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.

Cleveland Browns rookie running back Terrance West stood at one end of the field at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday, watching the first half of his former school's season opener against Central Connecticut State. The Tigers probably wish West had been on the field, and not in the stands, for their 31-27 loss to a Blue Devils team that went 4-8 in 2013. A mostly gold-clad crowd of an announced 8,058 was treated to an uneven performance by an offense and defense just seven months removed from playing in the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game.

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.

For only the second time since Rob Ambrose became Towson's coach, the Tigers will open the season with a game at home, welcoming Central Connecticut State to Johnny Unitas Stadium on Saturday at 6 p.m. The only other time in that span the Tigers played host to a season opener was in 2011, when they routed Morgan State, 42-3. Although Towson is just two games above .500 at home (15-13) under Ambrose, the program is 13-5 at Johnny Unitas Stadium in the past three years, and Ambrose said the team's recent success has had a noticeable impact in the stands.

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. And while you're sipping coffee, you keep switching the TV channel. Everywhere you look, there is a Blue Devil. Click. It's Shane Battier and Jason Williams on ESPN. Click. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Asked if the Duke men's lacrosse team's recent run to three national championships in five years could be considered a dynasty, coach John Danowski preferred a different D-word. “It's Duke,” Danowski said after the Blue Devils held off Atlantic Coast Conference rival Notre Dame to emerge with an 11-9 victory in Monday's NCAA national championship before an announced 25,587 at M&T Bank Stadium. “We have this opportunity. … For the kids who come here, it's hard.

Duke sophomore midfielder Deemer Class and senior midfielder Christian Walsh grew up playing with fiddle sticks in the parking lots of M&T Bank Stadium prior to attending Championship Weekend as spectators. The Blue Devils practiced Sunday night at Boys' Latin, Walsh's alma mater, to prepare itself for Monday's title game matchup with Notre Dame. A day later, the duo completed their homecoming trip to Baltimore, helping propel top-seeded Duke to its second consecutive national championship.

COLLEGE PARK -- Duke's Aaron Shaw knew his number would be called. What the senior tight end didn't know was how often.L "I didn't know I was going to have a career day," Shaw said.He did. In Duke's 17-13 victory over Maryland yesterday, Shaw caught 11 passes for 149 yards. His total production in Duke's first five games: 13 for 131."He's a heady player," quarterback David Brown said. "He wants the ball more than anyone else."It wasn't that simple. There was more to it than that. Duke noticed last week that some Maryland defensive coverages might leave Shaw with an open lane to catch the ball.

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.
