    LOS ANGELES -- Tickets are still available for the USC-Duke game set for Saturday, Feb. 20, at 7 p.m. PT at Lebard Stadium in Costa Mesa, Calif. Fans can purchase tickets at www.OCD1lacrosse.com.

    Presented by the Orange County Chapter of U.S. Lacrosse, the 19th-ranked Women of Troy will face No. 4 Duke in an east-meets-west clash on the campus of Orange Coast College. The game is a rematch of the Trojans' final contest of 2015 in which they were eliminated from the NCAA tournament. The Blue Devils hosted USC in Durham, N.C., for an unprecedented second-round game for the Trojans who were in their third year as a Division I program and in the school's first-ever appearance in the NCAA tourney.

    Now in its fourth year, USC makes its first appearance in the IWLCA Division I Poll and came in at No. 19 in the preseason poll released on Feb. 1. The Trojans are ranked No. 18 in the Inside Lacrosse Media Poll. USC will open the 2016 campaign as host to Stetson on Saturday, Feb. 13, at 3 p.m. on McAlister Field.

    USC head coach Lindsey Munday was named the 2015 MPSF Coach of the Year as the Trojans put seven players on the MPSF All-Conference team including Player of the Year Michaela Michael. The Women of Troy had their most wins in a season (14), most conference victories (8), and a program-best second-place finish in the MPSF; the team's first appearance in the MPSF tournament final, and an unprecedented selection to the NCAA tournament field. There, USC earned a first-round win over James Madison before falling to third-seeded Duke in the round of 16. USC received its first votes in the IWLCA Coaches Poll, and completed the year with a 14-6 overall record (8-1 in the MPSF).
