Duke lacrosse coach John Danowski has been down this road before, but not with so many bumps. When his Blue Devils won the national championship in 2010, the Atlantic Coast Conference was the toughest in the country even though it was just a four-team league with Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. This year, the conference will be tougher with the additions of Notre Dame and Syracuse. Add Denver and Loyola to the schedule, and it makes it even harder for the Blue Devils to defend their championship of a year ago. Danowski has won two national titles in his seven years at the school.

Duke fans get enjoyment from chanting that Maryland is "not our rival" and, based on some of Mike Krzyzewski's comments about the Terps' move to the Big Ten, it doesn't seem like the Blue Devils intend on getting too nostalgic about the upcoming end of the teams' feisty series. But when Duke and Maryland play their final regular season game as ACC foes on Feb. 15, the Blue Devils will be unveiling a special new look. That game will be Duke's first wearing new Nike Hyper Elite Dominance uniforms that were revealed Thursday . Other teams that will be sporting the old-meets-new retro look include  Michigan State, Ohio State, Kentucky, Syracuse, Oregon and North Carolina.

Colleges No. 1 Terps lose, 3-2, to No. 5 Duke in NCAA field hockey semifinal The top-ranked Maryland field hockey team fell behind early and couldn't convert shots in the second half as it fell to No. 5 Duke, 3-2, in the NCAA semifinals Friday at Old Dominion in Norfolk, Va. The Terps (22-2) trailed 3-2 at the break and despite outshooting the Blue Devils 11-2 in the second half, they couldn't convert. Lauren Blazing made eight saves for Duke (17-6) in the second half.

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.

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.)
