I think both games are incredibly intriguing, but with my track record, whichever team I pick is going to lose. Duke-Denver, that's a Duke team that beat the Pioneers in February for the first time in a couple seasons. … Denver really likes to pack it in. They have an incredible defensive system. Duke, you can score goals on them if you have the ball, if you have possession, and no one is better at dissecting defenses than the Denver Pioneers. And then you have to factor in the loss of [senior attackman] Josh Dionne [to a right knee injury] for Duke if he's not able to play next weekend. When you roll all of that up, that's a pick-em. But I think with [Blue Devils senior faceoff specialist] Brendan Fowler always saving his best for last and the way that Duke offense just pressures you, I'll probably go with the Duke Blue Devils in the first game. Notre Dame-Maryland, I just want them both to play fast and play aggressive offensively because they are fun to watch when they get after it. When you look at this game, I think offensively, [Terps senior midfielder Mike] Chanenchuk and [Fighting Irish sophomore attackman Matt] Kavanagh have stepped up big with game-winners. Those guys are just legit. They're leaders and prime-time players. If you look at the defense, I think Maryland has the advantage on defense, and Maryland has the advantage in goaltending. [Fighting Irish senior faceoff specialist] Liam O'Connor got abused by [Terps junior] Charlie Raffa, but Raffa's banged up. I don't know to what extent, and I guess we'll find out on Saturday. But with [junior Nick] Ossello and O'Connor as a two-headed monster, I think you might see more of them. I think Notre Dame just has a big ol' chip on their shoulder. They beat Albany, but everybody continues to talk about the Thompsons. So I think Notre Dame feels like they're not getting their just due. So in a slight edge, I think I'll take Notre Dame.
