Duke quickly shook off any post-finals rust with a thorough 107-45 dismantling of UNC-Wilmington. That represented the most points ever surrendered by the Seahawks, and coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke noted that her team "just never showed up", but Duke did their job by attacking at both ends for close to forty minutes. Duke started the game on a 14-1 run and later turned a 30-17 lead with under seven minutes left in the first half into a 55-22 halftime bulge. After a 12-4 UNC-W run, the Devils crushed their foe with an 18-3 run of their own; the Seahawks offered no further resistance after that. The numbers tell the story in this game: Duke had a 78-18 edge in points in the paint; 56-14 in points off turnovers; 21-2 in second chance points, 31-6 in fast break points and 51-2 in bench points. The Seahawks, who recently beat a good team in Charlotte, were completely unprepared for Duke's pressure and desire to compete.

Top Performers:

  1. Allison Vernerey: 22 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals
  2. Chelsea Gray: 14 points, 4 rebounds, 10 assists, 4 steals
  3. Tricia Liston: 18 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals

Duke returns to action on December 30th at Temple, followed by a home date with Joanne Boyle's Virginia Cavaliers in Cameron on January 2, 2012. We hope all our members and friends enjoy the holidays!
