In its largest loss to North Carolina at home since 1993, #9 Duke fell to the high-powered Tar Heels 93-76 Monday night in Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The Blue Devils (16-6, 5-2 in the ACC) had not given up more than 90 points to their rivals since 1995.

#3 UNC (20-2, 7-0) entered the game leading the nation in scoring and the Blue Devil defense did little to halt the prolific attack. Senior LaToya Pringle and freshman Cetera DeGraffenreid torched Duke for 18 points each, and Pringle added 11 rebounds and four blocks to finish off her dominant performance.
