Duke looks for rematch, not repeat, in NCAA semifinals

In a rematch of last season's NCAA semifinal loss, Duke is not looking for a repeat result.

Facing an ACC rival that defeated No. 2 seed Johns Hopkins in the quarterfinal round, No. 3 seed Duke (15-4) will square off at 5 p.m. with Maryland (11-5) Saturday in the semifinal round of the NCAA tournament at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The Blue Devils and Terrapins split their two contests this season, with Maryland winning the regular-season matchup 10-7 and Duke winning in the ACC tournament semifinal 6-5.

"[Maryland] is playing its best lacrosse of the season," Blue Devil head coach John Danowski said. "They're a terrific defensive team, fabulous goalie. And they're getting a lot of balanced scoring from their offensive players."
