Tricia Liston rescues No. 5 Duke after injury to star Chelsea Gray
DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke was stuck in a surprisingly tight game with the one team it always beats, and the player capable of single-handedly saving the Blue Devils had just dislocated her knee.That left it up to Tricia Liston and Elizabeth Williams to find a way to keep No. 5 Duke rolling.Liston scored a career-high 29 points with five 3-pointers, and the Blue Devils pulled away to beat Wake Forest 81-70 on Sunday after losing star Chelsea Gray to a knee injury."I thought it was a huge test of our team's resilience," coach Joanne P. McCallie said. "We passed it with flying colors, relative to their competitive nature and execution and the leadership that the team needed."
