Max Quinzani scored off a feed from Ned Crotty with 12 seconds remaining in the game to give Duke a 14-13 win over Virginia in the Division I semifinals tonight in Baltimore before 44,389 fans at M&T Bank Stadium.
Duke will play Notre Dame on Monday at 3:30 p.m. in the national championship game in Baltimore, which will be broadcast live on ESPN. Notre Dame defeated Cornell 12-7 in the day’s other semifinal. Neither Duke nor Notre Dame has ever won a national title.
With Virginia’s elimination, this will mark the first time since 1990 a team other than Virginia, Syracuse, Princeton or Johns Hopkins has won the title.
Duke (15-3), which was the preseason No. 1-ranked team, started its season 2-3, including a 12-11 overtime win over Bucknell on Feb. 13 and 11-7 loss to Notre Dame (10-6) a week later.
