As if anyone needed to be convinced, Duke senior attackman Matt Danowski proved once again Sunday that he is without peer in Division I men's lacrosse. Watching Danowski run circles around upset-minded North Carolina in a 19-11 rout in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals was the treat of the day at Navy. I remember at one point, while Danowski was igniting top-seeded Duke's furious comeback from an early 6-1 deficit, looking out at the crowd and thinking, if I didn't have this job and press pass that comes with it, I'd gladly fork over the dough for the ticket and the parking to watch this guy anytime, anywhere.

Here are a few tidbits from top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke's news conference at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday morning. -- Coach John Danowski announced that sophomore Luke Aaron would make his 18th start of the season against sixth-seeded Notre Dame (12-5) in Monday's title game. Although Aaron surrendered 10 goals and made just three saves in the Blue Devils' 15-12 win against fifth-seeded Denver in Saturday's semifinal before getting pulled for junior Kyle Turri (two goals allowed and four stops)

Twenty-two days ago, the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team strolled into the Carrier Dome and tore through Syracuse with a 17-goal outburst. The Blue Jays haven't felt well since. After yesterday's 11-9 loss to visiting, No. 4 Duke, before 4,802 chilly spectators at Homewood Field, seventh-ranked Hopkins still is searching for its next victory. Duke attackmen Zack Greer and Matt Danowski, perhaps the best one-two scoring punch in Division I, were the main culprits in another frustrating outing for the Blue Jays.

Fifth-seeded Denver has made no secret about its season-long philosophy of rotating goalkeepers Ryan LaPlante and Jamie Faus. Top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke may adopt a similar approach in Saturday's NCAA tournament semifinal against the Pioneers at M&T Bank Stadium. Sophomore Luke Aaron (9.82 goals-against average; .518 save percentage) is slated to make his 17th start of the season, but he looked shaky in the second half of Sunday's 19-11 rout of Johns Hopkins and was pulled in the third quarter in favor of junior Kyle Turri (8.63 goals-against average; .453 save percentage)

In the end, Duke had too much Matt Danowski and Zack Greer. The two senior attackmen combined for 20 points, and the Blue Devils put together a blistering third quarter to open up a tight game and easily defeat North Carolina, 19-11, yesterday in an NCAA Division I men's lacrosse tournament quarterfinal at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Danowski and Greer put on a show reminiscent of the days when midfielders Paul and Gary Gait were at Syracuse in the late 1980s and early 1990s. There were over-the-shoulder goals and elevator shots.

DURHAM, N.C. -- For a year, members of the Duke men's lacrosse team have been restrained in talking about their infamous party and their feelings toward the woman who said she was raped there. On the day after sexual assault and kidnapping charges were dismissed against three former teammates, some were willing, even eager, to open up a little more. On a cloudless day after their afternoon practice, several players sat on a bleacher and talked about their complicated emotions toward the accuser and District Attorney Michael B. Nifong - who apologized yesterday - and their regrets about holding the party in which two strippers were hired to perform.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Ninety-two seconds into the game, Johns Hopkins goalie Michael Gvozden made a one-on-one save against attackman Max Quinzani, one of Duke's best shooters. In the closing seconds, Gvozden came up big again, this time stopping a shot by attackman Matt Danowski, one of the top players in college lacrosse. It was like that all day for the Blue Devils. No. 5 seed Hopkins turned in a complete defensive effort in a 10-9 upset victory over No. 1 seed Duke yesterday and stunned an announced crowd of 48,224 at Gillette Stadium.

Two years ago, they formed the most potent two-headed monster in Division I men's lacrosse, and Duke attackmen Zack Greer and Matt Danowski are not letting up. After Saturday's 11-9 victory at Johns Hopkins - in which Greer leveled the Blue Jays with six goals and Danowski teamed with Greer on all four of his assists - Greer and Danowski reasserted themselves as the game's premier one-two punch. Greer (50 points) and Danowski (49) are just behind Virginia junior attackman Ben Rubeor, the nation's leader with 54 points.

Attackman Bobby Griebe hadn't played in a lacrosse game with major implications since May 2002 when he helped Boys' Latin win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title, but there was certainly no rust evident last night. Back in action after sitting out the spring as a redshirt at Towson University, Griebe scored four goals and added an assist as the United States opened the International Lacrosse Federation Under-19 World Championships with a 16-6 victory over Australia before 925 at Minnegan Field at Towson Stadium.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Despite the graduation of attackman Zach Howell, Duke's offense was considered to be in good hands with sophomore attackmen Jordan Wolf and Christian Walsh. Wolf has registered one goal and three assists in two contests before a hip injury forced him to leave the team's eventual 7-3 loss to No. 5 Notre Dame on Saturday. Walsh has scored twice thus far, but he was blanked by the Fighting Irish. Still, coach John Danowski -- who also starts sophomore Josh Dionne on attack -- said he's not stressing out over the Baltimore native and Boys' Latin graduate.

On Monday — the first day of the week of preparation for the Final Four for the Duke men's lacrosse team — coach John Danowski announced after dinner that he was buying tickets for the entire team to see the latest installment of Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise. Not many coaches whose team is the reigning national champion would open the week leading up to an NCAA tournament semifinal against Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium in such fashion, but Danowski is anything but usual as a lacrosse coach.

Duke coach John Danowski liked the warm and fuzzy feeling that surrounded his program after the Blue Devils won a national championship last May, but no one on his staff got a free membership to a nearby health club, and there weren't any pay raises. Maybe Danowski might get one now. In a supposed transition season because the Blue Devils lost nearly a third of last year's team to graduation, Duke (8-2) is ranked No. 4 after having won seven straight and is in position to knock off unbeaten and No. 1-ranked Syracuse (7-0)

Two days after Duke's toughest loss of 2007, the lacrosse team received a victory from the NCAA that will reverberate well into the 2008 season. The NCAA yesterday granted an extra year of eligibility to 33 lacrosse team members whose 2006 season was canceled in the wake of rape allegations against three players, allegations that ultimately resulted in dropped charges. "The events of last spring are unprecedented," Duke coach John Danowski said. "Now, the response and the reaction to everything from last spring is unprecedented.

It's nice to see Duke ranked No. 1 again in men's college lacrosse. It's great to see attackman Matt Danowski scoring goals, Zack Greer's magic stick-handling and defensemen Casey Carroll and Nick O'Hara running the field. Mike Pressler is no longer the Blue Devils' coach, but Duke has a classy replacement in John Danowski. This would be a perfect time for the Blue Devils to thumb their noses at all who pointed fingers or laughed at their program last season, but they won't. Danowski is too sophisticated for that.

After the winning goal hit the back of the net just five seconds into overtime, Duke coach John Danowski was walking up and down the sideline hugging everybody. An NCAA Division I men's lacrosse championship has been a long time coming for Danowski. First, there were his 21 years as coach at Hofstra and then the past four at Duke. The Duke era may have been the most painful because Danowski was supposed to win here. Now that he has, Danowski, 54, has proven that nice guys can finish first.
