With less than 15 seconds in the first quarter, Sherlock dropped the ball, recovered and flicked it in for his second of the day with 9.6 seconds on the first-quarter clock to tie the game.

Brad Smith started the Duke second-quarter run when he went low-to-low 1:16 into the second quarter, and Manown added his second of the game three minutes later.

Reilly Walsh had a goal at 9:41, and Smith scored a score on a six-on-four extra-man possession at 4:38.

Kyle Rowe won the ensuing faceoff for the Blue Devils, and he fed Bruckner inside for a goal seven seconds after Smith's to stretch the Duke lead to 8-3.

Neither team scored in the opening seven minutes of the second half until Pat Spencer recorded his second of the game for Loyola at 7:38, but Duke then reeled off three consecutive goals as part of a 6-1 run.

Sherlock scored again after picking up a loose ball in a scrum with 13:20 left in regulation, making it 11-5 Blue Devils, but Duke scored three in a row to put the game out of reach for Loyola.

No. 2 Maryland at No. 12 Albany: The game between the Terps (4-1) and Great Danes (3-1) was postponed because of inclement weather. It has been rescheduled for April 12 at a time to be announced.

Albany has won three straight, and Maryland last lost to then-No. 4 Notre Dame, 5-4, on March 4.
