2010.02.21 UNC Women bball vs. NC State - Images by Independent Weekly

It's been a disappointing season for Sylvia Hatchell and the UNC women's basketball team. Perennially among the nation's elite, they've dropped out of the top 25 and currently suffer the indignity of a losing conference record.

Things didn't get better on Sunday; they lost by a 73-64 margin to cross-town rival N.C. State and its first-year coach, Kellie Harper. N.C. State now sports a .500 conference record (6-6) to go with its overall record of 16-11. With this loss, the Tar Heels drop to 5-7 in the ACC, and 17-9 overall.

Fortunately for all concerned, there was a more important cause:  The game was a part of the WBCA "Pink Zone" games to raise awareness about the Kay Yow/WBCA cancer fund, a nonprofit created to raise money to support the search for a cure to breast cancer. Each team warmed up in pink tees with the fund's logo and UNC played in special pink uniforms. Fans were even encouraged to attend the game wearing pink.

For N.C. State, Bonae Holston and Marissa Kastanek led the effort, with 20 and 17 points, respectively. Kastanek, a freshman guard, carries the distinction of being the last recruit of the late Yow, who died last Jan. 24 of breast cancer. Cetera DeGraffenreid and Italee Lucas were the dominant performers for UNC, scoring 22 and 15 points, respectively. The box score is here.
