Duke’s depleted lineup, turnover problems give Winthrop hope

A No. 15 seed has never beaten a No. 2 seed in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament. Winthrop has that chance Saturday at 11 a.m. when it faces Duke in Durham. The Blue Devils have lost three players, including two point guards, to season-ending injuries and have issues turning the ball over, but beating Duke on its home court will still be a tall challenge for Kevin Cook’s Winthrop club.
