Joanne P. McCallie’s floor generals have gone on to succeed en masse after Duke, including this summer's WNBA All-Stars Jasmine Thomas and Chelsea Gray.
The Blue Devils upset the Gamecocks at home last season and will face off against them for the fourth straight season.
Make it two Duke teams that will be traveling abroad this August in advance of their 2017-18 seasons.
Headlining head coach Joanne P. McCallie’s haul are forward Jade Williams, ESPN’s No. 14 recruit in this year’s class, and Mikayla Boykin, No. 21 overall and the seventh-best guard in the nation.
After losing both of its starting frontcourt players to graduation, the Blue Devils took an important step toward filling their void in the post with more experience Monday morning.
One of Duke's reserve wings will transfer this offseason, and the Blue Devils will now also have to replace one of their backup post players.
