Bryant's men's lacrosse team is one step closer to winning the Northeast Conference's first automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament after knocking off Sacred Heart, 11-9, on Thursday in Providence, R.I. For the Bulldogs, one of the more impressive turnarounds is nearly complete after the preseason NEC favorite started 0-7, losing six of those games by one or two goals, including two near misses vs. likely tournament teams Bucknell and Albany....

A four-year long rebuilding project by the U.S. men's national team culminated Saturday in a 12-10 victory over Canada -- the team that dethroned it in 2006 -- in the Federation of International Lacrosse world championship (FIL) World Championship final before an announced 4,651. "We dreamed of this. This was our destiny," Team USA coach Mike Pressler said. "The script was written. We just had to go out there and prove it." Team USA's seventh world title did not come easily.

Maryland Del. Jon Cardin , who along with Del. Dana Stein introduced a bill Friday that would mandate protective headgear for girls youth lacrosse programs, said the purpose of the bill is to start a conversation about player safety in girls lacrosse. "The idea is to start a serious conversation about the safety and protection of student and youth athletes," Cardin said. "This will be high up on the agenda of discussion of how to make sure we're doing everything we can to keep student athletes safe.

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.

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.

I love watching Duke play lacrosse. I love the great passes the Blue Devils thread through defenses that lead to goals. I appreciate the speed and the synchronization of their offense. There isn't a better-shooting team in the country when it comes to placement. But I can't root for them to win a national title. A year ago, it was different because I thought the Duke players, and the sport itself, had become victims of the witch hunt in Durham, N.C., in 2006. But there is no more sympathy and compassion for the Blue Devils this time around.

Collin Finnerty, one of three former Duke lacrosse players falsely accused last year of raping an exotic dancer at a team party, could end up in a Loyola College uniform. Sources at Loyola confirmed that the school is pursuing Finnerty and could receive a commitment soon from the 6-feet-3, 175-pound attackman out of Chaminade High School in Garden City, N.Y. All charges against Finnerty and ex-Duke players David Evans and Reade Seligmann were dropped last month. The incident led to the cancellation of Duke's 2006 season after eight games, and to the resignation of 16-year coach Mike Pressler, who is now coaching at Division II Bryant University in Smithfield, R.I. Finnerty, who has two years of eligibility remaining, appeared in five games last year and had two goals and one assist.

Hofstra men's lacrosse coach John Danowski is among a group of potential replacements for Duke coach Mike Pressler, who resigned after 16 seasons with the Blue Devils on April 5, the day Duke's season was canceled after a team party during which an exotic dancer allegedly was raped by three players. Newsday reported Duke has been granted permission to interview Danowski, whose son, Matt, is heading into his senior year at Duke and is one of the nation's top attackmen. Danowski recently completed his 21st season at Hofstra with his best year.

Duke sophomore attackman Zack Greer, who led the nation in scoring with 57 goals a year ago, has contacted the University of Delaware and Penn State to express an interest in possibly transferring to either school. Delaware coach Bob Shillinglaw and Penn State coach Glenn Thiel confirmed that Greer has inquired about attending their schools. In light of an investigation into sexual assault allegations against team members stemming from an off-campus party March 13 at a house rented by three of the team's captains, the Duke athletic department has given current players and incoming recruits the option of being released from their commitments.
