UNC plays for state-line bragging rights today in the Tar Heels' annual visit to Myrtle Beach.

The No. 9 Heels will take on South Carolina (6-3) at around 3 p.m. in the middle game of the Carolinas Challenge tripleheader at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. All six teams in the event have winning records.

Francis Marion (8-0) will face Bluefield (8-4) at 1 p.m., with Coastal Carolina (7-3) facing Savannah State (8-5) in the nightcap that is supposed to start at 5 p.m. Right.

UNC has played at least one game in Myrtle Beach each year since 1994 under Coach Sylvia Hatchell (pictured).

Dawn Staley's Gamecocks, 4-0 against teams from North Carolina this season, are looking for their third straight win over an ACC opponent after defeating visiting N.C. State and Wake Forest in back-to-back games in Columbia.
