The Lone Undefeated

A crazy come-from-behind win by Duke over North Carolina State on Sunday keeps the Blue Devils at the top of the College Women's Hoops S-Factor standings. Freshman Chelsea Gray's layup with 12 seconds left kept Duke's undefeated season alive for at least a few more days. (One week from today, Duke squares off with Connecticut.) With Florida Gulf Coast losing last week for the first time all season, Duke is now the only undefeated team in the nation, but they are ranked third in the country behind Baylor and Connecticut. Duke's stratospheric RPI is due in part to the fact that they have played and beaten seven top 25 RPI teams this year, the most in the country (second place is Connecticut at six, followed by Baylor and Stanford with four each).
