The No. 2 seed and sixth-ranked Blue Devils led for the entire second half and held on in the end, ousting No. 3 seed and 10th-ranked DePaul 70-63 in the semifinals of the Philadelphia Regional.

Duke and UConn will play for the regional championship on Tuesday night. Connecticut, which beat the visiting Blue Devils 87-51 on Jan. 31, advanced in the earlier game with a 68-63 comeback win over No. 4 seed Georgetown.

Karima Christmas led the Blue Devils (32-3) with a season-high 23 points, followed by Jasmine Thomas with 19 and Chelsea Gray with 16.

Deirdre Naughton led DePaul (29-7) with 17 points, while Felicia Chester, Sam Quigley and Keisha Hampton chipped in 11 points apiece.
