Duke puts 17-game NCAA home win streak on the line vs Oklahoma State in 2nd round

Duke is always tough to beat at Cameron Indoor Stadium — especially in the NCAA tournament.

Still, the Blue Devils are getting ready for a major test from an Oklahoma State team that is capable of matching Duke's high-powered offense.

Second-seeded Duke (31-2) puts its 17-game home winning streak in tournament games on the line Tuesday night against the seventh-seeded Cowgirls (22-10) in the second round of the Norfolk Regional.

Oklahoma State forward Toni Young said Monday that the key is getting off to a good start and "keeping that burst throughout the whole game."

Duke is 19-2 in NCAA tournament games at home and hasn't lost one since 1996. No team not named Connecticut has come into Cameron and beat the Blue Devils since 2008.
