Game notes: Former UMaine coach Joanne Palombo-McCallie’s Blue Devils are coming off an eight-day break for final exams. Duke has won 22 of its last 23 games in Cameron Indoor Stadium including 14 straight December home games. The Blue Devils will be without second-leading scorer and rebounder Rebecca Greenwell (14.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg) and freshman guard Mikayla Boykin (3.2 apg, 3.2 rpg) due to injury. Brown has 14 steals over the last two games and is ninth in the country in steals per game. The Black Bears are going to have to do a thorough job defending 3-pointers because Duke has the nation’s 12th-best percentage beyond the arc (40.5 percent). UMaine is also going to have to protect the basketball better after turning it over 27 times in an 83-43 loss to No. 5 Mississippi State on Sunday.
