Behind blistering shooting, Duke punched its ticket to the Sweet 16 for the 14th time in 15 years.
Sophomore Haley Peters scored a career-high 25 points and five Blue Devils finished in double digits as No. 2 seed and sixth-ranked Duke blasted No. 7 seed Vanderbilt for an 96-80 victory on Tuesday night in the second round of the Fresno Region of the NCAA Women’s Tournament.
“They were all in and all ready to go,” Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie said. “This team is going to Fresno, they deserve to go to Fresno and we’ve got to keep it going.”
Duke will play either No. 3 seed St. John’s or sixth seed Oklahoma in a regional semifinal on Saturday. Find a full game story here.
