Next Up - Holy Cross

Duke takes on Holy Cross in Raleigh Sunday (7 p.m., ESPN2) as the women take the court for the first time since losing to State in the ACC Tournament, a game that somehow seems a very long time ago.

After last year's very tough loss to Maryland, Duke was understandably devastated.  But comfort came from Kay Yow, who gave the Devils a motto:  delayed but not denied.  Sounds a bit like Dale Brown's old line - "God wants me to win a national championship; he just hasn't decided when."

Duke should be rested and motivated for this game and this tournament.  State, one hopes, motivated before the season and after the ACC Tournament.
