Duke lacrosse team

On January 10, 2016, John Danowski stood on the sideline of a soggy lacrosse field in Bradenton, Florida, where most of the day before hard rains had pelted the surrounding palm trees. He watched his U.S. Lacrosse National team warm up, while at the other end of the field its opponent, 2015 NCAA champion University of Denver Pioneers, did the same.
