CHICAGO -- Lisa Etienne thinks she and Hartford caught Duke (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP) napping. They definitely caught the Blue Devils on an off night.Etienne scored 15 points to help Hartford upset the sloppy Devils 53-51 in the first game of the DePaul Invitational on Friday night."I think they underestimated us because we're Hartford," Etienne said. "I hope that people realize that they should take Hartford seriously and we got more recognition that we are a serious basketball team."
• Duke became the third top-5 team to lose this season when Hartford's MaryLynne Schaefer made 1 of 2 free throws with 5 seconds remaining.
• Duke scored just 17 points in the first half on 6-for-24 shooting.
• Hartford improves to 4-2 against ACC opponents under Jennifer Rizzotti, and the Hawks have defeated a ranked opponent in each of the last four seasons.
