cornell head coach, who was dismissed from the Big Red in November, replaced former Maryland defenseman Joe Cinosky, who became the defensive coordinator at Mount St. Mary's, and joined the program in February to help defensive coordinator Ron Caputo.

So many of the architects of the longstanding Maryland-Duke rivalry were in attendance Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. There was former Terrapins coach Lefty Driesell and former Duke player J.J. Redick, a Maryland nemesis. There was current Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, who was celebrating his 1,000th game at Duke and his 63rd birthday. And there was Maryland coach Gary Williams, whose Terrapins were unable to use Saturday's game to revive the rivalry, which has turned one-sided the past few seasons.

Reigning national champion Duke owns a 9-6 advantage in the all-time series, and the Blue Devils scored a 15-7 victory on April 5 to snap a four-game losing streak to Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish are making their second appearance in an NCAA tournament final and their first since 2010, when they fell to the Blue Devils, 6-5, in overtime. Duke is 2-2 in title games and is making its third appearance since 2010. Sixth-seeded Notre Dame (12-5) has won six straight games, which began with a run to the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title in late April.

The national championship in Division I men's college lacrosse will rest on the shoulders of Duke goalies Mike Rock and Dan Wigrizer this weekend. If they play well, the fifth-seeded Blue Devils will win the title. If not, it will probably go to No. 1 Virginia, the Blue Devils' opponent in the semifinals Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium. Sorry to put such a burden on Wigrizer and Rock, but Duke (14-3) is playing at such a high level offensively, averaging nearly 18 goals in each of its last three games.

Like every other observer of the sex-race-class-legal-political-media drama unfolding at Duke University, we can't possibly yet know if any crimes were committed, or even who may turn out to be the true victims - if any - in this story. But this grotesque bonfire in Durham, N.C., is impossible not to watch, nonetheless. Take a big dose of privilege. (Who doesn't know by now that Duke, where the annual tab is about the same as the U.S. median household income, is among the most impossible-to-get-into schools?

MINNEAPOLIS - It has to be a rough morning for Maryland basketball fans. By now, you're late for work because you stayed up to watch the NCAA basketball championship game.

It's Coach K on "Good Morning, America." By the end of tonight, Duke likely will be featured again on ESPN Classic. Probably, the "Road to Glory" with three of the games against Maryland.

Massachusetts and Connecticut held the top two spots in the college basketball poll today, the second week in a row they were there. The big news, however, is who isn't in the Top 25.For the first time since December 1986, Duke is not among the ranks of the ranked. A run of 143 consecutive poll appearances came to an end when the Blue Devils (9-6) didn't get enough votes after dropping their fourth consecutive game, the last three without coach Mike Krzyzewski (back ailment) on the bench.

COLLEGE PARK -- Duke was breaking with tradition this season by rushing more than passing, but that should change Saturday when the Blue Devils meet Maryland at Wade Stadium in Durham, N.C."I wouldn't be surprised if they came out on their first four plays and try to hit a long one," said Mike Lacy, a Maryland cornerback. "I know they're going to test us."Almost every other team has, and Maryland (1-6) has flunked. Wake Forest was the latest team to toast Maryland's pass defense.Demon Deacons quarterback Keith West entered the Maryland game Saturday averaging 133.4 yards passing.

Henry Lobb stood up against the wall in the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium, fumbling through words while trying to catch his breath. For most of Monday afternoon, the Duke senior defenseman stood on the stadium field with his knees bent, long stick in hand while chasing around one player: Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh. Lobb zoned in on Kavanagh, who torched Maryland's top-ranked defense in the semifinals for seven points (five goals and two assists) to lead the No. 6 Notre Dame to Monday's national championship against No. 1 Duke.

Fifth-seeded Denver had faithfully stuck to a goalie rotation, but it was a change in the cage that helped top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke emerge with a 15-12 win in an NCAA tournament semifinal at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday. After sophomore Luke Aaron allowed a goal to sophomore attackman Wesley Berg that allowed the Pioneers to close the gap to 11-10 just 74 seconds into the fourth quarter, the Blue Devils countered by pulling Aaron for junior Kyle Turri.

Notre Dame is a battle-tested team, and most importantly, the Fighting Irish has averaged 12 goals per game in its recent six-game winning streak. Ranked No. 11 in scoring offense and No. 24 in scoring defense, Notre Dame is a different team than the one that lost, 15-7, to Duke in early April. The Atlantic Coast Conference champions have terrific depth. The Fighting Irish is built for the Memorial Day men's lacrosse championship, and it already experienced the quick turnaround while winning the ACC tournament last month.

College Park -- In cartoons, a little devil appears on either shoulder of our beloved and beleaguered scamp, presenting the good and the bad. At Comcast Center, we see Devils swirling all around. There are no options here. It's bad, bad and more bad. The Duke Blue Devils have Maryland's number. Right now that number stands at 13. That's how many consecutive losses the Terps women's basketball team has suffered to Duke after yesterday's 86-68 defeat on its home court. The stage was set yesterday afternoon for something memorable, a cornerstone moment for a program poised for something great.

In its run to the NCAA tournament final this season, the Notre Dame men's lacrosse team has beaten every Atlantic Coast Conference team except one. And the sixth-seeded Fighting Irish (12-5) will get a shot at redemption when it faces top-seeded Duke (16-3) on Monday at 1 p.m. at M&T Bank Stadium. "I think, playing them earlier in the season, we can kind of find out what we did well, and what we didn't do well," Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh said Sunday. "I think seeing a team and being prepared and seeing what they have already done to us in the first game is going to help us tomorrow.

"A couple more nights in the greatest city in the world. " Those were the words shouted by a Duke player in an M&T Bank Stadium tunnel moments after the Blue Devils' 15-12 victory over Denver in Saturday's NCAA men's lacrosse Final Four matchup. Powered by a resurgent fourth quarter, in which Duke scored three of the game's final four goals, the top-seeded Blue Devils will be able to keep their hotel reservations in Baltimore. They'll spend their second consecutive Memorial Day playing in the national championship, in which they'll face No. 6 seed Notre Dame in a rematch of the 2010 title game.
