MEN'S NEWS ... Having lost his entire backline -- including Rodney Wallace, Omar Gonzalez and A.J. DeLaGarza, who all start in MLS --  Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski was preoccupied with defensive issues in the 2009 preseason. But with only four goals in their first three games, scoring was the problem early on. That all changed Tuesday night as No. 7 Maryland routed Duquesne, 7-0, in the pouring rain.

Matt Kassel scored on a free kick from 25 yards out in the 13th minute opened the scoring. Fellow sophomore Casey Townsend put the game away with three goals.

"It was a very gratifying performance," Cirovski said. "We've been talking about getting a little crisper in finishing and tonight I thought we made some good runs and good crosses and had some good goals. We showed a little more menace in our attack and we didn't give up after we scored one. To be fair to Duquesne, they had two games over the weekend and I think they were a little fatigued and had a hard time keeping up with our energy and pace."

-- Senior Ronnie Bouemboue scored two goals and set up another as No. 21 North Carolina State defeated Campbell, 5-1. Next up for the Wolfpack: Maryland at home on Saturday.

-- Neil Barlow's goal in the 38th minute was all No. 25 Virginia could muster from an 18-2 advantage in shots and the Cavaliers settled for a 1-0 win over Mount St. Mary's. They play Wake Forest on Friday.

Tuesday's Scoreboard

* HAT TRICK HEROES:
-- Townsend's hat trick for Maryland was his first in two seasons with the Terrapins.
-- Honduran Romario Blandon's three goals gave VCU a 4-3 win over city rival Richmond.
