Duke women draw No. 2 seed in Fresno Regional



DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke might face another true road game in its path through the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.

The Blue Devils received the No. 2 seed in the Fresno region and will spend the opening weekend in Nashville, Tenn.

They will face 15th-seeded Samford next Sunday. The winner faces either seventh-seeded Vanderbilt — the host of the subregional — or 10th-seeded Middle Tennessee State on March 20.

Duke (24-5) received its fifth No. 2 seed since 2000 after rolling to the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship and claiming the top seed in the league tournament.
