Fresh off its season-opening 104-35 rout of Houston Baptist on the Huskies' court, No. 6 Duke is back in action in women's basketball today with a 3 p.m. (EST) visit to Texas A&M.

The Blue Devils are winless in two meetings with the Aggies, the last a 77-63 loss in Oklahoma City in the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2008.

Gary Blair's Aggies are unranked in the Associated Press poll, but No. 16 in the coaches' poll.

Bridgette Mitchell (pictured) led Duke with 18 points in the season opener.

Following today's game, Duke will return to Durham for its home opener at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Thursday night against Georgia Southern.
