On a recent day, the UAlbany men’s lacrosse team scored another goal against Capital Region rival Siena, adding to the total of the number No. 1 offense in all of Division I lacrosse.

    Despite being front-page news nationwide, the true story of the 2006 Duke lacrosse team rape case has never been told in its entirety and is more complex than all the reportage to date would indicate.

The Price of Silence: The Duke Lacrosse Scandal, the Power of the Elite, and the Corruption of Our Great Universities by William D. Cohan is the definitive, magisterial account of what happens when the most combustible forces in American culture— unbridled ambition, intellectual elitism, athletic prowess, aggressive sexual behavior, racial bias, and absolute prosecutorial authority—collide and then explode on a powerful university campus, in the justice system, and in the media.

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Police say one person is dead after an upstate New York wreck involving a bus carrying a college lacrosse team from Vermont.

Transportation officials say the accident happened just before noon Tuesday on Interstate 87 in Saratoga County, about 150 miles north of New York City.

State police say a person in one of two other vehicles involved has died. Police tell local media outlets the injuries on the bus were minor.
