No.7 UNC and No. 8 Duke will both play their final women's basketball games of 2009 today at 2 p.m.

At least for the Blue Devils, it might be a pretty good challenge.

Sylvia Hatchell's Tar Heels (10-1) will host Atlantic Sun Conference member East Tennessee State (4-5) in the season's second game at renovated Carmichael Auditorium, while Joanne P. McCallie's Blue Devils (10-2) will visit unranked Temple (10-2).

UNC will also be at home against downwardly mobile Winston-Salem State on Saturday while Duke hosts Providence on Sunday in the teams' final games before ACC conference play.
