Tar Heels look to bounce back tonight against Virginia

Posted by on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 1:31 AM

UNC will be looking to get the ship righted tonight at 6:30, as the No. 15 Tar Heels take on long-time ACC women’s basketball rival Virginia.

The game will be shown live on FSN South.

UNCs Italee Lucas pops a jumper against Connecticut.

The Tar Heels (17-3, 3-2 ACC) are 3-3 over their last six games including an 88-65 loss at then No. 15 Maryland on Sunday. Virginia (12-9, 1-4) is in an expected rebuilding season under veteran coach Debbie Ryan.

Virginia beat the Tar Heels 82-78 last season in double overtime, snapping a 13-game losing streak in the series. UNC leads the series 44-32.

It’s the opener of a two-game homestand for UNC, which will host Virginia Tech on Sunday at 2.
