Proving Her Point

TAMPA - Duke's Jasmine Thomas didn't get the start, but after just a few minutes of action, after it was obvious that Brittany Mitch and Wanisha Smith struggled at getting the ball up the court, Thomas entered.

On the first play that she was in the game, Thomas stole the ball and went coast to coast for a driving lay-up and the foul.

Thomas must be a factor for Duke to win this season. She will be the answer to the departed Lindsey Harding. On both offense and defense, as she seems to excel at both thus far in this game.

After only five minutes of action the score is Duke 8, USF 4.

The Blue Devils look like they should be able to feed the ball inside to the 6-foot-5 Chante Black all night long. The Bulls simply don't have anyone who can bang with her size down low.
