Duke Wins ACC LAX Championship

Duke rallied from a 4-2 halftime deficit to defeat North Carolina 12-9 and win the 2012 ACC Men's Lacrosse Championship on a cold and rainy afternoon in Charlottesville, Va. It was Duke's seventh ACC title in the tournament era and its fourth conference title in the past six years.

"I'm very humbled that we had the opportunity to play in this game, and then we have an opportunity to win a championship game," said Duke coach John Danowski. "Winning an ACC championship is a big deal. While the lacrosse world will say that, hey it's only four teams, but our conference is so competitive that it is a big deal to be crowned a champion. Also with the physicality of these two games, you have to play so hard to win. It just goes to the team that fights the hardest to win. I'm very proud of this group at the end of the day."
