                === Duke holds off NC State, stays unbeaten ===
 
 Raleigh,  NC (Sports Network) - Chelsea Gray scored 20 points and Haley Peters
 recorded  a double-double as No. 3 Duke escaped Reynolds Coliseum with a 67-57
 victory over NC State to remain undefeated.
 
 Peters  totaled 18  points and 11 rebounds  for Duke (12-0, 2-0 ACC), which is
 off to the fifth-best start in school history.
 
 Kody  Burke  and Marissa  Kastanek paced  NC State  (8-6, 0-2)  with 15 and 12
 points, respectively, in the loss.
 
 NC State took its first lead with a 9-0 run late in the first half, but failed
 to hit a field goal in the final 6 1/2 minutes.
 
 The  drought allowed Duke to take a 31-28 lead into the locker room, and while
 the  Blue Devils never trailed in the second half, they didn't pull away until
 Peters  hit a  3-pointer to ignite an  11-3 run that gave the visitors a 61-50
 lead with just over two minutes left.
 
 The  Wolfpack  pulled within two  possessions down  the stretch, but Duke made
 enough  free throws  in the final minute  to secure its eighth straight win in
 Raleigh.
