No. 21 Florida State visits Reynolds Coliseum for the annual “Hoops 4 Hope” game.

The day is dedicated to breast cancer awareness with proceeds going to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. As always for breast cancer awareness contests, fans are encouraged to wear pink.

It’s the sixth edition of the annual event, in which the Wolfpack is currently 4-1.

The other ACC women’s game in the Triangle will be at 2 p.m. in Chapel Hill, where No. 15 UNC will be a very solid favorite against last-place Virginia Tech.

NCSU leads the series with Florida State 24-10, but fell 74-71 on the road last season. The Wolfpack has lost four straight games, three of them to ranked opponents.

UNC leads its series with the Hokies 12-3, but should be out for revenge after suffering a shocking 79-64 loss in Blacksburg last season.
