DURHAM, N.C.-The Duke University men's lacrosse team will participate in the fifth annual Champion® Challenge on Jan. 30 - 31, 2010 at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The Blue Devils will take on the U.S. Men's National Team on Jan. 31 at 1 p.m.

The event, organized by US Lacrosse, will feature the U.S. men's and women's national lacrosse team programs, Duke University's men's and women's lacrosse teams, the United States Military Academy's men's lacrosse team, the University of Notre Dame's women's lacrosse team and the University of Florida women's lacrosse team.

The U.S. men's national team will faceoff against Duke and the United States Military Academy in Team USA's first time playing together since the 23-man U.S. team roster was announced on Nov. 2. This is the second time Team USA and Duke will have faced each other in the Champion Challenge. Duke played the U.S. team in 2008's event.

"We are excited to have the opportunity to begin our preparations for the July World Championships in Manchester, England," said Jody Martin, US Lacrosse's men's division director.
