Her 11 rebounds was a career high, while her 13 assists was a new school record for Duke. In addition, the Stockton, Calif., native guided the Blue Devils to two home nonconference wins against 13th-ranked Purdue and Pittsburgh. Against Purdue on Thursday, Gray had 11 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three steals in 36 minutes.

Rountree, playing in just her sixth collegiate game, had a breakout performance, scoring a game-high 27 points in the loss at 16th-ranked Penn State. The newcomer from Jacksonville, Fla., made a season-best five three-pointers and made all of her eight free throw attempts. In addition, Rountree dished out three assists and committed just one turnover in 31 minutes in the Tar Heels' lone game of the week.
