Duke will attempt to become the nation’s only Division I women’s basketball team to start this season 20-0 tonight, when underdog Clemson visits Cameron Indoor Stadium in an ACC battle.

If the No. 3 Blue Devils can prevail, it will be their fourth 20-0 start in the last nine seasons. Duke has won 19 straight home games and 17 straight home conference games.

The series is tied 32-32, but Duke has won 13 straight games against the Tigers. Former Clemson player Itoro Coleman is the Tigers’ head coach.

Following tonight’s game, the Blue Devils’ next contest is on the road Monday night against defending NCAA champion Connecticut.
