The more you know: Brower and O'Neill can be the catalysts for Duke men's lacrosse's bounce back season
Placing No. 8 in the Inside Lacrosse Preseason Poll, there have been high expectations and hopes for Duke coming into its 2023 spring season. Starting off hot with two resounding wins before a nail-biting 12-13 loss to Jacksonville, the Blue Devils have largely shown signs that the faith placed in them was not unfounded. To hope to exceed expectations and bring home an NCAA title for the first time since 2014, the Blue Devils put their trust behind two stars that were just placed on the Tewaaraton Award watch list. Senior defender Kenny Brower and electric junior attackman Brennan O’Neill are prime candidates for the award, an honor that annually recognizes the top male and female college lacrosse players in the United States.
