The trick might be too great even for Duke coach John Danowski to pull off this season. The Blue Devils (3-4) are notorious for being slow starters and rallying at the end of the season to participate in the NCAA tournament, but that might not happen this year. Even with Duke's 9-8 upset win over No. 4 Loyola on Friday, the hole might still be too deep. Three of their four losses have been at home. Before Friday night, the Blue Devils were allowing 11.5 goals per game and they still have North Carolina, Virginia and Georgetown on the schedule.

DURHAM, N.C. - Loyola may have awakened a sleeping giant in lacrosse Friday night. Unranked Duke exploded for five fourth-quarter goals and held on to beat No. 4 Loyola, 9-8, at Koskinen Stadium. Duke (3-4) broke the game's final tie with two goals in a 55-second burst from Josh Offit and Christian Walsh to go up 8-6 with 8:45 remaining. Although Loyola (4-2) twice cut the deficit to one, on goals by Pat Laconi and Justin Ward, the latter coming with 1:13 left, the Greyhounds couldn't get the equalizer.

When Loyola and Duke met last year, the Blue Devils were the top 10 visitor paying a visit to the top 20 Greyhounds. Times have changed as No. 4 Loyola will meet an unranked Duke squad Friday night in Durham, N.C. The Blue Devils have limped their way to a 2-4 record, dropping their last two contests to No. 14 Penn on Feb. 22 and No. 1 Maryland last Saturday. Still, Greyhounds coach Charley Toomey has no intentions of overlooking a Duke program that has been to the last six Final Fours.

The eighth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team had been eagerly anticipating Sunday's rematch against No. 5 Duke for the past two weeks since losing badly to its most bitter rival. This time the game would be at Comcast Center, and the Terps would not have to contend with Chelsea Gray, the Blue Devils' best player who is out indefinitely with a knee injury. Then what was supposed to be an afternoon of redemption quickly turned into another lopsided result, 75-59, with Maryland's top two players limited to pedestrian performances and the Terps missing 15 of 18 3-pointers in their third loss in four games to Duke.

No. 4 Duke (4-0) at No. 2 Maryland (2-0) Sunday, 1 p.m. Comment: After scoring the biggest upset of the young season over Syracuse, the Terps dive into Atlantic Coast Conference competition with one of their toughest rivals. The defending conference champion Terps lead the series 14-9 after splitting with Duke last season, falling 10-9 in February but easily avenging that, 12-3, in the ACC tournament. The Blue Devils have won their first four games by an average of 11.5 goals, including 17-9 over ACC rival Virginia Tech, but Maryland is their first ranked opponent.

For a precious few moments - as Maryland students rushed the floor and enveloped the players after a rare and sorely needed victory over No. 2 Duke - the Terps, their fans and beleaguered coach could embrace the occasion and forget about the unfulfilled expectations that preceded it. In the coming weeks, bracketologists will assess what the 83-81 victory might mean for Maryland's chances of making the NCAA tournament. But for now, the Terps (18-7, 6-6 Atlantic Coast Conference)

From Maryland's perspective, the basketball rivalry with Duke was born in the late 1990s when Gary Williams brought the Terps from the bottom of the ACC to the top. During the 2000-01 season - when the teams met four times, including in the ACC tournament and at the Final Four - it was considered the most heated college rivalry in the country. From Duke's perspective, the rivalry between the Blue Devils and Maryland has been downplayed - if not completely dismissed. According to their fans, who still chant "Not our rivals...

No. 10 Denver's season got off to a fine start as the Pioneers benefited from a 9-0 run spanning the third and fourth quarters to defeat No. 6 Duke, 14-12, in Durham, N.C., on Saturday. The victory would seem to be a significant boost for a Denver squad that graduated its top two attackmen in Mark Matthews (47 goals and 17 assists in 2012) and Alex Demopoulos (20, 27). But prior to Saturday's contest, Pioneers coach Bill Tierney was uncertain what value a game on Feb. 9 would have for either side as the season unfolds.

Thursday's news that defenseman Casey Carroll will not play this season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee is somewhat of a blow to the national title aspirations of Duke. Carroll, a redshirt senior who served five years as an Army Ranger after playing for the Blue Devils from 2004-07, was expected to fortify a unit that had graduated starter Michael Manley after last season. But Duke has a number of candidates who can immediately step in, including junior Luke Duprey, senior Bill Conners and freshman Jamie Ikeda.
