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.

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)

The Blue Devils practiced Sunday night at Boys' Latin, Walsh's alma mater, to prepare itself for Monday's title game matchup with Notre Dame. A day later, the duo completed their homecoming trip to Baltimore, helping propel top-seeded Duke to its second consecutive national championship.

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)

Jordan Wolf is expected to return to practice Tuesday after suffering a hip injury in No. 9 Duke's 7-3 loss to No. 5 Notre Dame Saturday. The sophomore attackman left the game in the second half and did not return, but coach John Danowski said Tuesday morning that he is optimistic that Wolf will practice and be available for Friday night's contest against No. 15 Penn. “If he's at practice today, yeah, sure,” Danowski said of whether Wolf could play Friday. “We haven't practiced yet, so I don't know what's going to happen.

Duke's bid for an extra year of eligibility for men's lacrosse players isn't sitting well with Dom Starsia, the coach of Atlantic Coast Conference rival Virginia. The Sun reported yesterday that Duke is asking the NCAA to grant the additional year because the team's 2006 season was cut short by the university after rape allegations -- since discredited -- were lodged against three players. Starsia, whose Cavaliers won the 2006 men's title, said that Duke is, in effect, asking the NCAA to bail it out. "I've got some real problems with it. Does Duke University deserve this resolution of the problem, over issues that were kind of self-inflicted?"

No. 1 Duke (18-1) vs. No. 5 Johns Hopkins (10-5) Time -- 2:30 p.m. Site -- Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass. THREE THINGS TO WATCH Weathering the storm The Blue Devils have outscored opponents 145-56 in the first half. Johns Hopkins played Duke to a 4-4 tie in the second quarter April 5 before the Blue Devils cruised, 17-6. Whether the Blue Jays can slow Duke and keep the score in single digits might determine Johns Hopkins' fate. Focus on faceoffs Junior Sam Payton won 10 of 15 faceoffs to help the Blue Devils jump out early on the Blue Jays in their regular-season matchup, but Payton won only 12 of 23 faceoffs against Ohio State.

"A couple more nights in the greatest city in the world. " Those were the words shouted by a Duke player in an M&T Bank Stadium tunnel moments after the Blue Devils' 15-12 victory over Denver in Saturday's NCAA men's lacrosse Final Four matchup. Powered by a resurgent fourth quarter, in which Duke scored three of the game's final four goals, the top-seeded Blue Devils will be able to keep their hotel reservations in Baltimore. They'll spend their second consecutive Memorial Day playing in the national championship, in which they'll face No. 6 seed Notre Dame in a rematch of the 2010 title game.

Come Monday, Duke's Casey Carroll hopes to play the game he loves while saluting the sacrifices he and others have made for their country. When better than Memorial Day for a former Army Ranger to end his college lacrosse career in the NCAA championship game? "That [scenario] would be great for so many reasons - but, of course, it's one game at a time," said Carroll, 29, a starting defenseman for the top-seeded Blue Devils, who play No. 5 Denver in the Division I semifinals at 1 p.m. Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium.

Deemer Class was at M&T Bank Stadium in 2010 when Duke beat Notre Dame, 6-5, in overtime to capture the first men's lacrosse national title in school history. Now he'll have a chance to win his own championship at the stadium where he grew up watching the Ravens. While the prospect of a second consecutive title - and the program's third in five years - is exhilarating in itself, Class has extra motivation for Duke's 1 p.m. semifinal matchup against Denver on Saturday. He'll get to return to home and play in front of a large contingent of friends and family.

Johns Hopkins and Duke had a week to get ready for Sunday's NCAA quarterfinal matchup at Delaware Stadium. But for Duke midfielder Myles Jones and Hopkins long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino, whether they knew it or not, their preparation began seven years ago as freshman high schoolers on Long Island. Jones graduated from Walt Whitman High in Huntington Station, N.Y., while Pellegrino played less than 20 miles away at Connetquot. Pellegrino came out on top in three of their four prep matchups, but Jones got even Sunday in Newark.

Duke is less than 24 hours away from tangling with top-seeded Syracuse in Monday's NCAA tournament final. But it is one 60-minute session that concerns the seventh-seeded Blue Devils. Duke (15-5) powered past Cornell, 16-14, in Saturday's semifinal, but the team suffered a lapse in the fourth quarter. The Big Red outscored the Blue Devils, 7-2, in that frame, and Duke needed an empty-net goal by junior attackman Jordan Wolf with 39 seconds left to seal the victory. On Saturday night, the Blue Devils coaching staff reviewed film of that game and when an 11 p.m. meeting with the players came around, the film happened to begin with the fourth quarter and the players and coaches watched with equal amounts of dismay and relief.

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.

Reigning national champion Duke made a break from tradition - in a positive way. Sunday's 14-6 victory over Stony Brook guaranteed that the top-ranked Blue Devils will finish February with a 4-0 record. It's the first time since 2008 that the program did not suffer a loss in the first month of the season. But if coach John Danowski is supposed to be doing cartwheels over the achievement, he sounded remarkably composed from his campus office on Tuesday morning. “It's February, and it's February lacrosse,” Danowski said by phone as he prepares Duke for an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown with No. 3 Maryland at Byrd Stadium on Saturday at noon.
