Duke hopes to recover at home against last-place Hokies



On paper, it should be the biggest mismatch in ACC women’s basketball this season.

Defending champion and first-place Duke (23-3, 9-2 ACC) comes into today’s noon home game with last-place
Virginia Tech (11-15, 1-10) smarting from a 69-47 loss at Maryland on Thursday night.

The Hokies, meanwhile, were losing to N.C. State 81-65 at home as the Wolfpack broke its eight-game ACC losing streak.

No. 7 Duke leads the all-time series 16-2, has won 21 straight games at home and 19 straight home games against ACC opposition.
