Well, color me shocked. After an extended period of ranting and questioning the preferential treatment that appeared to be bestowed on Randy Orton since his return from suspension, I never expected to see the Viper tap out - in a clean loss - to Alberto Del Rio. Orton had been built up and put over number-one contenders like it was going out of style, but tonight, he actually did a job and helped make Del Rio look like a legitimate main event...

Loyola Maryland announced Thursday that it will play at Maryland next season in a rematch of the 2012 national title game, giving the Greyhounds' schedule a needed boost in the absence of perennial rival Johns Hopkins. The Greyhounds and Terps will meet on Wednesday, April 8 at Byrd Stadium in College Park, with the game time to be announced later. "In a year that we are scrimmaging Johns Hopkins and not playing them during the regular season, it was important to us to add a strong RPI and strength-of-schedule nonconference game," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said via email.

After losing two months ago for the first time in his career, Seth Mitchell is set for a rematch against Johnathon Banks on Feb. 16 in Atlantic City, N.J., a fight that's a virtual must-win for the boxer from Brandywine in Prince George's County if he is to continue his pursuit of the unified heavyweight championship of the world. Banks-Mitchell II will take place at Boardwalk Hall, the site of their bout Nov.17, in which Banks knocked down his heavily favored opponent three times.

For proof of the expanding reach of lacrosse around the globe, look no further than the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships, which begin Thursday night in the Denver suburbs. A record 38 teams, representing nations from six continents, will take part in the quadrennial event over the next 10 days at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. That's an impressive number for an event that began with only four countries in 1967 and had just six as recently as 1994.

T he rematch of Maryland vs. Duke was always going to be big. Now it's a Hollywood blockbuster. Playing Wednesday at Comcast Center: "Maryland-Duke II: Revenge of the Red-Hot Turtles." I see Harrison Ford as the explosive Gary Williams. Diego Luna as the mercurial Greivis Vasquez. Fred Armisen from "Saturday Night Live" could play the evil Coach K and pick any five young guys to play the Blue Devils starters - at least that's how Terps Nation would cast it. Then grab your $12 tub of popcorn and trash-can sized Pepsi, sit back and enjoy.

Apparently it is possible to have too much success. At least that's the opinion of Vicente del Bosque, who has seen Spanish soccer achieve unprecedented levels of success in recent years. The national team has won the last two European Championships as well as the 2010 World Cup. On the club level, three Spanish teams — Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid — went down to the final weekend before deciding this season's La Liga winner. And all three teams reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League, with Real Madrid and Atletico meeting in last month's final.

"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.

UMBC's loss to No. 13 Albany may not have been a surprise, but the team's setback to Binghamton was. In that game, the Retrievers (7-6 overall and 3-2 in the America East) lost a 6-4 lead at halftime and were outscored 9-1 in the second half en route to a 13-7 loss. So who do they get in an America East tournament semifinal on Thursday at Stony Brook? Those same Bearcats (7-7, 4-1). UMBC coach Don Zimmerman acknowledged that the team was eager for a rematch with Binghamton, but he warned against revenge taking over preparation.

Homewood Field in Baltimore is one of the more tradition-rich sites for men's lacrosse, and more than one opponent challenging Johns Hopkins has felt slightly intimidated by the venue, the nine NCAA championship banners and the blue- and white-clad crowd. But after scoring a 10-9 decision against the Blue Jays at Homewood on April 5, 2013, Albany - which will pay another visit on Friday at 7 p.m. - has no qualms about entering enemy territory. “We have a lot of guys who played last year and are playing again this weekend, knowing that they can step onto that field and can play well and can compete with them,” said Great Danes coach Scott Marr, a former attackman at Johns Hopkins and former offensive coordinator at Maryland.

Stevenson's game on Saturday against Rochester Institute of Technology at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse is being billed by many as a rematch of last year's NCAA title game that the Mustangs won, 16-14, for the university's first Division III national championship. That's not how Stevenson coach Paul Cantabene sees it. “We know it's a big game, and we know they're going to be pumped up because it's their first game of the year,” he said of the Tigers Thursday morning. “For us, it's obviously a big game, but it's another regular-season game.
