Holy Cross incurs Duke's wrath

Story body

RALEIGH (AP) -- Duke hadn't played a basketball game since losing to North Carolina State in the ACC tournament.

Someone was bound to pay for that one blemish on the Blue Devils' schedule, and it was over-matched Holy Cross.

Abby Waner hit six 3-pointers and scored 20 of her 22 points during an overwhelming first half, and top-seeded Duke cruised to an 81-to-44 rout of the Crusaders in the first round of the Greensboro Regional.

Alison Bales had 13 points, and Joy Cheek and Carrem Gay added 10 apiece for Duke (31-1), which will face the Temple-Nebraska winner Tuesday in the second round.
