Taylor, No. 13 Duke women turn back Syracuse 62-50

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Celeste Taylor scored 15 points, turning consecutive turnovers into late baskets and No. 13 Duke turned back Syracuse 62-50. The Blue Devils were up by six when Reigan Richardson stole the ball and fed Taylor for a layup as the clock dipped under two minutes. Taylor knocked the ball loose on the ensuing inbounds and turned that into a jumper for a 56-46 lead with 90 seconds to go. The Orange then missed a pair of shots before Taylor scored on a fast break with just under a minute to play. Shayeann Day-Wilson led the way with 16 points as the Blue Devils bounced back from having their 11-game winning streak snapped with a 61-56 loss at rival North Carolina on Thursday. Alaina Rice scored 15 points for  Syracuse.
