Following Duke University’s convincing 17-6 win over Colgate on Sunday in Philadelphia, Justin Turri and his Blue Devils teammates are moving on to the national semi-final of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. They face Atlantic Coast Conference rival Maryland on Saturday at Gillette Stadium. The game will be televised on ESPN 2.
