Duke won its first NCAA men's lacrosse championship in dramatic fashion, defeating Notre Dame 6-5 Monday on a goal by C.J. Costabile with five seconds gone in sudden-death overtime in Baltimore. Costabile won the faceoff from Trever Sipperly and sprinted downfield before beating goaltender Scott Rodgers with a shot from directly in front of the net. Duke (16-4) twice before advanced to the title game — and lost by one goal both times. This time, however, the Blue Devils walked away with the championship trophy by defeating the unseeded Irish (10-7)

Through much of Sunday afternoon at Cameron Indoor Stadium, a pocket of red-wearing Maryland women's basketball fans cheered and waved foam fingers. But they sat quietly in the waning moments of the Terrapins' 71-59 loss to No. 8 Duke. "The first 36 minutes we were there," Maryland coach Brenda Frese said. "The last four minutes, you saw veterans for Duke step up and provide great leadership." Despite a gutsy effort, the Terrapins (18-9, 5-7) faded down the stretch as the Blue Devils (23-4, 11-1)

Before the season, choices look so clear. Predictions for MVP, Final Four and NCAA champion appear logical and sound. A few weeks into the season, the only question is this: What were people thinking? As the nonconference slates come to an end and we head into the meat of the season, let's reflect on who has proved us right, who has proved us wrong and who has confused the heck out of us. Told ya so: Duke was a unanimous — and deserving — preseason No. 1 in the Associated Press poll.

As Maryland prepares to move to the Big Ten this summer, games against the likes of Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers - in addition to its traditional series with Johns Hopkins - are tantalizing matchups on the upcoming schedule. But who the Terps can retain from their days in the Atlantic Coast Conference could be just as compelling. For decades, the program battled with Duke, North Carolina and Virginia. And when Notre Dame and Syracuse joined the league for the 2014 campaign, the contests were must-see opportunities for fans.

Bonaventure von P. "Duke" Wachter, a retired State Highway Administration civil engineer who worked on numerous highway projects throughout Maryland, died May 23 of cancer at Coastal Hospice at the Lake in Salisbury.

Known for some of the most prolific offenses in NCAA history, Duke is no slouch on defense either. For the seventh time in the past eight years, the defense ended a season by giving up an average of less than 10 goals. Some of the credit goes to volunteer assistant coach Ben DeLuca. The former Cornell head coach, who was dismissed from the Big Red in November, replaced former Maryland defenseman Joe Cinosky, who became the defensive coordinator at Mount St. Mary's, and joined the program in February to help defensive coordinator Ron Caputo.

Henry Lobb stood up against the wall in the tunnel at M&T Bank Stadium, fumbling through words while trying to catch his breath. For most of Monday afternoon, the Duke senior defenseman stood on the stadium field with his knees bent, long stick in hand while chasing around one player: Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh. Lobb zoned in on Kavanagh, who torched Maryland's top-ranked defense in the semifinals for seven points (five goals and two assists) to lead the No. 6 Notre Dame to Monday's national championship against No. 1 Duke.

There isn't one way to establish a legacy. You have win-and-run nomads like Larry Brown, who can't sit still in a chair for 10 minutes. Yet, Brown has won titles in the NCAA and the NBA. You have guys like Don Nelson, who have never won it all but have made enough horrible teams competitive to compile more coach-of-the-year trophies than Phil Jackson. Or you can be Jackson, align yourself with four or five of the all-time greatest players and Zen your way to 10 championships.
