DURHAM, N.C.— The sixth-ranked Duke women’s basketball team racked up a 93-35 pounding over USC Upstate on Sunday afternoon in Cameron Indoor Stadium to increase its winning streak at home to 29 contests.

Senior Kathleen Scheer matched her season high with 10 points on 4-6 shooting, snagged two rebounds and swatted one away for a block.
Freshman Elizabeth Williams posted a career-high 22 points, while hitting 10-of-10 field goals, while sophomore Haley Peters matched a career high with 17 points to lead the Blue Devils.

After the game, Joanne P. McCallie in her opening statement said, "[We're] working on getting better out there. I thought our second half intensity was our higher intensity. I love the fact that we stayed focused enough to shoot 60 percent. I like the fact that we shared the ball; found each other. I like the fact that we adjusted in and out of different defenses; trying to communicate better in the second half. I thought the balance was good. I like Chloe's seven steals, and her being aggressive. We're just a work in progress [and] getting better. I thought we made the most out of that."

After yesterday’s win, Duke improves to 7-2 on the season, registered their 29th consecutive win at home and 52 of 53 games at Cameron.
Duke will next play host to UNC Wilmington on Tues., Dec. 20.
