TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Natasha Howard has never beat Duke.

The Florida State senior forward will be remembered as one of the most prolific players in school history. One who won NCAA tournament games and etched her name in the record books. But she wants to add a win against Duke to her resume..

The Blue Devils (18-1, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won seven consecutive games against the Seminoles dating back to the 2008-09 season.

Howard gets one last regular season crack at No. 3 Duke when the 24th-ranked Seminoles (14-4, 2-3 ACC) host the Blue Devils Thursday.

Howard says, "I would always remember that, my senior year, January 23rd, we beat Duke. If we beat them."

The Seminoles started the season 14-1, but have lost three in a row in conference play.
