The quarterfinal round of the Division I men’s lacrosse NCAA tournament is over, and the semifinals for Saturday are set. Here is the schedule:

Saturday, May 26

(at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.)

No. 4 seed Notre Dame (13-2) vs. No. 1 seed Loyola (16-1), 2:30 p.m.

Maryland (11-5) vs. No. 3 seed Duke (15-4), 5 p.m.

Monday, May 28

(at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.)

Maryland or No. 3 seed Duke vs. No. 4 seed Notre Dame or No. 1 seed Loyola, 1 p.m.

A little history:

Loyola is 12-5 all-time against Notre Dame, but the Fighting Irish have won the past four meetings. These teams faced each other in the NCAA tournament just once, with the Greyhounds enjoying a 21-5 thumping in the first round on May 11, 1997.

Maryland is 59-20 against Duke. The two sides split their earlier contests with the Terps winning, 10-7, on March 3, and the Blue Devils returning the favor with a 6-5 decision in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinal on April 20.
