Members and fans of the No. 1-ranked women’s basketball team celebrate February 25 after defeating No. 4 North Carolina in Cameron Indoor Stadium, in the final game of the team’s undefeated regular season. Led by Coach Gail Goestenkors and senior captains Alison Bales and Lindsay Harding, the Blue Devils compiled a 29-0 regular season record and achieved the first perfect season in the history of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Bales had sixteen points and twelve rebounds in the game, and Harding scored fifteen points. “You don’t get a banner that says ‘undefeated for the season,’ ” Bales said. “But it is an accomplishment, and we’re really proud of what we’ve done so far this season."
