DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke wants nothing more than to give center Elizabeth Williams a chance to play at home in the Norfolk Regional
The path for the second-seeded Blue Devils to get the Virginia Beach native back to her home area for the Norfolk Regional starts with their game against 15th-seeded Hampton, which would also like to get back to home.
Coach Joanne P. McCallie says setting up a virtual home game for her star center is “just icing on the cake, but that’s something we have to earn.”
Duke (30-2) takes on the Pirates (28-5) on Sunday in the opener of the four-team subregional. The winner will face either seventh-seeded Oklahoma State (21-10) or 10th-seeded DePaul (21-11).
Williams says the Blue Devils “have to take care of business first.”
