Live blog! USF women's hoops vs. Duke
I can't help myself. I'm here at the St. Pete Times Forum, where USF is taking on No. 10 Duke as part of the ESPNU Invitational, a doubleheader on the site of this season's women's Final Four in April.
My esteemed colleague Izzy Gould, who will cover the Tennessee-Oklahoma showdown in about two hours, says just to consider a live blog from a regular-season women's college basketball game is a frightening level of blog addiction. But here I am, and for those of you stumbling onto the blog for the next two hours, it's just a bonus.
USF had an early 4-2 lead on the Blue Devils, but Duke's up 16-8 now, despite leading scorer Abby Waner sitting out with an ankle injury. Crowd is slowly filling up the bottom level of the Times Forum, with a whole bunch of Tennessee orange in attendance.
