Take of the week: Oluchi Okananwa's energy, production can help Duke women's basketball exceed expectations

(01/18/24 1:39am)

Duke women’s basketball opened its regular season Nov. 6 against Richmond. Unsurprisingly, the Blue Devils cruised to a comfortable victory against the Spiders on the back of an outstanding performance by junior guard Reigan Richardson.

In a blowout, the Blue Devils dominated Georgia Tech in just about every category and improved on their own common inconsistencies.
