The Game Story:
DURHAM, N.C. -- Matt Danowski and Zack Greer combined for 10 goals
and six assists to lead top-ranked Duke to an 18-4 victory over St.
Joseph's in men's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon at Koskinen
Stadium.

The Blue Devils improve to 4-0 on the year while the Hawks fall to
0-4.

Danowski's unassisted goal less than three minutes into the contest
gave Duke the lead for good. Greer and Brad Ross added tallies in
the opening period for a 3-0 advantage. Mike O'Neill got the Hawks
on the board with a goal from Alex Lopes at the 12:16 mark of the
second quarter. After Bo Carrington and Danowski scored back-to-back
goals less than two minutes apart for a 5-1 Duke lead, Peter Slowik
tallied the first of his three goals on the day to pull St. Joseph's
back within three. Max Quinzani's goal with just 1:35 left in the
half sent the teams to intermission with the Blue Devils ahead, 6-2.

Greer found the back of the net four times in the third quarter as
Duke claimed a 12-4 lead. The Blue Devils then outscored the Hawks
by a 6-0 margin over the final 15 minutes to account for the final
margin.

The seven goals for Greer match his career-best effort set against
VMI on March 1, 2005. His nine total points against the Hawks are a
career-high, bettering his previous mark of eight versus VMI (3/1/05)
and Dartmouth in the 2007 season-opener. Greer now has 90 goals in
32 career games at Duke, standing just 10 tallies short of becoming
the 11th player in school history to reach the 100-goal plateau.
Danowski pushes his season totals to 13 goals and nine assists while
moving into 10th place on Duke's all-time scoring chart with 182
points on 98 goals and 84 assists. He also ranks sixth on the
school's career list for assists and 11th in goals.

Duke travels to San Diego, Calif., to participate in the annual First
4 event. The Blue Devils will meet Loyola on Saturday evening at
10:30 p.m. (ET) and the game will be televised live by CSTV.
