Ladies first!! DWB takes on Slyvia and company, as coach Hatchell goes for her 900th win. Of course, I would so love for her to have to wait another game to reach that milestone. The women looked great for one half against Miami, and very good for one half against UCONN...but to beat the Heels in Chapel Hell they are going to have to look very good for a full 40.
Game is televised at 1pm on ESPNU. What a nice appetizer for the Super Bowl. :)

What is this "Super Bowl" thing to which you refer?

Carolina has been the beneficiary of some opponents' self-destruction, notably Miami, and got destroyed by Maryland up in College Park, but they're pretty good. I don't, however, think they're as good as Cal. A sold 40-minute effort should be enough to get the job done.

BTTT since it's a crime for ANY Duke - unc thread to be on page 2 less than 24 hours before tip.

All the stories are about 900. Looking forward to reading those for a few more days.

We'll have a group of about 300 over there denying any celebrations about 900 anything tomorrow, other than bad outfits. If you think it's whine and cheese in the Smith Center, it's even worse in Carmichael for the women. You will hear us on TV more than the home side.

North Carolina already showing the class and decorum for which Sylvia's teams have long been known.

Blue Devils up by 20...I'm loving it. Yep CB&B, hopefully Sylvia will have to wait a bit on that 900th win.

8 minute timeout

Duke 34 unc 7

Looks like Sylvia will have to wait a while for #900. (If this keeps up, they may even subtract a few from 899).

50-19 Duke at half. I think Duke can win the game without scoring a point in the 2nd half. They obviously will score many but how funny would it be to not shoot the ball for the entire 2nd half and still win.

50-19 at the half. Elizabeth is intimidating the bigger Heels inside. Pressure D all over. Plus of course shooting over 50% doesn't hurt. This with Chelsea on the bench with two fouls, including a terrible double T. The crowd, needless to say, is pretty quit. The Asian unicyclist at half was Carolina's highlight so far.

Up by 20 with under 1 minute to go and Sylvia has her team fouling us!

To be fair, Sylvia had her team fouling Duke all game. The refs just didn't start calling it until the last minute.

Final score 86 -43. Great game for the ladies. They allowed UNC to play better in the 2nd half, but we stayed strong.

Well, that sure was fun! Any time you can demolish NC@ch in their own building, that is to be enjoyed thoroughly. Awesome all-around game for the Duke ladies. Great D, great shooting, really fun game.

There seems to be some pretty clear separation in the ACC. Beat that Big-10 school up near DC and this race will be all but over!

Duke thumps Carolina and Sylvia is denied her 900th win.

Must be time for Trisha to hit the recruiting trail.

Actually, it would not have been funny because then UNC would not solely hold the record for least iron in a half.

First of all, congratulations to the team and staff for a very impressive win against a key conference rival.

Second of all, Go To Hell Carolina.

Third of all, I hate Sylvia more than I dislike Roy. Call me an equal-opportunity 9F'er.

Very nice win.

Try 84-63. Got your 4s and 6s mixed up. :)

Duke was 11-18 from beyond the arc, Carolina 3-12. That's your game right there. Wells was 6-7 on 3s, Liston 3-5. including a couple of huge rally-killers in the second half.

Ruffin-Pratt and Rolle had 18 and 17 points for the Heels.

But what they had to go through to get those 35 points. They shot a combined 11-34 from the field. R-P got to the line 12 times-made 11--but also turned it over 11 times!! Not the double-double you're looking for.

Hatchell said that she thought he team was intimidated early in the game. Hard to argue with the premise.

Duke goes to Charlottesville before hosting Maryland. Classic trap game. Need to put this one in the rear-view mirror and get ready for the 'Hoos.

My favorite stat from this game has to be Carolina's assist-to-turnover ratio: 0.458.

I'm not really that much of a stat-geek, but the efficiency stats really tell the story of this game.

Duke, 1.06 points per possession. Carolina, 0.78.

1.06 is good-but-not-great for D1 women; in fact, it's a hair above Duke's season average of 1.05, which is fifth-best in D1. More importantly, it's 0.33 above Carolina's average defensive efficiency. We shredded a very good defensive team.

0.78 is a train-wreck that busts open tank cars full of toxic chemicals. It's .08 below the Heeletes' quite mediocre season average.

LOVED watching that game, I'm just sorry I couldn't be there in person. There's nothing like a 31-point halftime lead on a beautiful afternoon...

I've been looking forward to seeing Ruffin-Pratt graduate, but I think I may have a new "favorite" in McDaniel. Yikes, where does Sylvia find these people? (To Sylvia's credit, this is the first time in a while I haven't seen any post-game comments referencing how much she thinks playing Duke is like playing a football team. Maybe she finally has some shame?)

I very distinctly heard chants of "Let's Go Duke" through my speakers. Well done y'all!
