Greenwell, a preseason American Family Insurance ALL-USA selection and Duke commit, made her first six threes and was 10 of 12 from beyond the arc at halftime and 17 of 27 for the game.

"My main goal was to beat the school record (10), which was held by my sister (Rachel)," said Greenwell, who is three points away from reaching 3,000.
