Tricia Liston scored 17 points and Duke shook off a slow start to beat Nebraska 53-45 Sunday afternoon 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 advance to Tuesday night's game against top-seeded Notre Dame with a berth in the Final Four on the line.

The Huskers (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 three-point tries. Nebraska entered the game averaging 6.4 three-pointers and made eight last week in stunning Texas A&M on its home floor.

Lindsey Moore led Nebraska with 11 points, but on 5-of-18 shooting. Leading scorer Jordan Hooper, who averages 18.2 points, left with an apparent knee injury with eight minutes left and scored just six points.
