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.

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.

Midfielder Deemer Class (Loyola High) scored six times, and three other Blue Devils had four or more goals as No. 4 Duke rushed past the visiting No. 9 Orange, 21-7. After Syracuse (4-3, 0-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) went up, 2-1, in the first quarter, the Blue Devils (8-2, 2-1) started a 10-0 run that included hat tricks by Class and midfielder Myles Jones, who finished with five goals. The Orange, led by attackman Randy Staats' two goals, didn't score again until 7:16 remained in the half, and Duke answered each Syracuse goal with one or more of its own.

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.

It would be understandable if No. 6 Duke still feels the sting of Saturday's 10-6 loss to No. 1 Maryland and tries to channel that anger into Sunday's game against No. 5 Loyola at 6 p.m. Sunday at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. But as far as coach Charley Toomey is concerned, the Greyhounds (4-1) are concentrating on the skills, not the emotions, of the Blue Devils (4-1). “I'm expecting a very talented Duke team coming to Ridley,” Toomey said Thursday. “We certainly don't worry about Duke of the past, or else we would've been worried last year about playing a 2-4 Duke team.

Maryland's defense, considered in the preseason to be the team's strength after the graduation of four starters on offense, is living up to the billing. The No. 3 Terps held Duke to season lows in goals and assists and a season-worst scoring drought of 26 minutes, 26 seconds in Saturday's 10-6 victory over the No. 1 Blue Devils at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Maryland's goals-allowed-per-game rose from 4.7 to 5.3, but that was bound to happen unless the Terps (4-0 overall and 2-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference)

In Maryland's 88-year history playing lacrosse, the Terps and Duke have clashed 81 times, which ranks fourth behind the program's rivalry with Johns Hopkins (103 meetings), Virginia (90) and Navy (87). Maryland has won 61 of those games and seven of the last nine contests. The No. 1 Blue Devils (4-0), who captured last year's national championship for the second time in four seasons, have picked up where they left off. The team has outscored its opponents, 53-32, but has not played on the road yet this season.

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland men's lacrosse team needed some big performances from its veteran leaders, and senior midfielder Mike Chanenchuk, senior goalkeeper Niko Amato and junior Goran Murray were happy to oblige. Chanenchuk tied a career high with five goals and also had an assist, Murray held Duke's leading scorer Jordan Wolf in check, and Amato made a game-high 17 saves to propel the No. 3 Terps to a 10-6 victory over the reigning national champion and top-ranked Blue Devils at Byrd Stadium on Saturday.

John Danowski coaches a Duke men's lacrosse program that captured last year's national championship, is 4-0, and is the top-ranked team in the country. None of that prevented him from voting for Maryland - fresh off a dismantling of 2013 runner-up Syracuse on Saturday - as his No. 1 team. "I just think they're playing great, and they've been terrific," said Danowski, who participates in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's coaches poll. The Terps ' 16-8 victory over the Orange on the road is the most significant outcome in the first month of the 2014 season.

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.

Reigning national champion Duke made a break from tradition - in a positive way. Sunday's 14-6 victory over Stony Brook guaranteed that the top-ranked Blue Devils will finish February with a 4-0 record. It's the first time since 2008 that the program did not suffer a loss in the first month of the season. But if coach John Danowski is supposed to be doing cartwheels over the achievement, he sounded remarkably composed from his campus office on Tuesday morning. “It's February, and it's February lacrosse,” Danowski said by phone as he prepares Duke for an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown with No. 3 Maryland at Byrd Stadium on Saturday at noon.
