As the Duke men prepare for UNC this weekend, the women’s team is getting ready to play in Greensboro in the ACC Tournament.
This season has been a real breakthrough for Kara Lawson’s program. Duke come in at #2 and with a record of 24-5 and 14-4. The worst Duke could finish would be 24-7 and while it would be disappointing perhaps to exit each tournament after one game, that’s still an excellent record. But this team clearly wants more.
Duke has a double-bye and won't play until Friday when the #2 Blue Devils face the Game 6 winner. That will be either #7 UNC or #10 Clemson.
On Wednesday, #12 Wake Forest beat #13 Virginia 68-57, #10 Clemson beat #15 Pitt 71-53 and #11 BC knocked off #14 Georgia Tech, 62-57.
On Thursday, #5 Florida State gets Wake Forest, #8 NC State plays #9 Syracuse, #7 UNC gets Clemson and #6 Miami entertains BC.
