NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Duke women's basketball team hit the ground running in its first 24 hours at the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Nashville, Tenn., The team and staff have been busy with meals, press conferences, interviews and practice.

Upon arrival Friday evening, the team had the rare opportunity to eat outside of the hotel at a nearby Fleming's Steakhouse where they were able to dine in a private room.

The next day, the Blue Devils had a jam packed afternoon starting with a press conference and player availability. Coach Joanne P. McCallie, senior Shay Selby and sophomores Haley Peters and Chelsea Gray fielded questions at the conference while other players were interviewed in the locker room.

Finally, the day ended with a 90-minute practice in Vanderbilt's Memorial Gym. The gym is unique in its theatrical structure and end zone benches. It was dedicated in 1952 and originally served as a gymnasium and concert hall which provides a unique atmosphere to play. The court is also raised so that the floor is just below eye level with the first row of spectators, similar to playing on a stage.

The Blue Devils will begin their NCAA Tournament competition Sunday against the Samford Bulldogs. Tipoff time is set for approximately 7:30 p.m. (EST) and the game will be aired live on ESPN2.
