Just how can a basketball team bounce back from an 89-point loss?

N.C. Central is going to find out today.

The Eagles (1-10), who fell 117-28 at Duke on Monday, try to get onto the winning track today when they host South Carolina State (4-6) at McLendon-McDougald Gym. SCSU beat the Eagles 81-75 in overtime back on Dec. 1 in Orangeburg.

That contest is one of two on the slate for the Triangle's Division I women's teams.

N.C. State (8-5) will be on the left coast tonight for a battle with Southern California (6-4). The Trojans are on a two-game winning streak since their 78-72 loss to Duke in Durham on Dec. 6.

NCCU is expected to again have leading scorer Joanna Miller (pictured), who was out on a one-game suspension for a violation of team rules while her teammates took on Duke. The game against the Bulldogs is the opener of a six-game homestand for Joli Robinson's club.
