Blue Devils avoid Virginia upset

(01/10/03 5:00am)

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Alana Beard was sensational Thursday night against Virgina (5-8, 0-3 in the ACC), scoring a school-record 41 points, including two game-winning free-throws with 0.8 seconds remaining in a 60-59 win over unranked Virginia. No. 1 Duke (14-0, 2-0) held possession of the ball for the last 36 seconds of the game, when Virginia deflected the ball out of bounds, forced a jump-ball and three Blue Devil misses before Cavalier Karen Jaeger fouled Beard at half-court while fighting for a loose ball with less than a second remaining.

ATLANTA -- With five minutes remaining in the first half, Duke had played its most sluggish football of the year. Rain fell in sheets the previous 24 hours, but barely a drop fell from the clouds that covered the downtown Atlanta sky line during the game. Although acknowledging that the game conditions were adequate, the Blue Devils' play reflected that of inclement weather. Balls were bobbled through players hands and the running game struggled to get the leverage it normally has. It was a mudfest without mud.
