NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Haley Peters' career-high 25 points led five Blue Devils in double figures, and Duke turned in its best shooting performance of the season Tuesday night in routing Vanderbilt 96-80 to advance to the Fresno Regional semifinal.

The second-seeded Blue Devils (26-5) trailed only once before a display that included nine straight made baskets in the first half. Duke advanced to its 14th regional semifinal in 15 seasons.

Tricia Liston had 23 points for Duke. Elizabeth Williams had 13, and Chelsea Gray and Shay Selby each had 10.

Not even Memorial Gym, the Southeastern Conference's oldest gym with no air conditioning, gave Vanderbilt (23-10) any help on a night the temperature reached 90 by halftime.

The only thing hotter was Duke's shooting.

Christina Foggie had 26 points for Vanderbilt.
