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.

Let's get something straight. I'm not a big fan of new Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, but there was little question about his coaching ability after yesterday's heart-wrenching 34-31 loss to No. 1-ranked USC. Weis created a game plan that kept the ball away from the terrific Trojans offense for most of the afternoon, and the Fighting Irish - a double-digit underdog entering the game - came within a heartbeat of ending USC's 27-game winning streak in...

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.

In its run to the NCAA tournament final this season, the Notre Dame men's lacrosse team has beaten every Atlantic Coast Conference team except one. And the sixth-seeded Fighting Irish (12-5) will get a shot at redemption when it faces top-seeded Duke (16-3) on Monday at 1 p.m. at M&T Bank Stadium. "I think, playing them earlier in the season, we can kind of find out what we did well, and what we didn't do well," Notre Dame sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh said Sunday. "I think seeing a team and being prepared and seeing what they have already done to us in the first game is going to help us tomorrow.

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.

By virtue of having a higher seed, sixth-seeded Notre Dame was considered the home team in Saturday's NCAA tournament semifinal against seventh-seeded Maryland and wore its white jerseys at M&T Bank Stadium. But with the Terps playing about 45 minutes away from their campus in College Park, the stadium had a decided “Fear the Turtle” vibe to it, and the feeling was not lost on Fighting Irish coach Kevin Corrigan. “We were up at Hofstra last week [for the quarterfinals], and I think there were 37 people cheering for us in a sellout crowd of 13,000,” Corrigan quipped, referring to fans pulling for Albany. “I wanted to come to the press conference afterwards and say I apologize to all those people who wanted to see Albany here right now because it was clear that there weren't a lot of people rooting for us. We kind of just kept that mentality this week. Quite honestly, it's kind of funny.

Here are a few tidbits from sixth-seeded Notre Dame's news conference at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday morning. -- While top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke (16-3) deals with some instability in the cage, the Fighting Irish (12-5) have no such qualms with junior Conor Kelly. The goalkeeper has made 37 saves and surrendered just 24 goals in three postseason games and has rebounded from getting benched in the second game of the season. “You guys see this as a snapshot, and I see it as an evolution over the course of weeks and months, and we've seen Conor have some ups and downs this year, but there's a reason why he's back in the goal for us right now,” coach Kevin Corrigan said. “He was earning that on a daily basis.

CHESTER, PA. - Fourth-seeded Notre Dame can take all the guesswork out of its resume for the NCAA tournament by upsetting third-seeded Syracuse in Sunday's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament final at PPL Park. But coach Kevin Corrigan knows the Fighting Irish (7-5) did themselves a huge favor by edging top-seeded Maryland, 6-5, in Friday night's semifinal. “We had our backs to the wall a little bit,” Corrigan said. “I don't think if we lost this game, we're out of the tournament.

At 5 feet 8, 170 pounds, Notre Dame's Matt Kavanagh was one of the smallest players on the field Saturday in his team's semifinal matchup with No. 7 seed Maryland, which has the nation's top-ranked scoring defense. But the sophomore attackman's stats from the game showed just how big he can be. Kavanagh had a game-high five goals as well as two assists to drive the sixth-seeded Fighting Irish into the Memorial Day championship game against No. 1 Duke with an 11-6 win against the Terps . Heading into the game, Kavanagh had the most points by a Notre Dame player since 2001 and was the only player in program history to record 30 goals and 30 assists in a season.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. --This is what Maryland kept desperately hoping to defer - that moment when its memorable, overachieving season would crash to an end, and senior star Alyssa Thomas would walk off the court for the final time in her college career. The Terps made it all the way to the bright lights, pep rallies and glitz of the Final Four before encountering an undefeated Notre Dame team that stunned them with its rebounding in an 87-61 victory, sending the Fighting Irish (37-0) into Tuesday's national championship.
