Chloe Wells scored a career-high 18 points to help No. 5 Duke roll past No. 11 North Carolina 84-63 on Sunday. Tricia Liston added 15 for the Blue Devils (20-1, 10-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who jumped all over the Tar Heels to take the drama out of this one early. Duke blew the game open with a 29-3 run over 10 minutes, led by 31 at halftime and was up by as many as 33 points in its fifth straight win in the rivalry.

Better shot at a #1 Seed, Duke or Miami?

When was the last time an ACC team not named Duke or North Carolina had shot at an NCAA tournament number 1 seed?
