Duke held a 39-34 advantage in rebounds, but still had 24 turnovers. With the loss, Duke snapped an eight-game winning streak in Cameron.

The Melanoma Awareness Game

In partnership with the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation, the Duke women’s basketball team hosted its annual Melanoma Awareness game against Louisville on Sunday. This cause is close to the team with head coach Joanne P. McCallie being a multiple time melanoma survivor and Faith Suggs losing her mother to melanoma.

Miela Goodchild Named ACC Rookie of the Week

Coming off last week’s back-to-back wins against East Carolina and Florida Gulf Coast, freshman Miela Goodchild was named ACC Rookie of the Week. Goodchild tallied and career-high 19 points against East Carolina, and averaged 17.0 points, 2.5 steals, 2.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists over the two games. The guard leads Duke with 28 three-pointers on the year.

Greenwell & Edwards Tandem Back in Action

Duke women's basketball radio play-by-play announcer Chris Edwards has a familiar face sitting next to him this season with the addition of Rebecca Greenwell as a color analyst.  Greenwell, Duke's all-time three-pointers made leader, remains in town rehabbing a knee injury. 

Gorecki Nets Impressive Mark
