Both of the ACC's top two women's basketball teams are back in action tonight, and both will be on the road.

No. 7 Duke (14-2, 2-0 ACC) gets what may be a tougher challenge than might have been expected when the season started when the Blue Devils visit No. 25 Miami (13-2, 1-0). Jasmine Thomas (pictured) leads the Blue Devils in both scoring and assists.

And No. 10 UNC (13-2, 1-0) will look to recover from its blowout loss at No. 1 Connecticut when the Tar Heels visit resurgent Virginia Tech (10-5, 0-1).

Miami is coached by Duke alumna Katie Meier.

Virginia Tech also has a Triangle connection, as Northern Durham alumna Utahya Drye is averaging in double figures and is the Hokies' top rebounder.
