POSTGAME: No. 1 Duke vs. No. 3 Virginia

POSTGAME Duke 11, Virginia 9. In all, Virginia scored six fourth quarter goals to Duke’s zero, dominating every facet of the game down the stretch. But, alas, it was too little, too late, and the Blue Devils held on by the skin of their noses for their second straight ACC Tourament title and fifth overall. Although Virginia was very productive in the final period, Dan Loftus should still be credited with a great afternoon. The senior held the Cavaliers in check for the vast majority of the game, which proved to be crucial as the eight-goal fourth quarter deficit proved too much to overcome.

The Blue Devils seem exhausted but happy as they receive the ACC Tournament trophy at midfield. We’re also awaiting the announcement of the All-Tournament team and the ACC Tournament MVP.

Virginia: Ben Rubeor, Garrett Billings, Bud Petit, Danny Glading

Duke: Matt Danowski, Parker McKee, Zack Greer, Ned Crotty, Max Quinzani, Tony McDevitt, Nick O’Hara

Tournament MVP: Dan Loftus (17 saves in today’s game)
