Navy football coach Ken Niumatalolo reminded his players after a practice this week that they are not like other college football teams that can simply show up and win on sheer talent alone. "We're not like Alabama or LSU," he said. As Navy (3-2) heads to Toledo (3-3) Saturday after one of its more one-sided losses in Niumatalolo's six years as head coach, the Midshipmen need to resemble the team that beat Indiana and Delaware to start the 2013 season, as well as the one that dominated academy rival Air Force in the second half.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The changing face of the Atlantic Coast Conference was on display again Wednesday during the league's media day for men's basketball. As has been the case at times during Mark Turgeon's first two seasons in College Park, the Terps were a little overmatched. Outnumbered three to one with newcomers Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame in attendance at a downtown hotel, Turgeon faced the same kind of questions that football coach Randy Edsall experienced in Greensboro in July about Maryland leaving for the Big Ten after this season.

Sophomore Tsubasa Endoh scored one goal and added two assists as the No. 13 Maryland men's soccer team defeated Duke, 3-1, in front of a Ludwig Field record crowd of 8,397 Friday night in College Park. The Terps (1-1-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) fell behind early for the third time this season, but fought back with three second-half scores from Endoh, Helge Leikvang and Patrick Mullins to overcome the Blue Devils (1-1-1, 0-1 ACC). The Terps controlled the early going.

Et cetera Duke extends John Danowski's contract through 2018 The contract of Duke men's lacrosse coach John Danowski has been extended through the 2018 season. Last month, Danowski guided the Blue Devils to the 2013 NCAA championship with a 16-10 victory over Syracuse in the title game. In seven seasons at Duke, Danowski has guided the Blue Devils to a 111-31 (.782) record with two NCAA titles, six Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championships and four ACC tournament crowns.

One might think that seventh-seeded Duke's 16-10 rout of top-seeded Syracuse in last week's NCAA tournament final at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia would not sit well with the Blue Devils' Atlantic Coast Conference rivals - especially a Maryland squad that had lodged a 16-7 thrashing that was Duke's worst loss since May 23, 2009 when the team was manhandled, 17-7, by Syracuse in the Final Four that year. But Terps coach John Tillman said he harbors no ill will towards the Blue Devils for capturing their second national crown in four seasons.

Syracuse owns a 6-3 advantage in this series, but the teams have split the past four meetings since 2009. Duke has won the past two contests - both occurring last season, including a 12-9 victory in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The seventh-seeded Blue Devils (15-5) have averaged 13.3 goals in the postseason, including 16 in a two-goal win against Cornell in Saturday's semifinal. Sophomore goalkeeper Kyle Turri recorded a career-best 16 saves in that victory over the Big Red. The top-seeded Orange (16-3)

The start was memorable - for all the wrong reasons - but the ending figures to be a lasting memory for the Duke men's lacrosse team. The seventh-seeded Blue Devils roared back from a 5-0 deficit and scored 11 of the second half's 15 goals to knock off top-seeded Syracuse, 16-10, in the NCAA tournament final Monday at Lincoln Financial Field. An announced attendance of 28,224 - the smallest crowd to watch a title game since 2002 - saw the Blue Devils (16-5) improve to 2-1 in championship finals and prevent the vaunted Orange from extending their Division I-leading total of national crowns to 11. (The NCAA does not recognize the 1990 title won by Syracuse after the team was cited for using an ineligible player.)

When almost everyone else thought their season was over in early March, Duke's lacrosse players were not too concerned. A losing record in March? Ho hum, no big deal. A blowout loss to conference rival Maryland? No sweat, there were still two months left in the season. What appeared to be disaster has become routine in Durham, N.C., after Duke completed its improbable run to the NCAA Division I championship Monday by defeating top-seeded Syracuse, 16-10. Jordan Wolf had four goals and fellow attackmen Josh Offit and Josh Dionne each had three to lead Duke (16-5)

To hear John Danowski explain it, he had no idea what he was getting in Brendan Fowler. In fact, the Duke coach had not met Fowler until August of his freshman year. That is because Fowler had not contacted the Blue Devils coaching staff during the recruiting process. The faceoff specialist had simply applied and been accepted to the university on his own, and Danowski confirmed Fowler's matriculation only when he had contacted the coach of Chaminade (N.Y.) High School - Fowler's alma mater - in May of the athlete's senior year.

Duke is less than 24 hours away from tangling with top-seeded Syracuse in Monday's NCAA tournament final. But it is one 60-minute session that concerns the seventh-seeded Blue Devils. Duke (15-5) powered past Cornell, 16-14, in Saturday's semifinal, but the team suffered a lapse in the fourth quarter. The Big Red outscored the Blue Devils, 7-2, in that frame, and Duke needed an empty-net goal by junior attackman Jordan Wolf with 39 seconds left to seal the victory. On Saturday night, the Blue Devils coaching staff reviewed film of that game and when an 11 p.m. meeting with the players came around, the film happened to begin with the fourth quarter and the players and coaches watched with equal amounts of dismay and relief.
