In Chelsea Gray's absence, freshman Alexis Jones keeps Duke women rolling entering NCAAs

Duke hasn't missed a beat with Alexis Jones running the show.

Since sliding over to play point guard after Chelsea Gray was injured, the flashy freshman has played with supreme confidence — and her versatility and leadership have kept the Blue Devils flying high entering the NCAA tournament.

Jones' three highest-scoring games have come in the absence of Gray, the Atlantic Coast Conference co-player of the year.

Her run was capped by a 24-point performance in the ACC championship game that led to her selection as the MVP of the tournament.

Jones says she is simply trying to "make the team just go like I know I can."

The second-seeded Blue Devils (30-2) face 15th-seeded Hampton (28-5) on Sunday in the first round of the Norfolk Regional.
