DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Every Duke season has ended the same way for the upperclassmen on the Blue Devils' roster: get one step from the women's Final Four, then lose.

The Blue Devils have lost three straight regional finals and are determined to not make it four in a row.

Second-seeded Duke (32-2) plays sixth-seeded Nebraska (25-8) on Sunday in the Norfolk Regional semifinals.

And if the Blue Devils beat the Cornhuskers, they'll face the winner of top-seeded Notre Dame and 12th-seeded Kansas for a spot in New Orleans — and a chance to reverse recent history. Duke hasn't reached the Final Four since 2006.

Guard Tricia Liston said Friday Duke isn't looking past Nebraska, but is "trying to make it a different season for us this year by taking that next step."
