NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Tricia Liston scored 17 points and Duke shook off a slow start to beat Nebraska 53-45 Sunday in the semifinals of the Norfolk Regional of the women’s NCAA tournament.

Alexis Jones added 14 points for the Blue Devils (33-2), who also struggled last weekend at home. They advanced to Tuesday night’s game against top-seeded Notre Dame with a berth in the Final Four on the line.

The Cornhuskers (25-9), in the round of 16 for just the second time in school history, struggled from the field. They shot 30.3 percent and hit just 3 of 24 3-point tries. Nebraska entered the game averaging 6.4 3-pointers and made eight last week in stunning Texas A&M on its home floor.

Lindsey Moore led the Cornhuskers with 11 points, but on 5 of 18 shooting. Their leading scorer, Jordan Hooper, who averages 18.2 points, left with an apparent knee injury with 8 minutes left and scored just six points.
