PHILADELPHIA – The Saint Joseph's men's lacrosse team (0-2) will kick off a three-game road stretch at #18/16 Duke (2-2) this Saturday, February 25. Opening face-off at Koskinen Stadium is slated for 1:00 p.m. The game will be streamed via ACC Network Extra.

The game will mark SJU's third consecutive contest against a nationally-ranked opponent, marking the first time in program history that the Hawks have opened the season against three nationally-ranked teams in a row.

Saturday’s game will mark the second all-time meeting between Saint Joseph’s and Duke. Then ranked first in the nation, the Blue Devils came away with an 18-4 win in Durham, N.C. on March 6, 2007.

SJU's coaching staff has strong ties with Duke's men's lacrosse program, as sixth-year head coach Taylor Wray ('03) and sixth-year associate head coach Dan Keating ('99) played for the Blue Devils.

Saint Joseph's enters Saturday's game coming off of a 10-5 loss to #19 Penn on Saturday afternoon. For the second consecutive game, senior midfielder Kevin Reidinger scored twice, while senior goalkeeper T.J. Jones made 15 saves. The Hawks had opened the season with a 16-8 loss to then-#2/3 Maryland.

Duke is 2-2 after opening the season with an 11-10 loss to #19 Air Force, winning back-to-back games against High Point, 10-5, and Cleveland State, 22-7, and most recently dropping a 14-9 match-up at then-#1 Denver on Saturday. Justin Guterding (12g, 8a) and Jack Bruckner (9g, 5a) lead the Blue Devils' offense, while goalkeeper Danny Fowler (1-2) has seen a majority of the minutes in net.

Under Wray's direction, Saint Joseph’s returns 27 Hawks, including six starters, from a squad that matched a program-best 12 wins and reached the Northeast Conference Championship title game just a year ago, and welcomes 17 newcomers for the 2017 campaign.
