In the last home games of the season, the No. 6 women's lacrosse team took on No. 20 Stanford and No. 9 Johns Hopkins at Koskinen Stadium this weekend. Under the leadership of senior Meghan Walters, the Blue Devils (10-4) won both contests and will use this momentum as they go into the ACC tournament.
With strong showings in the last few weeks, the No. 18 men's golf team will compete in the 51st ACC Championship this weekend in New London, N.C. at Old North State Club. Although the ACC holds many of the country's most talented golf programs and individuals, Duke is optimistic going into the tournament.
Coming off a close loss to No. 17 East Carolina--the baseball team's fifth in a row--the Blue Devils (15-18, 3-6 in ACC) will take on a struggling Wake Forest team (11-18, 1-8) in a three-game series this weekend. The Demon Deacons, who most recently fell to UNC Greensboro 12-4, are also looking to snap their 10-game losing streak this weekend. With two teams looking to turn around their seasons, the series will undoubtedly be hard fought.
In the best attended game of the season, the baseball team took on No. 17 Eastern Carolina in front of a sea of purple and gold spectators screaming throughout the game. Suffering their fifth straight loss, the Blue Devils (15-18) fell 7-5 to the Pirates (25-6) despite solid pitching and clean defense.
The baseball team (15-17) entered the heart of its season last weekend against Virginia, which took all three games of the opening series of Duke's month-long homestand. After a defensively disappointing series against the Cavaliers in which Duke committed ten errors, the Blue Devils look to turn the tide against No. 18 East Carolina (24-6) tonight at Jack Coombs Field.
In a series marred by Duke errors, Virginia swept three games from the Blue Devils this weekend. Committing 10 errors in three games, contrasted to the perfect defense of the Cavaliers, the baseball team paid for its mistakes in unearned runs, as Duke (15-17, 3-6 in the ACC) and Virginia (25-7, 7-4) allowed the same number of earned runs in two of the three games.
After the High Point Panthers' poor pitching handed Duke many of its runs in a comeback win Tuesday, the baseball team's hurlers did in the Blue Devils as they lost, 13-5, to Elon yesterday afternoon.
It's said all too often that a baseball team is only as good as its pitching staff.
As it rained on Jack Coombs Field yesterday afternoon, the baseball team (15-13) beat High Point (5-23) in a come-from-behind 12-7 win. Taking advantage of the Panthers' weak pitching staff, the Blue Devils were able to pick up 12 runs off only seven hits. Tony Bajoczk picked up his first win of the season and Justin DiLucchio, who recorded the save, pitched four solid innings in which he allowed only one run.
Coming off recent success against N.C. State and UNC-Wilmington, the baseball team (14-12, 3-3 in ACC) lost its first conference series at Maryland (10-12, 2-4) this weekend. Though Duke convincingly won the first game of the series 13-5, late inning Terrapin runs gave the home team the advantage and the wins Saturday and Sunday.
In last night's game against UNC-Wilmington (12-10), the baseball team (13-11) finally found a way to win a one-run battle. With strong relief pitching, Duke was able to beat the Seahawks 4-3, something it could not do earlier this season when it lost by a run to the same team.
This weekend, the baseball team (12-11, 2-1 in ACC) opened its ACC season taking the series against No. 17 N.C. State (15-6, 1-2), the first series Duke has taken from the Wolfpack in three years. The Blue Devils fell Friday night to the Wolfpack-they were unable to generate any offense against N.C. State pitching standout Michael Rogers-but jumped back to take the remaining two games.
The cast of Inside Joke insists that they, in fact, are not D.U.I., Duke's improv troupe. They are a sketch comedy group that performs a number of pre-written skits, mocking everyone from fraternities to Dr. Seuss. The team of 14 puts on around three free shows a semester, the next of which will be Saturday night at the Hideaway at 8:00 p.m. Their final production, on April 16-17, however, will have an admission price. The proceeds go to charity--or so they say.
Mississippi State, the No. 2 seed in the South region, has steadily climbed the national polls with consistently strong performances in the SEC, which earned them the regular season title. Having failed to get past the first round of the tournament last year and having its last Final Four appearance in 1996, MSU will need to pull off a string of strong performances to make it far this March.
Every year the tournament has its Cinderella stories, and every year, there are the let-downs: those teams that are hyped by the media, when in fact, they do not have a fighting chance to win it all. Four teams rise to the surface when discussing the latter--St. Joseph's, Stanford, Texas, and Gonzaga.
Some students party it up in the Caribbean during spring break. Some relax at home. Others play nine baseball games.
In the coming weeks, the Naismith National Advisory Board will vote for one of 10 finalists to be named the Naismith Female College Basketball Player of the Year. With such names as Bobby Knight and Dick Vitale, the board includes men and women prominently known for their contribution to college basketball.
In yet another heartbreaking loss, the baseball team (7-4) fell to UNC-Wilmington (4-6) Wednesday afternoon. Though the Blue Devils jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, the Seahawks answered in the third with five runs. Duke kept the game close, but with a one run lead in the seventh, the UNC-W scored a pair of unanswered runs, winning the game 9-8.
It seemed like Clemson all over again. With 1:42 left in the first half, Monique Currie rebounded a missed Wolfpack three-pointer and sent the ball down the court to Alana Beard. She drove to the basket with defenders on her, but without even a glance tossed the ball to the trailing Brittany Hunter for an easy two points. With yet another spectacular play, the women's basketball team (24-3, 15-1 ACC) went on to beat N.C. State (16-13, 8-8) 90-57 in the last game of the regular season last night. With the ACC and NCAA Tournaments looming ahead, Duke is hitting its peak right on time.
With about four minutes left in the first half, Vicki Krapohl sank her second three-pointer of the night off a pass from fellow senior Iciss Tillis. On the subsequent possession, Alana Beard stole the ball from Clemson and ran it down the court. With Lady Tigers on her tail, Beard threw a behind-the-back pass into the hands of Tillis, who laid it up to put Duke ahead by 22. These phenomenal plays were certainly indicative of senior night in Cameron Indoor Stadium Friday, as Duke crushed Clemson by 57 points.
