Duke seeks to rebound tonight against Miami

Posted by on Thu, Feb 3, 2011 at 1:24 AM

Duke will try to recover from its long night in Connecticut tonight at 7, when No. 18 Miami visits in a battle for first place in ACC women’s basketball.

The No. 3 Blue Devils were the only undefeated Division I women’s team in the country before Monday night’s 87-51 blowout at defending NCAA Champion UConn.

Duke, which leads the series with Miami 7-0, hasn’t lost back-to-back games after Jan. 1 since 2000.

The Hurricanes, who have the ACC’s leading scorer in Riquna Williams, are coached by former Duke All-American Katie Meier. Miami had a 17-game winning streak earlier this season.
