Anthony Anderson SBT 2/3/18

SOUTH BEND — As surging Notre Dame tries to take surging Duke out, the Irish may have to do so without Kathryn Westbeld, who looks like she’s been duking it out.

The availability of the senior forward for Sunday’s nationally televised 1 p.m. women’s basketball contest could be a game-time decision, coach Muffet McGraw said Saturday.

While the acute swelling around Westbeld’s purpled right eye has begun to go down after she was poked during the third quarter of Thursday’s 94-62 victory over North Carolina, she was held out of the practice the Irish engaged in Saturday afternoon shortly before departing for Durham, N.C.

“We’re hopeful, but she’s questionable,” McGraw said of Westbeld.

If Westbeld doesn’t play, recently hot Kristina Nelson will get the start, according to the coach, while the scholarship portion of ND’s bench will be chopped in half to a solitary freshman, Danielle Patterson.


Expect zero sympathy for the No. 5-ranked Irish (21-2, 9-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) from the No. 19 Blue Devils (18-5, 7-3).

Just like Notre Dame, Duke’s lost a key player for all of this season because of a knee injury that was suffered in the NCAA Tournament last season. That’s Kyra Lambert for the Devils, Brianna Turner for the Irish.

Likewise similar to ND, Duke’s been slammed again this season. Though the Devils can’t match the three players that the Irish have lost to season-ending knee injuries, they did lose heralded freshman point guard Mikayla Boykin for the rest of the winter in early December.

And just like the Irish with Westbeld, the Devils have a starter who’s questionable for Sunday in Haley Gorecki. The sophomore sharpshooter who is averaging 11.5 points sat out Thursday’s 77-59 win over Georgia Tech with a hip injury and is listed as “day to day” in Duke’s pregame media notes.

It may not matter. Just as ND has done, the Devils have forged forward.

They’ve won seven of their last eight, the loss an overtime decision at rival North Carolina.

Furthermore, for their game with the Irish, they’ll be home, where they’ll be aiming for a program-record 31st straight regular-season victory.

“It’s always hostile because the crowd is always right behind you,” McGraw said of Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Duke is engineered by ACC Player of the Year candidate Lexie Brown. The senior guard leads the ACC in scoring (20.6) and steals (3.7) besides averaging 4.1 assists.

Brown’s part of a trio with Gorecki and senior Rebecca Greenwell who have carried the Devils to 41.6 percent marksmanship from 3-point land, ranking the team third in the nation.

All three are shooting 41.9 percent or better outside the arc. They’ve combined to drain 137-of-318 triples.

“It’s going to be difficult. We might have to play some man-to-man,” said McGraw, whose club has gone almost exclusively with an increasingly effective zone lately. “We’ll have to see how it goes, but we didn’t do a good job on (Florida State’s) Imani Wright, and that was just one (player), so to guard three of ’em as well as they shoot it will be difficult. But we’re getting smarter, we’re getting better, we’re more active.”

“You gotta know where they are in the zone and shade towards that side,” Irish guard Marina Mabrey said of the challenge Duke presents, “while still keeping the high post covered and getting out there with a hand up to contest the shots.”

Mabrey’s coming off her most productive game of the season in the win over Carolina. The junior notched or matched season highs with 25 points, eight assists and five steals. She went 9-of-15 from the field with three triples and 4-of-4 at the line.

As a team, the soaring Irish rang up their fourth straight league victory by 30 or more points, matching a 19-year-old standard, and won their sixth straight game overall.

In their last five, beginning with the second half of the Tennessee contest, they’ve pummeled their opponents 428-252, and that includes a pair of top-10 victims.

Duke’s been nowhere near that overwhelming, but the Devils have won each of their last three by at least a dozen points. They’re looking to make ND their second ranked victim of the season, having downed Oregon State, and they fell just 66-60 earlier this month at No. 3 Louisville — the same place the Irish suffered their 100-67 aberration loss.

With six league outings remaining for each, the Cardinals and ND are tied atop the ACC at 9-1. Virginia’s next at 8-2, followed by Duke and North Carolina State at 7-3.
