Duke Women #1 in AP, #2 in USA Today Preseason

Duke finished just ahead of Tennessee in the first AP
of the season, and just behind the Lady Vols in the USA
Today/ESPN poll. Happily, the two teams will get to settle things in

Virginia all got votes. In the AP poll, UNC was #7, Maryland #14, and NC
State #23.
