DURHAM, N.C. — Duke is the only unbeaten team in women's college basketball, though the No. 3 Blue Devils probably should have a few losses by now.
They've been down 20 in the second half against a rival on the road, and trailed nationally ranked teams in the closing moments at home. They've watched a top-five opponent fling up a potential game-winning layup at the buzzer.
Yet Duke continues to find ways to escape defeat en route to its 19-0 record.
The Blue Devils can make it to 20-0 for the fourth time in school history while extending the best start of Joanne P. McCallie's lengthy coaching career with a win against struggling Clemson. After that comes Duke's toughest test — a visit to No. 2 Connecticut.
