Wolfpack continues the gauntlet with a visit to Miami tonight

Posted by on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 12:09 AM

N.C. State’s killer January schedule in women’s basketball continues tonight, when the Wolfpack visits No. 16 Miami for a 7 p.m. contest.

Miami, coached by Duke alumna Katie Meier, is smarting from Monday night’s 66-59 loss at Florida State that ended the Hurricanes’ 17-game winning streak.

Meanwhile the Wolfpack is recovering from some major heartbreak, having seen a 20-point second half lead disappear in a 65-64 loss to visiting No. 3 Duke on Sunday.

N.C. State has won all but one of 10 meetings with Miami, prevailing 66-64 last season in the Wolfpack’s annual “Hoops for Hope” breast cancer awareness game.

The Wolfpack returns home on Sunday at 1 for this season’s “Hoops for Hope” game against FSU.
