Duke to host UNC before sellout throng, State visits Wake in regular-season ender

Posted by on Sun, Feb 27, 2011 at 12:04 AM

It’s Big Four day in ACC women’s basketball, with the four in-state schools squaring off with traditional rivals as part of the six-game conference slate that will wrap up regular-season conference play.

Winning and losing streaks, tournament seeding, chances at post-season play and revenge will all be part of the package as N.C. State travels to Wake Forest for a 2 p.m. contest, followed by No. 9 Duke’s Senior Day game against No. 13 UNC at 5 in the ACC’s regular-season finale.

The game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, which will be shown live national on FOX Sports Networks, is a sellout.

Defending conference champion Duke, which fell to the Tar Heels 62-60 on Feb. 7 in Chapel Hill, has won two straight games and with a victory would earn the top seed for the ACC Tournament beginning Thursday in Greensboro. Seniors Jasmine Thomas, Krystal Thomas and Karima Christmas will play their final regular-season home game today.

The Tar Heels have dropped three straight games and will have either the No. 5 or No. 6 seed in the tournament depending upon today’s results.

The Wolfpack, which is on a three-game winning streak, must extend the streak to six to qualify for the WNIT. Kellie Harper’s club could be seeded anywhere from No. 7 to No. 11 for the ACC Tournament depending on the results of the conference’s games today.

State, which won the teams’ earlier meeting 80-59 on Jan. 10 in Raleigh, leads the series with the Deacons 60-9.
