Between 1983 and 2004, Syracuse advanced to the NCAA tournament semifinals every year, a remarkable accomplishment that may never be matched again. What makes Duke's seven consecutive appearances in the Final Four nearly as impressive is that the Blue Devils have achieved that in a four-round tournament, which was expanded from 12 to 16 teams for the 2003 season. But seventh-seeded Duke (14-5), which will tangle with Cornell (14-3) in the first of two national semifinals this Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, is just 2-4 in the Final Four, advancing to the title game in 2007 (losing to Johns Hopkins)

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. It's hard academically.

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.)

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.

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 beginning of the end came early for Johns Hopkins. Very early. After falling behind 6-0 midway in the first quarter, Johns Hopkins tried to rally several times but couldn't withstand the constant offensive pressure as top-seeded Duke routed the unseeded Blue Jays, 19-11, at Delaware Stadium in an NCAA quarterfinal Sunday afternoon. The win by Duke appears to be part of their annual march to the Final Four - the Blue Devils will make their eighth straight semifinal appearance next weekend at M&T Bank Stadium.

Johns Hopkins has won 12 of 17 games against Duke, but the two sides haven't met since May 15, 2010, when the Blue Devils coasted to an 18-5 rout in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Blue Jays own a slight 3-2 record over Duke in the NCAA tournament. Johns Hopkins (11-4) has won six of its last seven contests, which includes a 14-8 victory over eighth-seeded Virginia in Sunday's first-round game. The program is making its third quarterfinal appearance in the last four years but hasn't been to the Final Four since 2008.

Deemer Class (Loyola) had a career-high three goals, and Luke Aaron came off the bench to record nine saves over the final three periods as No. 1 Duke beat No. 4 Denver, 14-10, Saturday. The host Blue Devils improved to 2-0 and the Pioneers fell to 1-1. "I think after the first few saves [I started getting comfortable]," Aaron said. "The team really rallied behind me, and I felt at ease. The defensemen let me see the shots and they supported me. It was a big team effort today.

Denver coach Bill Tierney has a tongue-in-cheek answer when asked about the team's subpar showing on faceoffs with top-seeded Duke and senior extraordinaire Brendan Fowler awaiting on Saturday. “We're going to prepare the exact same way we prepared for Rutgers, North Carolina and Drexel,” Tierney said Tuesday morning during a conference call before the semifinals at M&T Bank Stadium. “We're going to assume that we're going to lose every faceoff and then go from there.” Clearly, that's not how Tierney truly feels about the fifth-seeded Pioneers' faceoff unit, which has won just 47.3 percent (194-of-410)

There will be countless predictions and analysis leading up to the Division I men's lacrosse Final Four this weekend, but the only way Duke won't win a second consecutive championship is if another team can match up with the Blue Devils in faceoffs. The Blue Devils simply have too much firepower to lose. Duke beat Johns Hopkins, 19-11, in a quarterfinal game Sunday, and the two Blue Devils goalies contributed just four total saves. That's amazing, especially in the postseason.

Kevin Rice scored the game-winner with 2:05 left to play as No. 9 host Syracuse edged No. 5 Notre Dame, 11-10, on Saturday. The host Orange (5-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) got early separation, but the Fighting Irish (4-3, 2-1) rallied in the fourth quarter. Notre Dame fell behind 10-7 with 13:41 remaining in regulation but responded with three straight goals in less than three minutes. The score was tied at 10 with 6:29 left in the game. "For Notre Dame to come in here having the success they've had, especially their stingy defense, and we were able to put up double figures - that was big," Syracuse coach John Desko said.

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.
