Scholl, Duke get by Clemson

ATHENS, Ga. -- Chalena Scholl picked up a 7-6, 6-4 win at No. 4 singles to hand Duke a 4-1 win against Clemson in the Round of 16 on Thursday.

Duke got off to a 1-0 lead after doubles after Hanna Mar and Beatrice Capra won 8-6 on No. 1 after the Tigers and Blue Devils had split on courts Nos. 2 and 3.

In singles, Rachel Kahan was first off the court with a 6-4, 6-3 win at No. 5 singles to give the Blue Devils a 2-0 lead. Mar then brought Duke on the verge of clinching with a 6-4, 6-2 win at No. 3 singles.

Clemson would close the gap to 3-1 when Joana Eidukonyte won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 6 singles. Scholl would end Clemson's hopes of a comeback with her win at No. 4 singles.

This was the third meeting between the two teams, with each team winning once. Clemson won 4-3 on April 17 while the Blue Devils swept the Tigers in the ACC tournament quarterfinals.

Duke will face UCLA at 4 p.m. Saturday in the quarterfinals. This is the 17th time in Duke history that the team has made the national quarterfinals.
