Won’t be any home cooking for Winthrop women at Duke

Winthrop faces a daunting task Saturday at 11 a.m. when it takes on Duke in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament. The contest will be a special experience for Winthrop redshirt freshman Zoe Vernon, who grew up a huge UNC fan but went to Carolina Friends High School in Durham. The Blue Devils haven’t lost to an unranked opponent at Cameron Indoor Stadium in 131 games, so Vernon’s contingent of about 20 friends and family members will be key for the underdog visitors.
