UNC will host Gardner-Webb, a member of the Big South Conference, while N.C. State will travel to South Carolina.

Guess which women's basketball team might have a tougher assignment today?

The No. 11 Tar Heels will host the Runnin' Bulldogs today at 3 in the Smith Center. And they'll be taking on one of the hottest teams in the region. Rick Reeves' club is on a school-record eight-game winning streak, has five players averaging in double figures and is led by 6-6 center Sandra Vaitkute.

UNC will counter with one of the nation's best backcourts, with Cetera DeGraffenreid (pictured) leading the show at the point.

N.C. State will be on the road against the Gamecocks, who beat the Wolfpack 56-55 last season in Raleigh. It's another big test for the team under first-year coach Kellie Harper, as every non-conference win is important to get State back into post-season play after a one-year absence.
