Marquette continues their spring break road trip after dropping a 9-8 decision to Jacksonville on Saturday. This stop in North Carolina is in the middle of their trip, and they'll conclude on Saturday in Michigan against Detroit. The Golden Eagles have shown signs of improving their play over last season, even if their record hasn't really shown it as they sit at 1-4 so far this season. Outside of last Saturday, they've been better at keeping track of the ball, and outside of the shoddy first game against Lehigh, MU has been better than last year at the face off X.

But now they play Duke. These two teams squared off last year, and let's go to a short video recap of how that game went. WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT AHEAD, MAY NOT BE ACTUAL LACROSSE

Close enough, really. Duke took the opening face off and scored before I could even finish typing my "and we're off" tweet in that game. True story.

The Blue Devils are 4-2 on the season and on a two game losing streak. They dropped their first loss of the season and their #1 ranking 10-6 to #3 Maryland in College Park, and then this past Sunday, they got plastered by #5 Loyola (MD) by a final of 14-7. Duke surrendered four fourth quarter goals to the Greyhounds, and the game was barely close before the quarter started to boot.

So you have a Blue Devils team that obliterated Marquette just 10 months ago that's now pissed off and hungry. Jordan Wolf and Josh Dionne have both scored 13 goals for Duke this year, and Luke Aaron has played a majority of the time in net, posting a goals against average of just 8.73. Oh, and the Blue Devils have a 29 year old combat veteran Army Ranger and father of two playing starting on defense for them.

Good luck, boys.
