DURHAM, N.C. – Redshirt freshman Rebecca Greenwell and senior Elizabeth Williams combined for 54 points as the Blue Devils concluded exhibition play with a 100-45 win over Armstrong State Sunday at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Williams notched her second consecutive double-double with 23 points and 18 rebounds and also added five blocks in the win. Greenwell once again displayed sharp shooting from deep, connecting on 5-of-10 from three-point range, while freshman Sierra Calhoun contributed 15 points and seven rebounds.

The team’s defense held the Pirates to 23 percent shooting for the contest, allowing just 22 points in the second half.

Williams dumped in a quick four buckets to give Duke a 10-2 start to the contest. The home squad stretched that lead to double digits on a pair of treys by Greenwell and utilized stifling defense to limit Armstrong State to just four points in the opening nine minutes.

The Pirates started to find their rhythm midway through the half, narrowing the gap to 24 points on contributions by three different players. However, the Blue Devils maintained consistency on both ends to take a 54-23 advantage in the locker room at the break.

Duke shot 57 percent from the floor in the first half and led in rebounds by a 33-17 margin.

Greenwell came out firing in the second period, launching a pair of shots from behind the arc to top the 20-point mark for the second consecutive exhibition contest. The Blue Devils continued to add to their lead, with Calhoun reaching double figures and Williams cleaning up on the boards. Sophomore Kendall Cooper came off the bench to add 10 rebounds, including five in the second half.
 
Duke closed the game on an 18-7 scoring run to secure the exhibition victory. The squad finished with a 68-37 advantage in rebounding and shot 52 percent from the field for the day.

The Blue Devils officially open the 2014-15 season on the road, traveling to Alabama for a 7 p.m. contest Sunday, Nov. 16.
