Mar. 25, 2013 @ 09:13 PM

If the Duke women’s basketball team is going to reach the NCAA regionals for the 15th time in 16 season, the Blue Devils must get past No. 7-seeded Oklahoma State Cowgirls tonight at Cameron Indoor Stadium (7:10 p.m., ESPNU).
Third-seeded North Carolina faces the challenge of playing sixth-seeded Delaware on its home court in Newark — on the night that Blue Hens’ legend Elena Delle Donne will play her last home game (7 p.m., ESPN2).
Duke (31-2) used a balanced scoring attack to get past Hampton 67-51 in the opening round Sunday, led by Tricia Liston with 20 points.
Toni Young leads the Cowgirls (22-10), averaging 16.2 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.
The Blue Devils also are looking to close the 2012-13 season undefeated at home, having won their previous 15 games at Cameron.
