    Monday night the University of Louisville women’s basketball team will try to do something the men’s team couldn’t do, down Duke.

    The Cardinals (19-2 overall; 7-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference), who are No. 8 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25, play at the 15th-ranked Blue Devils (15-6, 6-2). The game, which tips off at 7:01 p.m. at famed Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C., will be televised on ESPN2.

    UofL is currently tied for second, along with No. 9 Florida State (20-2, 7-1), a half-game behind No. 4 Notre Dame (21-2, 8-1) and a full game ahead of Duke, in the conference standings.

    The Cards, who have won 11 of their last 12 games, are coming off a come-from-behind 78-58 victory - the 200th of coach Jeff Walz’s career - this past Thursday.

    Duke is led by 6-foot-3 senior forward Elizabeth Williams (14.7 ppg, 8.4 rpg), 6-1 freshman guard Rebecca Greenwell (13.9 ppg, 6.4 rpg), 6-5 freshman wing Azura Stevens (13.3 ppg, 3 rpg), 6-4 sophomore forward Oderah Chidom (8.5 ppg, 5.1 rpg), 5-10 senior guard Ka’lia Johnson (7.1 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 4 apg) and 6-4 senior forward Amber Henson (4.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg). Greenwell is from Owensboro, Ky.

    The Blue Devils started the season 9-4, losing to No. 1 South Carolina (51-50), No. 2 Connecticut (83-52), No. 14 Texas A&M (63-59) and No. 19 Nebraska (60-54), while beating No. 11 Kentucky (89-68).

    Duke started its ACC campaign with wins over Wake Forest (70-63) and Syracuse (74-72) before falling at Florida State (74-58). The Blue Devils bounced back with a pair of victories over Virginia Tech (65-40) and Miami (68-53)
