Don't leave Haley Peters '10 unmarked.

Peters '10 hit seven of her first eight shots in scoring 15 of Duke’s first 27 points in a 96-80 win at Vanderbilt Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The former Peddie All-American made 12 of 16 attempts from the floor en route to a career-high 25 points to advance the Blue Devils to the Fresno Regional semifinal. Duke (26-5) will play St. John's, a 74-70 winner over Oklahoma on Saturday.

Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie on the play of Haley Peters, " You can't leave Haley alone.  She has shot it a million times in the gym.  She is in the gym extra and works extremely hard.  She is just one of those dream players in the sense of the work ethic and the talent.  You can't leave her.  She takes offense to that, she likes to be guarded.  She's done this before; Maryland at home comes to mind."

The Blue Devils routed Samford by 35 in the first round.

Averaging 11.1 points per game, Peters has started every game at forward while shooting 51.7 percent from the field.
