#LMLive GameDay: Double Dipping in Durham

from staff reports | Twitter

The Duke men's and women's lacrosse teams are lurking uncomfortably close to .500 and seeking consistency as they start grueling ACC stretches Saturday with a doubleheader in Durham, N.C.

After blowouts of Loyola and Georgetown, it looked like the Blue Devils men were ready to hit their annual mid-March stride, rounding into the form that had them ranked No. 3 in the Nike/Lacrosse Magazine Preseason Top 20. But then pesky Air Force came to town Tuesday, rallied late and upset Duke in overtime. The No. 9 Blue Devils now are just a little more desperate for a win Saturday against No. 6 Syracuse in their ACC opener at 12 p.m.

The Duke women, No. 14 in the latest Nike/LM Top 20, host No. 13 Virginia in the second game Saturday at 3 p.m. After blowing out Louisville, the Blue Devils have barely gotten by Columbia and Villanova. That's not to mention ugly losses earlier in the season to Elon and Georgetown. They are 2-0 in ACC play, whereas the Cavaliers are 0-3 and had to rally to beat James Madison on Wednesday to snap a four-game losing streak.
